There is an increasing need in Florida and throughout the country, to ensure students have the future ready skills to compete in a globally competitive economy and meet the needs of the workplace. The future of the economy is in STEM related careers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that employment in STEM occupations are projected to grow more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022. 


The mission of Sanford Middle School Math, Science, & Technology Magnet is to develop a more widely and diversely populated pipeline of students, with future ready skills, interested in STEM careers in an innovative, safe, and supportive learning environment. Where every student can think critically, and connect and apply STEM principles in order to solve real-world problems, through rigorous and relevant learning experiences across all disciplines.
