Vineyard Elementary School will be recognized by the International STEM Education Association as a STEM Excellence Award recipient. Vineyard Elementary School will be one of four schools nationally (and the only school from California) receiving this award. The award will be presented during the STEM Expo 2016 in Branson, Missouri on October 9 - 11, 2016.
The STEM Excellence Awards program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools whose faculty and administration have implemented a comprehensive integrated STEM education program at very high levels or have made significant progress or significant strides in achievement through the implementation of comprehensive STEM programs.
The STEM Excellence Awards sets a standard of excellence for all schools striving for the highest level of achievement in integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Each year, the International STEM Education Association seeks out schools where the faculty and administration have sought to attain and maintain high academic goals through the implementation of comprehensive and long-term integrated STEM education programs. To be named a STEM Excellence Award recipient school is to join an elite group of educational innovators.
