Indian Creek is a GREAT school! Students at Indian Creek develop their skills in science, technology, engineering, and math which are the stepping stones to the future. Students learn in the six acre outdoor learning lab, maintain gardens, ponds, and a variety of habitats. All subjects are infused with STEM including digital music recording in music class and analyzing exercise data in physical education class. Indian Creek has specialized STEM classes that create areas where students can engineer through computer programming and robotics. Questions are encouraged and expected as the students observe their world in and out of the classroom. Students participate on the First Lego League Robotics Team (we took first place at the Regional competition last year!), develop skills in both the Mac and Windows computer labs, have classroom access to iPads and a broadcasting studio, and use authentic science equipment in the labs. Indian Creek students begin each lesson with questions such as why and how. These concepts are then interwoven into the reading, writing, and hands-on experiences each day. Indian Creek students are developing into technologically literate, caring citizens who are able to think analytically, ask questions to develop understanding, and be prepared for the 21st century.
