Opening its doors in 2013, The STEM Academy at Bartlett is a public school in Savannah, Georgia that provides an innovative and rigorous educational experience for middle school students by cultivating an environment of engagement, exploration, and creativity. The integration of technology, specifically a 1:1 iPad program, forward-thinking research-based practices, and problem-based learning has revolutionized teaching and learning at The STEM Academy. Sound instructional practices and a deliberate approach to curriculum integration form the basis for recognition from a number of organizations, including first whole-school STEM certified middle school by the Georgia Department of Education, second whole-school STEAM certified middle school in Georgia, Distinguished Breakout School by the Georgia Association of School Psychologists, Apple Distinguished School, Georgia Lighthouse School to Watch, and National Forum School to Watch.
