  • What is your curriculum?
    Aligned with the STEM Global Alliance Framework by The New York Academy of Sciences. At SOAR STEM, our curriculum is a forward-thinking blend of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), inspired by the STEM Global Alliance Framework. This approach prepares students for a globally interconnected world, emphasizing interdisciplinary learning and real-world application.
  • What is the success ratio of STEM students?
    Generally, STEM education provides a strong foundation for success in various careers and industries. Many STEM graduates find opportunities in high-demand fields with competitive salaries. However, STEM education equips students with critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that contribute to lifelong learning and adaptability. Success can manifest in various forms, such as groundbreaking research, innovative contributions to industry, or advancements in technology.
  • What is the difference between SOAR STEM Schools & other schools?
    We are the first and leading STEM School of Pakistan. Our curriculum disseminates interdisciplinary learning addressing the real-world issues. We have a robust research-backed Science Programme. Our curricula integrate Computer Programming in early years and upwards, to develop a analytical and problem solving skills in children. We have Ai- integration in our classes and provide a conducive tech immersive environment to children. Our classes are well rounded and focus on holistic development of children by sharpening their critical thinking and collaboration right from the start. We have a collaboration network with Tech giants in the industry which will aid children in their future growth. We have community and student engagement programmes. We align with UNICEF’s 2030 goals of Sustainability and are nurturing ethical innovators and responsible citizens right from the start.
  • My child is not STEM for him/her?
    All students benefit from integrated STEM education; it teaches independent innovation and allows students to explore subjects in greater depth. The hands-on nature of STEM instruction increases the likelihood of success among students of all learning styles and abilities.
  • Will reading and literacy still be taught?
    Reading and literacy skills are the building blocks to all learning, and therefore are integral to successful STEM education. Literacy will continue to be a focus of teaching and learning as a stand-alone curriculum in addition to being integrated into STEM activities.
  • How do music and art fit into STEM?
    Music and art play an important role in STEM education as they help nurture the creativity required for students to develop unique and innovative solutions to problems as well as to communicate their ideas effectively. No invention would be successful without attention to aesthetics–studying music and art gives students the ability to better present and market their solutions to engineering problems.
  • How do I know if this STEM school is "right" for my child?"
    We'd love to show you in person! Please book a visit with us!
  • I have heard this is a career-focused school. Aren't K-5 students too young to decide what they want to be when they grow up?
    Enrolling in a STEM Education is not a decision to become an engineer or a scientist. But a child who likes science might be more interested in other core lessons if they are presented with ties to science topics. And a child who might think, “I’m not good at science and math,” might discover new joy in these subjects through the hands-on approach of STEM. This programmes is not about having students make a career decision. The programmes is about making learning relevant. As students learn about core content, they will be exposed to how this applies to the “real world.” Who does this type of work? Where is it found? Why is it important?
  • Is STEM education meant only for high ability students?
    No. Students of all learning abilities, including children with disabilities, will benefit from the STEM programmes. Studies show hands-on learning is beneficial to children who have been disengaged (bored) with school. STEM students come from all backgrounds and abilities.
  • What are some future job opportunities predicted for STEM fields?
    We know that our students need to be prepared for jobs that are not yet on the radar. We need to prepare students to be able to compete in a knowledge-based economy. Students need 21st Century skills of adaptability, complex communication, social skills, non-routine problem solving, self-management, self-development, and systems thinking. Our students will be required to be innovative and creative problem solvers, designers, entrepreneurs, developers, and inventors.
  • Which exam will my child sit for after Grade 10?
    Your child will have an option to decide for either the national (Matriculation) or CAIE (O & A Levels)
