Who We Are

Our History

Dr. Turgay Korkmaz, a computer science professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio, found that many students entering the university were not adequately prepared for entry-level science and mathematics courses. To address this concern and better prepare students for the future, others joined him to establish the first School of Science and Technology in San Antonio in the fall of 2005.

Our Growth

Since opening our first campus, The School of Science and Technology has opened six schools in three major Texas cities. During the 2019-2020 school year, SST opened four new campuses in San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and Houston. Additionally, SST Corpus Christi (elementary), SST Sugar Land, SST Northwest, and SST Spring moved into modern, spacious buildings to better serve our students.

Our Future

After a decade of consistent high performance in all schools, the School of Science and Technology will move to establish more schools to serve more underserved children. As SST grows, we are dedicated to establishing campuses in modern, state-of-the-art facilities. For more news on the future of SST, read the latest Letter from the Superintendent.
