Hattiesburg S.T.E.A.M Academy is Hattiesburg Public School District’s sixth grade-only school which incorporates and emphasizes the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Our school has made it a priority to create a positive school culture by creating a safe and fun environment, while providing for our students’ needs inside and outside of the classroom. We want to help maintain teacher and student buy-in and feelings of worth and importance to increase both teacher and student attendance on their return to school in-person this year. In order to be effective, our school has partnered with community businesses and organizations to help amp up our PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) to provide incentives and events to help support a positive learning environment. Teacher and
student attendance has been proven to correlate with student academic success and proficiency. We focus on keeping an eye towards our school’s vision: to create a learning environment that promotes and grows all students to proficiency and beyond.
