The Cornerstone School's shift to a S.T.E.A.M.-centric curriculum, creates countless opportunities to provide meaningful learning experiences for children, where inter-curriculum connections are seamless, and allows for the application of knowledge and concepts to problem solve.
At The Cornerstone School, technology, math, engineering and robotics have been integrated into teaching and learning for the last 20 years. Recent research emphasizes the importance of the Arts in helping to develop the skills and competencies necessary for innovation in these areas. Additionally, research also shows that Art education builds many of the cognitive skills that are required in the business and professional worlds; skills like critical thinking and creative problem solving.
Athletics are a powerful tool that bring people together and create a sense of community. Studies have shown that exercise increases blood flow to the brain and helps the body build more connections between nerves, leading to increased concentration, enhanced memory, stimulated creativity, and better-developed problem solving skills.
Strong Arts and Athletics programs empower students by providing limitless opportunities for success, and appeal to both their physical and emotional needs. Permanent facilities for Arts and Athletics education allow The Cornerstone School to further nurture creativity and innovation and will provide students with a fully integrated program.
