Why Choose Walgrove?
We provide a full, robust, and diverse experience for every student. Here’s just a few of our in-school programs that help bring excitement and wonder to every student’s day.
STEAM Studio Lab
Designed as a place for students to develop, test and document their ideas and theories by using a variety of materials through projects that are relevant, engaging and challenging. The pedagogy of Studio Lab is one of connections between areas of study, as well as making connections to the real world applications of the disciplines studied and practiced.
STEAM is project-based learning that integrates science, technology, engineering, ART, and mathematics in hands-on learning experiences for students. The two essential aspects of this teaching framework is the collaborative process and open-ended problem solving. Walgrove students complete on average a minimum of one STEAM project per month.
P.S. Arts provides weekly theater to complement the school vocal music program and the free after school Strings and Musical Theater Programs. Walgrove arts focus on creative and cognitive skills that will better equip students to be competitive and successful people.
