About the STEM Academy

Windham’s regional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Academy is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 magnet school in northeastern Connecticut, enrolling 570 students from the Town of Windham and surrounding communities.

The STEM Experience

Our teaching methods, technology offerings, laboratories, classrooms, and modern equipment provide students with the tools they need to apply effective, critical thinking skills to any challenge.  Hands-on inquiry learning helps to motivate students as they gain confidence across academic disciplines and develop a broader intellectual and personal understanding of the world around them. Learning becomes more meaningful as personal inquiry stimulates higher-level thinking, and students investigate real-world problems in a stimulating and supportive learning environment.
