Southside ISD is providing our students with the best opportunities. Beginning in the Fall of 2021, all Southside ISD campuses will have STEAM Academies. STEAM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, will begin in elementary and continue on through middle school and high school. An example of the STEAM classes include:

  • Ag Science
  • Forensics
  • Health Sciences
  • Information Technology
  • Web Design
  • E-sports
  • Coding
  • Robotics
  • Makerspaces
  • Fine Arts
  • Folklorico
  • Mariachi
  • Chess

Research shows that students involved in STEAM classes have improved academic success. That’s because STEAM teaches problem-solving and computational thinking across content. Prepares students for advanced courses in high school. Readies our students for post-secondary college and careers. Students are able to earn certifications in many different fields before they graduate. It will provide students with the skills needed to be competitive in our global society. Students will automatically be enrolled in STEAM once they’re registered in the District. If you wish for your child to participate, please contact their campus counselor.
