On Thursday, Lewisville ISD officials and staff from Donald Elementary School in Flower Mound gathered to celebrate the campus’s recent recognition as a nationally recognized STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) campus by the National Institute for STEM Education.
NISE certifies teachers, campuses and districts in STEM teaching. Using a competency-based, academic coach-led online learning platform, educators produce a portfolio of work that demonstrates proficiency across 15 STEM teacher actions.
Donald is the first elementary school in Texas, and fourth in the U.S. to receive the honor. Donald also has the largest number of nationally certified STEM teachers on a single campus in the country.
The Lewisville ISD STEM Academy at Donald Elementary is set to officially open in August.
