Middle School STEM

Cypress Christian School students have opportunities K-12 to explore STEM programs. Critical thinking and problem-solving weave throughout all subjects and are then given an outlet to practice these skills in STEM classes and electives. The K-12 STEM programs give our students exposure and chances to excel in many areas.

Cypress Christian middle school students build on the STEM foundation that was set for them in elementary school. All core classes of science, math, history and ELA incorporate Microsoft Office into the curriculum in different ways. Each grade level has a different opportunity for a research project with a presentation component. Throughout middle school, students are developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will help them in their high school classes as well as their future endeavors outside of school.
