stemMarshall ISD opened its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Academy at South Marshall Elementary School in the fall of 2014. The program has since expanded to include students at both middle schools (grades 5-6), with implementation of the program expanding each year until the district has a full-fledged K-12 STEM program.

The vision of the Marshall ISD Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academy at South Marshall Elementary is to be a leader in STEM education, preparing and inspiring generations of diverse learners to meet the challenges of the global society through innovation, collaboration and creative problem solving.

What is STEM? For years, federal and state education leaders have been working on strengthening and improving our students' skills in science, technology, engineering and math. In order for U.S. students to compete in a 21st Century global workforce, they must be skilled in these areas.

STEM has become a focus area for our educational programs. The purpose of STEM is to increase student inquiry and curiosity through engagement, higher level questioning, self-reflection and openness to new ideas, and respect for evidence characterized through scientific inquiry. The goals of a STEM program are to increase proficiency of all students in STEM and increase the number of students capable of pursing a STEM career.



As a result of the $109,200,000 bond issue approved by Marshall ISD voters in May 2015, the Legacy 2017 building program will produce three new elementary schools for students in grades K-5; a renovated K-5 STEM Academy at what is now Sam Houston Middle School; and a new Marshall Junior High School in time to open for the 2017-2018 school year.

As part of the MISD "Legacy 2017" building program, construction is now underway for the new K-5, approximately 83,000-square foot facility which will have a capacity to serve 750 students. Specifically for South Marshall STEM Academy, all STEM students in K-5 in the district will attend a renovated Sam Houston which will become MISD's new STEM campus. The current facility at South Marshall will be used for possible community partnerships, re-purposed for other district use, sold, rented or demolished.

Groundbreaking for the new elementary school was held on May 20, 2016. Substantial completion of the facilities are expected by the end of the 2016-2017 school year, with the school targeted for opening in time for the first day of school for the 2017 school year.


Huckabee, Inc., serves as the architect for the Legacy 2017 building program. Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, focuses all of its resources on K-12 public schools. The firm’s footprint in East Texas is a large one, having completed over $330 million in school construction projects within a 50-mile radius of Marshall including projects in Longview ISD, Kilgore ISD, Sabine ISD and Gladewater ISD over the last five years.


Project Manager for the MISD Legacy 2017 building program is Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) out of Houston, Texas. The company’s most recent experience with bond program management includes projects in Brazosport ISD, Brenham ISD, Goose Creek Consolidated ISD, Port Neches-Groves ISD and Rockdale ISD.
