Innovation abounds at Parkside! Our students not only receive high quality, creative instruction in the classroom, they are also provided with additional enrichment experiences that are unparalleled and have been recognized by various community groups as well as teams from the Florida Department of Education.
Check out some of the unique opportunities at Parkside:
·EnSTEM (Enrichment and STEM) – a standards based technology-rich program which all students attend weekly. Activities, K-5, include opportunities such as Vernier, coding, robotics, littleBits (circuitry), and the list goes on! Students' understanding of technology is dramatically enhanced, and this supports their consistent usage of iPads, desktops and other technological tools in every classroom!
·STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Academies – These after school academies, written by Parkside faculty members specifically for our students, provide enrichment in areas such as engineering, physics, environmental studies, health, journalism and so much more.
·GEMS (Girls in Engineering and Math) & STEM Superstars – Parkside students are given unique opportunities to participate in a variety of STEM experiences including unique field trips while learning about prospective STEM careers as they consider their future.
·Parkside Leadership Academy – students learn the skills of leadership as they serve as leaders in the school, while coupling that learning with a variety of service projects to the broader community.
·zSpace Virtual Reality – Parkside recently acquired zSpace, a virtual reality lab, that is taking STEM education to the next level! This is a powerful tool that will allow students to experience learning in a virtual reality format, enhancing their understanding of curriculum while providing highly engaging experiences!
·Summer Voyage – an extended summer program designed specifically for our students that includes hands on learning, field trips and more, to keep those young brains active!
