PARENT MEETINGS SCHEDULED FOR 2021-22 STEAM ACADEMY ENROLLMENT

March 1, 2021

STEAM Academy at Mambrino

Granbury ISD has scheduled four parent meetings in March 2021 to meet with parents about enrollment opportunities at the STEAM Academy at Mambrino for the 2021-22 school year. 

In 2018, Mambrino School became a school-wide STEAM Academy for grades PK-5 and accepted student transfers from other GISD campuses as well as from outside the district. 

The academy focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, the arts, and Mathematics.  There is daily implementation of the inquiry design process, utilization of specialized curricula (including Project Lead The Way – which is currently used in Granbury High School engineering courses as well as introductory classes at Acton Middle School and Granbury Middle School), and extensive teacher training, according to principal Stacie Brown. 

Student transfer applications must meet current district criteria regarding attendance and discipline. For students who will be in grades 1-5 next school year, the application deadline will be Saturday, April 3.  For incoming kindergarteners, Roundup will be held at GISD elementary schools on Monday, May 24 from 8:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M., and those applications will be due on Friday, May 28. 

Mambrino staff and others will present information on the academy at four informational meetings.  Parents are welcome to attend the meeting that best fits their schedule. 

  • Thursday, March 4 – Via Zoom, 5:30 P.M.
  • Monday, March 15 – Via Zoom, 5:30 P.M.
