Spring Lake Heights Elementary School was one of a dozen shore-acre schools to receive grants that will help develop dream classrooms.

Spring Lake Heights Elementary received a $10,000 grant to create a model classroom, the HEAT lab (Heights Engineering and Technology Lab) in late 2014. The classroom will be used in the implementation of the district’s iSTEM – integrative STEM – curriculum. John Henry, the NJSBA STEM and sustainable schools specialist, has been assisting the district as it promotes active engagement in learning and applying STEM concepts.

The grant was awarded by the Ocean First Foundation of Toms River. Other public schools receiving grants to develop “unique and creative classrooms” included Brielle Elementary School; Clara B. Worth Elementary School (Berkeley Township); Eagleswood Elementary School; Elms Elementary School (Jackson); Manalapan High School; Manasquan High School; Manchester Township Middle School; Matawan Regional High School; New Egypt Middle School; Osbornville Elementary School (Brick); Point Pleasant Borough High School; and Walnut Street Elementary School (Toms River).
