Advanced Biology with Kindergarten
On January 15th the St. Louis High School Advanced Biology class took a trip to Carrie Knause to teach kindergarten students topics within the Next Generation Science Standards. These concepts were taught through fun, interactive stations that pertained to biology, genetics, ecology, earth science and physics.
Through the use of STEM education, a style that focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, high school students were able to find a deeper understanding of their own topics by molding topics to adhere to a kindergarten level. This was a great experience for both our new and upper level learners, it also provided opportunities to practice leadership and multi-tasking skills.
A huge thank you to the kindergarten team for allowing the high school students to participate in their science curriculum! Photo Gallery

Together we Can, Together we Do!
Our theme for parents, staff, and students of St. Louis Public Schools for the 2014-15 school year is: “Together we Can, Together we Do!” It takes all of us working together to support our children and continue to have such a fine upstanding community.
We will be celebrating the successes and building upon them to be a GREAT district for our community! We can raise student achievement; we can engage parents in the learning process; and, we can build community partnerships that support student achievement that last a lifetime.
“Together we Can, Together we Do!”
