Why STEM Program?

STEM education goes beyond school subjects. STEM education gives people skills that make them more employable and ready to meet the current labor demand. It encompasses the whole range of experiences and skills. Each STEM component brings a valuable contribution to a well-rounded education. Science gives learners an in-depth understanding of the world around us.

 

Foundational to Bultum Academy’s educational program is STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM education is delivered through a daily STEM Lab. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues through daily lab work. 

Why Choose Charter School and Why Bultum Academy?

Bultum Academy thrives on the unique advantages of being a charter school. As defined by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) § 4310(2), charter schools operate with greater autonomy and flexibility in exchange for a strong focus on student achievement.

 

Here's how we leverage this freedom to create an exceptional learning environment:

Tailored Learning and Family Partnerships: We design a curriculum that celebrates cultural heritage, integrates language instruction (Oromo), and caters to the specific needs of our student body. This flexibility allows us to offer specialized programs that may not be possible in traditional schools. We go a step further by actively involving families in their child's education. Unlike many public schools, we believe strong partnerships are crucial. We offer ongoing communication, workshops, and opportunities for families to contribute their unique perspectives, maximizing student learning potential.

 

Strategic Resource Allocation: As a charter school, we control our budget and resource allocation. This empowers us to prioritize investments directly impacting student learning and adapt to evolving needs with agility.

 

Building a Strong Team: We have the authority to recruit and retain exceptional educators who share our mission and values. This allows us to invest in ongoing professional development tailored to individual needs. Dedicated half-day Fridays ensure teachers have time for collaboration, lesson planning, and continuous learning.

 

Closing the Achievement Gap: We understand every child learns differently. Unlike typical public schools with larger class sizes, Bultum Academy pools resources to offer intensive small group interventions for both reading and math. These targeted programs help students who need extra support, effectively closing the achievement gap.

 

STEM for All: While resources may be limited, we are committed to preparing our students for the 21st century. Through creative integration, we weave STEM principles into various subjects. This innovative approach allows all our students to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and technological skills, regardless of limitations.
