Officials to get glimpse at state’s first STEAM-certified school program in DeKalb County

Henderson Mill Elementary School officials will demonstrate their new STEAM-certified instruction methods for state and local educators Tuesday in a special presentation.

DeKalb County School District officials recently announced the STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math — certification. Georgia Department of Education officials said three schools have been certified STEAM schools since the achievement was first offered in August 2016: Atlanta’s Drew Charter Elementary School and Wheeler High School.

Henderson Mill will receive its certification in a special ceremony prior to the demonstrations, officials said in a press release about the event, which begins at 8 a.m. Officials say the tour will show how the program supports student achievement.
