Steam LogoWelcome to East Farms STEAM and the 19-20 school year!

If you are a parent looking for a new school or have moved into our attendance area we hope you will check out this website and everything East Farms STEAM has to offer. Better yet, please come and visit our school. Most visitors leave knowing they have witnessed a community that is proud of what they are doing. They have watched our students working and THINKING!

We are ready to have another amazing year of learning. Here at East Farms, we value questioning, wondering and exploring. We foster creativity and critical thinking through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) focused instruction. Our collaborative and exploratory opportunities will better prepare your child for middle school, high school, college and career.

Our safe and caring environment allows for students of all abilities to be successful. The East Farms’ staff continues to learn alongside their students while they become aware of and own their learning. It is an amazing time to be at East Farm STEAM and we hope you are ready to take this journey with us.

What makes us exemplary? We received the 17-18 Washington State-Recognized School Award for demonstrating growth in a variety of categories.  We were awarded the OSPI Lighthouse Grant/Award for STEM Education in 2015. We are an Elementary Launch Project Lead the Way School (PLTW). We teach and practice Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS). We believe building a strong culture of learners begins with a community that cares for each other. Our fifth and sixth graders are exposed to Middle Level (Gateway) Project Lead the Way. We have ART once a week for our students with Sami Perry, our Resident Artist. We have two STEAM days a year to help our students explore all that STEM and the ARTs have to offer. We’ve received close to $250,000.00 in grants to support our STEAM events and activities the past five school years.  We have an Annual STEAM night in March that hundreds attend!

We have a highly involved PTA, many volunteers and several business partners. Our staff is dedicated to each and every student. Together we believe we can help each student demonstrate growth in academic and social behavior.

On top of it all, we have fun! We believe in celebrating and we enjoy being at East Farms STEAM. Please come for a visit. We are very proud of what we are doing and we would love to share our success.
