The Help Group’s STEM3 Academy, which is based in Valley Village and reports being the first school in the nation to provide a STEM curriculum to students with special needs, announced Tuesday that it is launching a K-12 school in Culver City and a middle school program in Sherman Oaks for the 2017-2018 academic year.
STEM3 Academy offers a comprehensive and integrated college preparatory curriculum, a statement said, adding that many of its students benefit from nontraditional teaching methods, such as project-based learning.
“Our STEM3 initiative provides a powerful early STEM education for students K-12 with a therapeutic residential option, vocational training for young adults, community events for families, and conferences and workshops for educators,” said Susan Berman, COO of The Help Group.
“We’re focused on developing strategies and programs for young people with special needs that encourage inclusion and a passion for STEM.”
