Executive Summary


2017-2018 school year begins
Rachel Freeman School of Engineering’stwelvth year as an elementary
magnet school with
an engineering focus.
Rachel Freeman School of Engineering is currently one of three elementary
engineering magnet schools in North Carolina.

Rachel Freeman School of Engineering participates
 in the PBIS program an effective and proactive process for
improvin social competence and academic achievement
for all students.

 The STEM curriculum focuses on a five-step
Engineering Design Process:
Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, and Improve. 
The goal is to show that engineers follow the same
step-by-step approach to solving diverse problems.

The Engineering is Elementary (EiE)
curriculum is designed to partner lessons in engineering
with the science curriculum which is already a part of
Rachel Freeman School of Engineering‘s Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curriculum.

We are expanding our engineering program this year with a
STEM lab.  Students will rotate through the lab to build on
science, social studies, and literacy skills through practical activities tied to engineering.

Lego Mindstorms
Engineering Challenge
Each year, 5th grade students design automated robots and program those  vehicles to go through an obstacle course.
Their goal is to ask, magine, plan, create, improve their
design, and test their vehicle with assistance from their GE engineer “consultant”. Teams then c mpete
within their class and the entire grade
level for the championship.

New Hanover County Schools Mission
The mission of New Hanover County Schools, in collaboration with our parents and the community, is to strive to provide children with an opportunity for a
superior education in a safe and positive learning environment where they are prepared with the skills to succeed.
