Leadership and STEAM Academies

The leadership academies within MISD’s Power of Choice give elementary and intermediate schools students (grades K-6) the opportunity to have a leadership curriculum built into the instructional schedule. The STEAM academy incorporates critical thinking and learning through cross-curricular science, technology, engineering, art and math activities. Admission into the academies is based upon available space. Transportation will not be provided for these schools if they are outside your designated attendance zone.

Transportation will be provided to all locations (except the leadership and STEAM academies) if a student is accepted into the program.
