Elementary Students

What We Teach

Students, parents, and district educators share the responsibility of making sure that students are learning all they need to know, not just to meet Minnesota State Standards but to ensure success in life.

We take a learner-centered approach and consider children as active participants in the learning process; students engage in the construction of their own knowledge.

All of our students - at every grade level - receive instruction in the basic, core curriculum areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, music, physical education, and media/technology. In addition, students are taught to think creatively, solve problems, and work collaboratively. These are just some of the 21st century learning skills infused in our teaching which are essential for student success in a changing world.

STEAM for All

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEAM) is offered in grades K-12 at Stillwater Area Public Schools. We are one of the only districts in the state that offers this opportunity to all students.
