MC2STEM High School arrives on CSU campus

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson joined officials from Cleveland State University, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and the KeyBank Foundation to celebrate the grand opening of Cleveland’s MC2STEM High School on November 18 in Rhodes Tower West on the CSU campus.

The ribbon was cut with a laser – a fitting touch for a school that specializes in science, technology, engineering and math.

Also on hand to officially welcome MC2STEM students to CSU was NASA astronaut Stephanie Wilson, the second African-American female to travel into space.

“If you strive for excellence in all that you do, you will be well on your way to achieving your dream,” Wilson told students.

The KeyBank Classrooms for STEM Education are home to 140 MC2STEM juniors and seniors. Built with a $1.25 million donation from the KeyBank Foundation, the facilities include renovated classrooms and a state-of-the-art fabrication laboratory where students use the latest technology to create three-dimensional objects based on their own designs.

CSU, which is ranked by the National Science Foundation among the top 200 universities in the United States for research and development, is an ideal setting for the academically rigorous high school’s upperclassmen, said MC2STEM Principal Jeff McClellan.

“Ultimately, our students want to go to college, so they’re very excited about being on the CSU campus,” McClellan said.
