MST Magnet Elementary
Week of April 12th
Our theme for the 2015-2016 school year is MST Version 2.0: Uploading Excellence for 20 Years. This year marks our 20th anniversary! MST Magnet Elementary opened in 1995 at the Arapaho building and moved to the present location in 2005 after Richardson Junior High School was closed and repurposed. MST has built a legacy of innovation, creativity, and dedication to student learning that is immeasurable. It is through our partnership with our parents and community towards the devotion to student achievement and our genuine love for MST, that teach year has brought continued success.
MST School Performance Recognized!
The national nonprofit Educational Results Partnership recently announced its 2015 Honor Roll schools based on student academic performance. MST Magnet was named Star Honor Roll Schools as high performance campuses with higher-poverty enrollments that have closed achievement gaps among different student groups. MST was also named a STEM Honor Roll School for student performance in Math & Science.
