St. Gabriel School receives O.D.E. STEM credential

Aug 24, 2016 04:34PM ● By Today's Family
St. Gabriel School has been awarded by The Ohio Department of Education the STEM School Designation credential. This amazing certification caps a whole year process that designates St. Gabriel School a model STEM school, that promotes a culture of:

  • Rigorous, diverse, integrated and project-based curriculum with the goal to prepare students for college, the workforce, and citizenship

  • Emphasis on the role of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts in promoting innovation, service learning, and economic progress

  • Learning models that promote STEM skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, inquiry, collaboration, and communication

  • Building key instructional relationships with higher educational institutes to ensure student preparation

  • Building collaborative partnerships with STEM related area businesses and industry to develop student awareness and educational experiences in the area’s commerce and economy

  • Establishing a community based governing body and curriculum committee that will help guide, promote, and steer STEM initiatives at St. Gabriel into the future
SGS's proposal outlined how they exemplify the above criteria now and how moving into the future they will provide a teaching and learning culture of authentic STEM experiences that will build on what is already established. This shift in the school's learning culture will prepare students for the future of higher education and industry. 

This honor was recently announced and SGS is one of only two Catholic schools in the state to receive the credential. In addition, Mrs. Donna Lee Saladino will serve on the Cleveland Catholic Diocese steering committee for STEM expanded into STREAM to promote this culture of learning and service.
