At Farnsworth – "The Home of Future Leaders" – our aerospace focus is infused in every aspect of our curriculum. It engages imagination and encourages experimentation. Our students work on teams to solve complex problems, and each success builds confidence for the next challenge. Every student in grades 5 - 8 participates in aerospace and engineering classes and has the opportunity to fly in the flight simulator lab. Other classes at Farnsworth include a renowned marching band and string orchestra. Farnsworth students learn from experts and speakers and have many opportunities for field trips that expand learning outside the school walls. Families are encouraged to learn together through aerospace and engineering family nights and events.
