Welcome to Queen City STEM School!


Queen City STEM School is a tuition-free public charter school focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) in Charlotte, North Carolina. We serve more than 800 students from kindergarten through 11th grade on our two campuses.

QCSS was established in 2015 by a group of public charter school advocates who supported effective, diverse, and well-funded public charter schools in North Carolina. 

We are lifelong learners with big hearts. As our motto “Scientia - Sapientia - Pax” signifies in Latin, we seek knowledge, pursue wisdom, and foster peace in all we do. Our robust academic program and character education develop students' skills to live in harmony with themselves, with others, and with the natural environment.

We are committed to providing exceptional education in a safe, nurturing, and culturally responsive learning environment supported by a strong parent, school, and community partnership.

Queen City STEM is a part of TMSA Public Charter Schools, along with Cary's Triangle Math and Science Academy and Greensboro's Triad Math and Science Academy.
