“If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.” — Margaret Mead

 

Welcome to REACH

REACH Leadership STEAM Academy is a public charter school operating within the City of Riverside. REACH is a K-6 college preparatory elementary school with a Focus in STEM + Arts (science, technology, engineering, mathematics + art). With its college-going school culture, REACH utilizes a technology-rich instructional approach to learning that provides opportunities for students to learn through inquiry and exploration. REACH offers a rigorous curriculum tied to the Common Core Standards and boasts of a racially and economically diverse student body. REACH currently offers grades Transitional Kindergarten (TK) through 6th grade beginning Fall 2016.

STEM to STEAM

STEAMWhat’s in a Name?  From STEM to STEAM: STEAM = STEM + the Arts. STEAM is a framework for teaching across disciplines. Science and Technology are taught through the framework of Engineering and the Arts all of which are based in Mathematical elements. STEAM is an educational framework that ties the various disciplines together and brings reality into the classroom. All students are able to access the curriculum and participate in project-based activities regardless of achievement levels. STEAM builds technical and human-related skills and is the natural way of integrating intellectual processes. (Korea adopted STEAM as a new way of teaching nationally, from Kindergarten -12th grade).

Project Lead the Way Launch (PLTW) 

PLTW LaunchProject Lead the Way Launch teaches K-5 students to use computational skills, engineering design, and the scientific method to sort, predict, and explain data while finding solutions to relevant, real-world issues. Students are introduced to Biomedical and Computer Science pathways and apply STEM knowledge and habits of mind as they learn, explore, and grow in their knowledge and understanding of how the world around us works. REACH is one of 2 dozen schools who are piloting 12 modules for PLTW Launch in the 2014-15 school year.

Team Focus

Accountability 

accountabilityREACH Leadership Academy is an independent charter school which provides a tuition free, nonsectarian, public education to Riverside and its surrounding communities.  In addition to operational autonomy and flexibility over budget and programming, REACH is held to a much higher level of accountability for student achievement than traditional public schools.  The REACH team embraces this accountability and believes it is a powerful engine that drives results.
