School Description

1. Inquiry-based instruction, which engages students in open-ended, student-centered, hands-on activities, which support the acquisition and mastery of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.

2. Community based learning, where students, parents and teachers partner with community members to create connections between the classroom and real-world situations.

3. A mixed-age reading component, in which students receive instruction based upon individual needs in flexible, mixed-age groups.

Fifth grade was added in 2008-09. Long-range plans include adding grades 6th through 8th to ensure continuity and quality education for students of La Academia de Estrellas.
