Fern Drive is a learning community that is committed to educating the next generation of 21st-century leaders with an emphasis on growth mindset, empathy, and STEAM integration to make a positive contribution to society.
We are proud to be a Level 3 Marzano High-Reliability School, a 2020-21 PBIS Platinum award-winning school, 2020-21 Common Sense Media Certified Digital Citizenship school, a 2019-20 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll at the Star Level, and a 2016 Gold Ribbon School. 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 expanding iPad program is seamlessly integrated throughout the curriculum, providing students the opportunity to pioneer their own learning through thoughtfully designed, engaging lessons both at school and at home. Our teachers are highly trained in all aspects of Curriculum and Instruction and use research-based teaching strategies to ensure all students are learning successfully.
