Fight 4 Morehead STEM Academy

This petition had 652 supporters


Thank you to those that were able to attend the CMS Student Assignment Review-Phase II information meeting that was held May 1, 2017.  It was great to see so many faces in support of Morehead STEM Academy but we need to do more to have our voices and concerns heard by the School Board so they will vote against this proposal. 

The Charlotte Mecklenburg School Board is proposing to make drastic changes to Morehead STEM Academy as we know it today starting school year 2018-2019.  What will this look like?  Morehead will be dissolved as the community of family, caring and learning that we have come to love.   It will no longer be a FULL STEM magnet school. 

  • Students in grades K-2 will attend Nathaniel Alexander.  This will consist of students that are zoned for that school and students that are chosen in the lottery for the STEM magnet program.
  • Students in grades 3-5 will attend Morehead continuing in STEM.  This will consist of students that are zoned for that school and students that are chosen in the lottery for the STEM magnet program.
  • Students in grades 6-8 will attend James Martin Middle continuing in STEM.  This will consist of students that are zoned for that school and students that are chosen in the lottery for the STEM magnet program.


Our children have thrived in a STEM program that is WORKING!!!!   Our children are exposed to opportunities to explore STEM in all facets of everyday life.  They are given hands on and minds on lessons that engage them in problem solving skills and help them become creative critical thinkers.  This exposure will help our children develop a passion for STEM.  We are shaping the leaders of our future!  We have been named a School of Distinction for 2 years straight, let’s keep that momentum going.

Please take the time to email/call and voice your concerns to our School Board members.   We need to flood their inboxes and voicemails with Morehead parent concerns and support for our school.  These are people that we voted into office and at this point in time it seems that they don’t have the best interest of our children at heart.  Just as we voted these members in we can vote them out.  The proposal vote will take place May 24, 2017 let your voice be heard!  Let’s make our school board members work for us!
