The international STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) movement is at the core of the 21st century skill set, encouraging students to understand that no body of knowledge exists in isolation. The Maglio Family STEM center will promote an integrated curriculum where these four important subject areas are presented in conjunction with each other. Already a focus for students in every grade level, STEM teaching strategies will have room to grow in an inquiry-based, collaborative, laboratory setting. The Berlin Family Foundation, led by grandparents Bill and Madeline Maglio, have contributed $2.5 million to begin making this truly one-of-a-kind facility a reality for students on our Lower/Middle School campus.

The Maglio Family STEM Center will provide the space and tools necessary to meet the needs of our constantly expanding curriculum.
A premier PK3 - Grade 12 independent, coeducational day school with campuses in North Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens. Since 1960, The Benjamin School has provided a challenging college preparatory education to a diverse student body in a structured, nurturing community environment.
