Welcome to Wauwatosa STEM
Encouraging students to inquire, investigate and discover the world around them!
Our Philosophy of Education
Wauwatosa Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is the first charter school to open in the Wauwatosa School District. With a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, we provide an innovative and dynamic learning environment where students are encouraged to inquire, investigate and discover the world around them. Students in grades K-5 learn in multi-age classrooms and receive differentiated instruction.
This approach allows our students the opportunity to become independent, self-monitoring learners, develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and understand the importance of striving for quality and excellence.
WSTEM affords our students with optimum educational opportunities by providing an environment rich in parental involvement, community participation and strategic educational partnerships.
Our staff, parents and board members pledge to produce students who are academically prepared and socially engaged to conquer the challenges of the twenty-first century.
WSTEM Believes In...
cultivating each child’s potential
developing confident, independent, self-motivated thinkers
creating an innovative learning environment that is engaging and challenging
providing the opportunities and benefits of a multi-age setting
fostering a kinship among children, teachers, parents and the larger community
Greetings from the Principal
Michael Heun - Principal
"During the course of the year, we will strive for excellence by focusing on inquiry based learning and project based learning while utilizing technology to gather and present information. S.T.E.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. At WSTEM, we focus on these subjects to help our youth gain the skills required to succeed in today’s challenging and changing world. These skills include the ability to think critically, solve complex problems, and drive advancements in science and technology."
