Flourishing forward with STE(A)M

Applied and hard sciences are the most popular post-secondary program choice for Newton’s Grove students—and that’s a trend we’re determined to keep up.

While STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) is the more commonly-used acronym, STEAM—which includes the Arts—better reflects our approach at Newton's Grove. STEAM rejects the notion that creativity must stand apart from the sciences. We believe excellence in science, math and coding requires creativity. Similarly, the Arts require precision, practice and a willingness to experiment. We are committed to hands-on learning, and the fostering of curiosity, which is the basis for all growth and new understanding.

These are the reasons why our approach to all fields of study is disciplined, interactive and creative.

Our new science and technology facilities are designed to support our extensive STEAM programming, with two fully-equipped science labs and two new computer labs. Monitored wi-fi is available throughout the school, and teachers use this technology creatively in the delivery of their lessons.

Students have access to a range of sophisticated software and can go beyond their regular computer classes to take courses in robotics, communications technology, business technology, and film and video production. Most importantly, our entire system and IT network is designed for growth—meaning we can adapt, adjust, and continue to engage and challenge our students as technology evolves.

Science fact:

Students from Grades 3 and up participate in our school Science Fair, with winners representing Newton's Grove at the Peel Region Science Fair.
