Does your elementary student love to problem solve? If yes, the Ed White E-STEM Magnet School may be the campus of choice for them. E-STEM is an acronym for Elementary - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Students in E-STEM schools participate in a highly enriched curriculum that focuses on STEM subjects. They are expected to think critically and solve real-world problems. E-STEM schools have an increased focus on engineering through basic design application and technology that is infused throughout the entire curriculum.
E-STEM education is implemented in every grade level for students who attend Ed White Elementary as their home school. In addition, the school district has approved the addition of extra spaces in kindergarten and first grade for students who are outside the attendance zone. The students for these spaces will be chosen through an application process and a lottery system. Students in grades 2-5 may transfer into the program through a first come, first served transfer request as space allows.
Parent information meetings are scheduled at Ed White Elementary STEM Magnet School, 1708 Les Talley Drive, El Lago, TX 77586, on April 14 and April 25. Both meetings will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the cafeteria.
The application deadline is 3:45 p.m. on May 13, 2016. Students who complete the online application by the deadline will be entered into a lottery system to determine which students in K-1 enroll in the E-STEM magnet school. The lottery will take place electronically at 9:00 a.m. on May 27, 2016. Transportation will not be provided for students unless zoned to Ed White Elementary. Parents may contact Laura Mackay at email@example.com for more information about the E-STEM program.
