Engineering the Future

Beginning in 2018, Albuquerque Public Schools began offering the first ever STEM Pathway for students.  Garfield Middle School is proud to be the bridge between Mission Elementary School and Valley High School. This free Magnet program offers exploration in science, technology, engineering, and math.  

All classrooms utilize project based learning, the engineering habits of the mind, and foster design thinking.  This style of learning creates more opportunities for students to demonstrate problem solving skills, creativity, and inventiveness.  

 The Engineering the Future program is made possible by a grant from the Department of Education.  The pathway utilizes Project Lead the Way curriculum, a renowned program with a computer science and engineering focus.  All students can apply regardless of attendance zone with a district approved transfer.
