Lower School

At HAFTR Lower School, we take great pride in our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program. We pride ourselves on not only focusing on hardware-centered programming but rather, an in-depth, project-based curriculum.

In addition to their project-based standard Science curriculum, students work once a week on hands-on lab projects. These advanced STEM labs will teach coding, robotics, 3D modeling, engineering, and entrepreneurship and directly correlate to the Science curriculum and state standards.

This advanced learning will help utilize the model of “failing forward.” Through this educational methodology, students learn that making mistakes is a means to an end. These real-world applications will help them better prepare for a seamless transition into high school and help them begin to understand what the world is beyond the walls of HAFTR.

Headed by our Science and STEM Chair, Gittel Grant, our STEM curriculum positions students to be the leaders of the learning process and prepares them with the skills they will need to be competitive in an ever-changing professional landscape.
