About Us

Our Mission

Strong 21st Century Communications Magnet and SCSU Lab School strives to develop an understanding of the history and impact of communications and how it has changed the world.  With a rigorous STEM infused curriculum and a project based learning approach, we will prepare students to utilize digital media, global technologies, and other languages to communicate effectively in an evolving world.


Our Vision

To empower 21st Century learners by giving them the communication, academic, and social skills necessary to succeed in a technologically advancing world.


Our Curriculum

At Strong 21st Century Communications Magnet and SCSU Lab School we have a communications and literacy focused approach with four school wide themes: Communications Inventions and Ideas, How We Communicate, How Communications Has Changed the World, and The Future of Communications.  All units are fully integrated into the curriculum to develop students into expert communicators.  Our STEM Discovery Lab provides hands-on learning experiences to enhance the study of science, technology, engineering, and math.  The Discovery Lab incorporates the Engineering is Elementary and LEGO Education curricula.  Students also have multiple language offerings including American Sign Language and Chinese or French allowing them to be world-wise, culturally-aware learners and community members.  Finally, through our unique partnership with Southern Connecticut State University as a Lab School, students receive support from future educators in a dynamic learning environment and make a difference by inspiring and developing the next generation of teachers.
