STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics to prepare students to think both critically and creatively. STEAM teaches skills and subjects in a way that aligns with the way we work and problem solve in our daily lives.

Schools are successful when they help children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. For this to happen it is important that we have a safe environment that is supportive and conducive for growth. By setting forth clear social and behavioral expectations and directly teaching students about those expectations, we are creating a positive atmosphere for optimal learning.
We are excited to begin reinforcing Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS). PBIS is a system for improving student behavior. It is used with all students across all environments in school (classroom, lunchroom, restroom, playground, library, MUR and hallways) to help create a safe and effective learning environment. At Brittan Acres, we are committed to teach, reinforce, and acknowledge appropriate student behaviors. At all times, staff and students are expected to:
San Carlos School District's Strategic Plan focuses on aligning Curriculum and Instruction to a 21st Century Model of Learning. In doing so, we have adopted the Lucy Calkin's Reader's and Writer's workshop model to support our student's in literacy.
Additionally, we continue to place greater emphasis on Project-Based Learning to focus on problem solving, collaboration, critical-thinking, and time management skills, thus allowing greater student engagement and "ownership" of their own learning.
Singapore Math, Math in Focus helps students make sense of math. Through hands-on learning, visualization, and pictorial representations, we expect their understanding, confidence, and love of math to grow.
Below are various letters which explain in greater detail our literacy, math and homework here at BA. Please read through them, and let us know if you have any questions.
