WABE | Georgia now has its first STEAM school, and it's right here in metro Atlanta, at Henderson Mill Elementary in DeKalb County.
The school meets science, technology, engineering and math requirements for STEM certification and is the first school to officially add the arts to that mix.
STEAM certification is just one way state Superintendent of Schools Richard Woods has been trying to expose more students to classes like choir and theater. Last month he won an award from the National Art Education Association.
