Tatanka Elementary STEM School - Engineering Our Future!
Tatanka Elementary STEM School (TESS) is a magnet school with a specialized curriculum that helps students become thinkers and problem solvers. Here, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics concepts are integrated into classroom lessons. Through these experiences, students Collaborate, Communicate, Think Critically, and use Creativity to develop a deeper understanding of all the STEM components. We build upon children's natural curiosity to help them research questions, investigate problems, and develop answers using STEM concepts. This active, "minds on" approach prepares students with the skills they need to be successful in the 21st century. Tatanka serves approximately 530 students in grades K-5. TESS is a neighborhood school and a school of choice, as part of the Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD).
