Program Overview

Honey Creek Elementary STEM Academy is designed to seamlessly integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math concepts in our delivery of  the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE).  Teaching teams, in collaboration with subject matter experts, community partners, and curriculum coaches, develop rigorous, cross-curricular units based on the GSE and STEM components.  These student-centered, real-world exploratory units are designed to include: 

interactive project-based learning;
support advanced classroom and laboratory experiences;
student collaboration;
numerous field studies;
service learning components;
21st Century Technology Tools; and
enrichment opportunities for all students.

Components for Student Success

Our hands-on approach to STEM is designed to spark the students’ desire to explore, investigate, examine, and question real-world topics.  Students will work independently and together to discover solutions and expand their knowledge and skills in a fun and interactive learning environment.   Parent involvement is essential for supporting school, class, and student projects, as well as connecting STEM between school and home. 

Additional Academic Services

Instructional methods at Honey Creek Elementary incorporate a myriad of ideas and teaching styles.  Our school mission ensures that teachers will provide all students with varied learning experiences using best practices and research-based instruction.  As a result students are given the opportunity to participate in numerous acceleration, remediation, and enrichment programs.  Some programs available are Outdoor garden, Program Challenge and PM STEM.
