A Message From the Principal
It is with great pleasure that we take this opportunity to welcome you to Lillie Burney S.T.E.A.M. Academy. Our school offers students a unique educational program that supports and supplements the College and Career Readiness Standards. Our program is designed to engage students in the learning process and to help them develop the necessary skills to be college and career ready. Our teachers will be working in teams to design and develop lessons that are cross curricula, which enables students to make relevant and long lasting connections across content areas. Students will gain vital knowledge and skills by working for extended periods of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge.
Middle school is a time of transition for parents and students. It is a time of choices and challenges. As students grow and learn, they will find joy and satisfaction in working closely with their peers and teachers toward a common goal. This best prepares them for their futures in education and the workplace. We are committed to providing the best education possible, but will require collaboration between parents, students as well as staff: that common commitment will be the key to our success here at the S.T.E.A.M. Academy. School and home can work together to build skills and knowledge, to reinforce values, and to develop a strong sense of self-worth.
We look forward to welcoming you to the S.T.E.A.M. Academy, where students are TODAY’S LEARNERS, TOMORROW’S LEADERS! Remember, you can call on me at any time with questions, concerns, or suggestions.
Tangela Rayborn, Principal
