Inman Intermediate School is moving “Full STEAM Ahead” with the goal to have a school where students and teachers infuse Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics into everyday learning experiences. Inman Intermediate School is a true neighborhood school serving 308 students in grades 4, 5, and 6. 65% of students receive free or reduced lunch, and Arts in the Basic Curriculum grant money as well as being honored as a Distinguished Arts Program, allows Inman Intermediate to give many students arts experiences they would not otherwise have. Many students who are classified as “at risk” learners are the “shining stars” during artist in residence experiences. Teachers work closely with each artist to plan and implement relevant content rich experiences that incorporate the arts and students love working with guest artists! Additionally, Inman Intermediate continues monthly clubs, many of which are arts infused, such as the Shag Club, Origami Club, and Photography Club. Inman Intermediate is proud of how far it has come while also recognizing that there is still much work to be done. Faculty members study the standards for the arts and teachers are expected to implement these standards as they plan lessons in science, social studies, math, and language arts. Several events this year have highlighted this teamwork among all IIS faculty. Inman Intermediate will continue to pursue arts infusion through continued professional development, school visits, and artists in residence. The school realizes it is at the beginning of a journey, and is excited about what the future holds for the school and community as they infuse the arts into all areas of the curriculum and be an advocate for arts education!
