The week of April 12th, students in all grades at The Learning Center Charter School learned about artist Paul Klee as part of the school’s continued emphasis on art as part of their E-STEAM curriculum.
E-STEAM stands for entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, art & agriculture, and math. A driving principle of the school’s educational approach is to teach students that science, math, and technology skills are essential and are deeply integrated within the activities of entrepreneurship and agriculture, as well as language, music, and visual arts.
“Our philosophy of education is built upon the idea that young learners need to be exposed to a broad array of rich learning experiences,” said Head of School, Ryan Bender.
“The arts – whether visual, written, spoken or performed, are an incredible venue to put academic lessons into practical use. We strive to bring a variety of arts experiences to our students during their time at our school. We offer opportunities to act, paint, draw, craft, write and participate in performances and competitions,” added Bender.
The school is adding a high school next year with the addition of 9th grade. Each subsequent year, an additional grade will be added to make the charter school a Kindergarten through 12th grade school in four years time. This same educational approach will be implemented in high school grades.
