School Overview

Academy of Aerospace and Engineering Elementary School helps students develop a strong foundational knowledge in four interrelated domains of STEM literacy: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The STEM theme ignites their curiosity and encourages students to explore and collaborate through hands-on learning experiences. Technology supports and enhances the curriculum, which provides students with meaningful opportunities to conduct investigations, gather and use information, and solve problems using scientific methods of thinking and technology as tools. These experiences help build their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

*Students enrolled in grade 5 may automatically enroll at the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering for grade 6 without submitting a RSCO application.

School Report Card – the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has prepared this report, which includes information about student enrollment, student achievement, student and teacher diversity, and much more.
