Waukesha STEM Academy Reviews

3 reviews
I have some struggles with the way the elementary school is managed, but the middle school, although not perfect, is a well oiled machine. The teachers are amazingly supportive and students are highly engaged. There is a strong emphasis on collaboration, and I feel students get a lot of real world experiences because of it. There is a lot of room for growth for students who are above their grade level, yet there is a lot of support for students who might struggle. Students work their way through a proficiency based grading system, allowing them to reach their highest potential. I feel the middle school does a great job in preparing their students for high school and beyond with their type of academic structure and innovative curriculum. Bullying and behavior is dealt with in a professional and speedy manner. Student culture is positive and welcoming.

Waukesha STEM offers several opportunities you wouldn't find at other middle schools. One of the best things about the academy is it's math program, it allows you to move at your own pace. Not only is the curriculum self paced but this school allows you to personalize your learning, from science fair to student proposals enables students to make learning fun!
As a STEM Academy, there is a lot of hands-on and collaborative work. You are exposed to a variety of engineering disciplines. However, more recently, there has been such a heavy emphasis on technology that it is almost a detractor.
