Palo Verde High Magnet School
Palo Verde High Magnet School’s STEAM programs provide access to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. This is done through a variety of classes including, but not limited to, Engineering, Computer Science, Film & TV, Clay, Ceramics, Painting, Drawing, Theatre, Band, Orchestra, Forensics, Biology, and multiple math options. One of the pillars of our STEAM Program is our Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program where students can earn industry certification in their area of study. Currently, our CTE Program includes Computer Science, Engineering, Film & TV, Digital Communications, and Sports Medicine.
STEAM education is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Along with content knowledge, a strong STEAM program establishes student behaviors, which include engagement in inquiry, logical reasoning, collaboration, and investigation. The goal of STEAM education is to prepare students for post-secondary study and the 21st century workforce.
Consistent with our mission, vision, and values, Palo Verde students continue to grow in skills, knowledge, and critical thinking abilities, while preparing to compete and succeed in a global economy. The students, staff, families, and community are bound together in a climate where diversity is appreciated. Palo Verde’s STEAM Programming not only increases engagement and motivation, but promotes a growth-mindset, collaboration, problem-solving skills, and the capacity to take risks. Our students are expected to take a positive, active role in their community, where they can be kind, open-minded, and reflective members of society. Our vision is to graduate all students with these skills, so they can be successful on whatever path they choose for their future.
Palo Verde offers dual-enrollment options which means students can earn college credit while attending their classes at PV. We also currently offer Advanced Placement (AP) options.Outside the classroom, Palo Verde students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities including clubs and sports.
