Ponus Ridge STEAM Academy

Ponus Ridge STEM School Front


As part of the district's School Building Program, the current Ponus Ridge Middle School will be renovated and expanded to become a new Pre-K to 8th grade STEAM school. 

STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, Arts and Math) education is  an interdisciplinary approach to learning where academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons teaching students to apply science, engineering and mathematics in a technology rich environment. 

State and national evidence demonstrating a growing future need for STEAM careers, and that STEAM literacy will serve all educational pathways in the future. As a result, the Norwalk Board of Education is expanding the model in Norwalk Public Schools with an interdisciplinary STEAM curriculum at the new Ponus Ridge K-8 STEAM Academy.
