Del Sol Academy is a
new STEAM school which opened in
fall 2018. Del Sol will serve students, grades TK-8, who live in the northwest
region of the Jurupa Unified School District. STEAM refers to curriculum and
learning experiences which develop one's knowledge and competencies in the
areas of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
From an early age, it is our mission to engage students in science, technology,
engineering, art and mathematics, to ensure students recognize the value and
applications of these content areas, while maintaining interest in STEAM
related college and career pathways. Such efforts will ensure students are competitive
in the global workforce, responsible global citizens, and equipped to handle global
STEAM for all between the bells.
Del Sol Academy will prepare students for future college and career goals
by developing and implementing units of study taught through the lens of
science. Curriculum will provide students with the opportunity to apply
the arts while partaking in thematic, project based learning experiences which
integrate technology, engineering, design, programming, inquiry, Common Core
Stat Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Learning experiences will provide students with the opportunity to develop 21st Century Fluencies necessary for future jobs and global citizenship. Fluency skills
include creativity; problem-solving; the ability to interpret and evaluate
data; expressing ideas through artistic mediums; using media to receive and
give information; and the capacity to successfully work, collaborate and
interact with virtual and real partners.
Del Sol Academy will embrace a culture that values taking personal
responsibility; understanding world-wide issues; respecting individuals & cultures;
using digital resources responsibly; servant leadership; and environmental
