Our students experience the BioSMART curriculum – the premier biosciences program in the district – that integrates
technology in every subject area. Several leading companies partner with Wellstone to prepare students for high school,
college and career in the areas of Bio Medical and Health Sciences, Bio Business and Marketing, and Bio Engineering and
Technology. A well-equipped science lab and a welcoming, colorful library inspire students to find joy in learning and think
critically. Our students love “Science Fridays” − a full day of science projects that build understanding of science concepts.
