San Gabriel Mission Elementary School

SGMES is a STEM SCHOOL beginning in the 2020-2021 school year!

SGMES was chosen to be part of the newest cohort of STEM schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles! This brings countless opportunities to our students and teachers, including brand new NGSS-aligned curriculum at all grade levels, coaching, community partnerships and professional development for teachers and parents alike!
 
STEM education means that our students will be learning in an environment that encourages them to think, question, create, make mistakes and growth in a very hands-on, inquiry-based and student-centered way!
 
And the "STEM mindset" isn't seen only in a science classroom! The STEM mindset will be seen across all curriculum and grade levels as it encourages critical thinking, investigation and creativity; important characteristics of learners in ALL areas of study and play!
