    We believe in fostering critical thinking, problem solving and creativity through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, or STEAM. Students immerse themselves in year-round  hands-on science labs, and express their learning through collaborative projects rooted in STEAM principles.

    Fern Drive’s students receive innovative instruction in music, dance, theatre and art through our All the Arts program, and further their hands-on experiences through the All the Arts Creativity Center located on our campus. Our 1:1 iPad program is seamlessly integrated throughout the curriculum, providing students with the opportunity to pioneer their own learning through thoughtfully designed, engaging lessons both at school and at home.

    All of our teachers are Apple Certified and are highly trained in all aspects of Curriculum and Instruction and use research-based teaching strategies to ensure all students are learning successfully.   

    Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Fern Drive is proud of the strong partnerships forged with families and community, working together to build a bright  future for our students!
