TSTEM Designation

Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers. T-STEM Academies are demonstration schools and learning labs that develop innovative methods to improve science and mathematics instructions.


Energized for STEM Academy, Incorporated was founded by Mrs. Lois Bullock on the premise that it is the right of every student, regardless of their economic background, to have equal opportunity and equal access to a high-quality education. The school offers a solid STEM-based educational foundation to enable students to successfully compete in the global workforce.
