Dear Gus Franklin STEM Academy Parents, Guardians, Students and Community,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 School year. It is my honor and privilege to serve as the principal at Gus Franklin STEM Academy. This is our fourth year with the Gus Franklin Community. We host transitional kindergarten through fifth grade. We are located in Victorville just North of Mojave Drive and East of Rt. 395. As a partner to all the schools in the Adelanto School District we are working together to offer many opportunities for our children.
As a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) school our goal is to give students the ability to solve real world problems. When students leave GFS we want them to have the necessary skills to think critically by using the 6 Cs which are communication, critical thinking, character, collaboration creativity and citizenship.
Our STEM curriculum is Project Lead the Way (PLTW) which is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). It is our goal to give students access to STEM education that will allow all children to enhance their knowledge of 21st century life skills.
I want to personally thank you our community for making GFS one of the top performing schools in the Adelanto School District. We are honored to have you and your family as part of our learning community. Please remember that you are welcome to email me or contact the school at your convenience.
Mina J. Blazy
