STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

Using STEAM education results in students who:

  • Take thoughtful risks
  • Engage in experiential learning
  • Persist in problem-solving
  • Embrace collaboration
  • Work through the creative process

For the 2023-2024 school year, we will be embarking on our new coding initiative for K-6 grades during our S.T.E.A.M. block.

Sixth Grade at Glen City

We are excited to keep our fifth grade students for another year! In fact, a study led by Duke University found that:

  • Elementary 6th-graders had fewer behavior issues than their middle school counterparts.
  • Test scores of 6th graders in elementary schools were higher than those of 6th graders in middle schools.


The Santa Paula Unified School District is proud to offer a Spanish Dual Language Immersion Program (DLI) here at Glen City Global.

Our DLI program promotes bilingualism and biliteracy, grade-level academic achievement, and cross-cultural competency.

DLI teachers will use California standards-aligned core curriculum with instruction delivered 90% of the day in Spanish and 10% in English. This language allocation gradually shifts until 50% of the school day is spent in each language by the end of 5th grade.
