Message from Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,


My name is Murat Atakov and I am so excited to introduce myself as a new principal of the SST Spring. I am honored to have been selected as a Founder Principal of SST Spring. I have worked as a Founder Administrator (Assistant Principal) for two new SST campuses. Over the past 11 years, I had a chance to gain different experiences in EC-12 education system as a teacher, coordinator, department chair, coach, and administrator. Being an Educator was my dream job and I have always enjoyed working with kids, teachers, parents, and community.


I am a father of 4 children. I understand what parenting means. I also believe that we, as parents, send our best and loved ones to schools. I appreciate your trust for your kids. We will take care of your children like our own kids. This is my Educational Philosophy: I believe that a school is a setting where students feel safe and excited to learn, the staff is happy and dedicated, parents are pleased and supportive, and students grow academically, socially-emotionally, physically and they will be ready for future. As a team, we will make SST Spring a great school where students would like to attend, people would like to work, and parents and community would be welcomed.


I would like to give some information about SST Schools, as well. The School of Science and Technology (SST) is an " A-rated district" (top rating based on TEA's A-F accountability system), award-winning, tuition-free, a public charter school district that offers a specialized curriculum focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in order to prepare future generations for our ever-evolving world. For more information, please visit the sstschools.org website. The School of Science and Technology opened its first campus located at Loop 410 and Nacogdoches in the fall of 2005. Currently, SST schools serve a community with 10 schools in San Antonio, Houston, and Corpus Christi. The SST Spring will be a great addition to our district. Currently, we are very busy with hiring the best teachers for our school.


Once again, I am so thankful to have an opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to your wonderful community. I look forward to getting to know you and your children. I will be working most days this summer to ensure that we will be ready to open our school doors for you all in August. Currently, our school is under construction. We use SST Excellence campus during this summer at 330 N Sam Houston Pkwy E, Houston, TX 77060. Please, stop by to say hello. Time to time, we will send updates about our school.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Warm Regards,

Murat Atakov
