Burleson ISD Opens New STEAM Middle School

A STEAM school integrates the content and skills of science, technology, engineering, and math, but also incorporates the elements of art focused upon visual and graphic design,” said Chief Academic Innovation Officer Dr. Leslie Bender-Jutzi. “Content in all subjects, including electives, will be STEAM focused.

“It is very exciting to see BISD progressively think about how best to serve its current and future students.Thank you for asking parents to complete the survey,” a parent commented on the survey.

“Not only will our families have more choice in their middle school students’ education, the new school will provide greatly needed relief at our two existing middle schools,” Dr. Jerry Hollingsworth, Associate Superintendent of Educational Operations said.

“This is the first of many innovative choices that our district intends to offer its students,” said Jimerson. “We understand that the best learning occurs when it is relevant to the learner, and the STEAM middle school will deliver our curriculum in a highly-engaging manner.”
