About Our School

Our Mission

The mission of the Science and Technology Academy at Knights Landing (Sci-Tech KL) is to inspire learning, curiosity, and problem-solving with a focus on science and technology to produce students prepared to lead and contribute in the ever-changing 21st century world.

 
Sci-Tech KL is Built on 4 Cornerstones:
  • The use of science curriculum to drive teaching and learning of all other core areas;
  • The use of inquiry-based instruction to foster curiosity and develop problem solving skills;
  • The infusion of technology into the students’ everyday learning experiences; and
  • The development of strong community partnerships that connect Sci-Tech’s students to high school and college students, and adults throughout the community.
