The faculty at Steinert is comprised of dedicated teachers, many of whom hold advanced degrees. They deliver a curriculum that is designed to prepare our students in each of the Core Curriculum Content Standards. We are cognizant of the importance of the state graduation requirements and have strategies in place to ensure pupil success. Several staff members have spent personal and professional time to enrich their knowledge attending workshops in instructional theory, cooperative learning, and technology application. Our students have benefited from the teachers’ efforts to gain recognition for our school through community outreach, academic competitions, student symposiums and festivals for the arts.
