STEAM Rich Engagement

In addition, IS 240 is a Magnet School that means we receive additional funding to maintain a Specialized Program.  Being a Magnet School allows our community to obtain alternative resources to provide our students with opportunities to participate in a rich engagement of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics in addition to all the other core content such as ELA, Social Studies, and Foreign Language.

Our Mission

To educate and empower our students, through the integrated study of S.T.E.(a+).M., as highly effective innovators, communicators, and designers who can creatively and collaboratively solve problems and compete as responsible global citizens who will ultimately apply what they learn to engineer solutions that have a positive impact on the world.

Project Based Learning

We take these elements and incorporate them into Project Based Learning units where students are able to utilize their knowledge and skills to respond to authentic complex questions, problems, or real-world challenges.
