STEAM² Magnet Information
Children are naturally curious. They need opportunities to explore, discover and create.
At Glenwood STEAM² Magnet Elementary School, we want to nurture this curiosity. We integrate science, technology, engineering, the arts, mathematics, and Mandarin to provide engaging, hands-on learning experiences that connect students with real-world challenges.
In addition to the NC Standard Course of Study, our curriculum includes an intentional focus on project-based learning that enables students to develop creative and artistic solutions.
Through either a dual language or world language pathway, all of our students study Mandarin, a character-based and tonal language that not only promotes brain development but also represents the number one language in the business community.
In a world that is becoming increasingly more connected, students need to develop a global mindset that prepares them to succeed in the most rapidly-growing fields. This is the mission of Glenwood STEAM² Magnet Elementary School.
We are InvestiGATORS.
Language Pathways within the STEAM² Magnet Program
As stated above, all students will study Mandarin, through either a dual language or world language pathway. Students within the dual language pathway will receive 50% of their daily instruction in Mandarin. Students in the world language pathway will receive 90 minutes of Mandarin instruction per week.
