Stone is a STEAM Magnet School? What does that mean? 

Magnet School – Stone Middle School has received the Federal Magnet Schools Assistance Program (MSAP) Grant for 2013-2016, a competitive grant written by some of our school's leaders worth almost $4 million. Magnet Schools have a theme or speciality that provides a framework for how learning takes place at the school. 

This theme 
magnetizes the school to attract students that would not necessarily be zoned to attend the school. There are no minimum requirements or costs associated with attending a magnet school, but students that are not zoned for the school need to apply to attend the school. If there are more applicants than our facility can accomodate, the applicants will be selected by a random lottery.

S.T.E.A.M. – For decades, Stone Middle School has demonstrated vision and leadership in the areas of Science Research and Technology, so it was rather natural to capitalize on those strengths and build our theme around S.T.E.M. which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. There has been considerable discussion among educators on the role of creativity, intuition, visualization, design, reflection, revision, and innovation in both learning and STEM activities. These broad activities are enhanced by a strong Arts Education (which Stone also has excelled at), so our Magnet Theme becomes S.T.E.A.M. with Arts injected as a complimentary yet essential emphasis.

At Stone STEAM Magnet Middle, there will be many changes in our school culture, curriculum delivery and facility over the next three years. All of these represent extensions, improvements and enrichments of our learning community with the goal of delivering a rigorous STEAM-infused learning environment.

Changes @ Stone

Probably the single biggest change will be to take a school where students used technology relatively frequently and become the only school in the district to have a full-scale 1:1 technology initiative (1:1 represents the ratio of computers to students). Students will be assigned a mobile device for use during their time at Stone Magnet Middle. The first stage of the 1:1 technology initiative will roll out in the spring (2014) to all current seventh graders. The second stage will follow, during the 2014-2015 school year, with technology being assigned to all of next school year's seventh graders. 

We know that ubiquitous access to a mobile device for all students will empower students to learn like never before at Stone Middle School. Very few would deny the importance of the internet, global connections, collaborative opportunities, creative tools, design revisions, etc. that mobile technology provides. In education, some of the most powerful learning experiences occur when curiosity is provoked in a powerful way and the learning community can immediately explore and evaluate that event. Mobile devices deliver on 
just-in-time learningOur STEAM engine is our 1:1 initiative.

If you would like more information or to tour Stone STEAM Magnet Middle School contact our Coordinating Teacher Team at (321) 723-0741 ext.#5901, ext.#5902 or email:
STEAM.stone@brevardschools.org.

If you are not currently zoned to attend Stone, and this rigorous STEAM approach to learning sounds like a good fit for your sixth grade or seventh grade student, you must apply before 4 PM on March 31st, 2014:
