We are a K-8 STEM school located on Cleveland's east side.

Imagine a school where on any given day the community becomes your learning space. Imagine a school where scholars identify a problem and use their creativity and knowledge to design a solution.  

That’s Michael R. White STEM: a place of Hands on Learning.
Located near the Cleveland Cultural Gardens and University Circle, Michael R. White is a K-8 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) school. We provide scholars with many educational opportunities that expand beyond the classroom. Science, technology, engineering and math are incorporated into every subject. All scholars are exposed to a hands-on, trans-disciplinary curriculum that helps scholars develop the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century.  

Technology is an important component in our school.

Scholars have daily interaction with technology starting in kindergarten. All 8th grade scholars have access to laptop computers and conduct research daily. Scholars are taught to use the design process to problem solve and create capstone projects. Scholars attending Michael R. White STEM use these problem-solving skills to assist with everyday situations and challenges.
In addition we offer art, music, gym and computer classes to all scholars in grades K-8.

Principal's Message

Dear Scholars, Parents/Guardians and the Michael R. White STEM Family,


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Michael R. White STEM. I am again thrilled to be the leader of such a wonderful school community. This is an exciting time to be at Michael R. White STEM. Our theme this year “EXCELLENCE THROUGH INNOVATION". In order to achieve our theme, we must maintain high expectations for ourselves and others, let go of attitudes and behaviors that hamper us from accomplishing our goals and press forward toward the mark of EXCELLENCE.

As your principal, it is my responsibility to provide a safe, nurturing environment of mindful active scholars, where all are valued and appreciated for what they can bring to the classroom, school and community. This atmosphere will focus on the highest potential of each scholar and will foster an enthusiasm for life-long learning. In order for this to become a reality, we need your help. Parent involvement is a very important aspect of every child’s education and is the primary factor in a scholar’s success in school. We encourage you to become a part of this exciting year at Michael R. White STEM!

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math will play a vital role in our scholar’s academic success this school year. There are several student computers located in every classroom including the library. It is my goal to bring additional resources to afford our scholars the ability to convey concepts in new ways that otherwise might not be possible.

Michael R. White STEM is a Dress Code SchoolDRESS CODE WILL BE MONITORED AND RECORDED DAILY. Parents will be notified immediately if their child(ren) come to school out of uniform. Scholars who do not wear proper dress code will receive consequences for failing to adhere to the school’s culture.

In closing, I once again want to welcome you as we continue this journey to an excellent, exciting, successful and productive school year at Michael R. White STEM.
