What's Being Said About Estrella Vista STEM Academy

When we asked community members and other school administrators, "What did you notice about Estrella Vista STEM Academy?” Their responses were: 

  • There is evidence of collaboration between teachers, teacher candidates, and substitutes (tele-presence rooms).
  • I saw teachers checking student work as the students had independent practice.
  • Students were excited to be at school. There is a great use of technology.
  • This is a great environment. Kids want to be here. A student was wearing a crown with the objective stated on it.
  • Teachers had objectives for morning routines in the elementary classes — great for structure.
  • When kids see Mr. Ramos in the hallways, their eyes light up. We can see they love their principal.
  • Happy students! Students love the staff! There is two-way respect!
  • Students wished us good morning sincerely.
  • I saw students learning about shapes in art, using pictures, and discussion.

When we asked school administrators, "What would you like to take back and implement on your own campus?" Their responses were as follows: 

  • Agenda usage and communication of the objective.
  • I would have discussions of an issue that happened in PE in the safe environment of the self-contained classroom.
  • They would implement daily math skills for 4th and 5th grades to enhance number talks.
  • High paced phonemic awareness instruction with full student engagement.
  • Objectives for morning routines.
  • They have a lot of walls with alive and vibrant information. The teacher wrote on each students’ desk. I saw a note that said, “You make my heart happy!”
  • Amazing learning circles.
  • I like agendas out in the upper grades really being used.
  • I would like to see students being able to describe what they learned.

Estrella Vista STEM Academy students, staff, and community continues to work together to make EV a great place to learn and grow!
