Welcome to Estrella Vista STEM Academy
Welcome to Estrella Vista STEM Academy! Estrella Vista is innovative. We prepare our students to be competitive in high school, higher education, and the marketplace. We focus on engineering by using Design-Thinking (DT). Our students collaborate, communicate, create, and think critically to solve real-world problems. We are committed to educating the whole child and provide experiences to support future college and career success. We set the standard in a K–8 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) environment.
Welcome, Estrella Vista STEM Academy families!
We are diligently working to improve school culture. Having the right environment to support student learning is essential. Our goal is to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn in a fair and equitable educational setting. We look forward to collaborating with all stakeholders to foster this expectation.
As a STEM Academy, we believe each child is a treasure with unique gifts, talents, and capabilities. We work collaboratively to discover and nurture those abilities through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We expect all students and staff members to be respectful, dedicated, hardworking, independent thinkers, and problem solvers.
Estrella Vista promotes four core values, which include the following:
- We are a trusted and established community committed to setting high standards in STEM with integrity and fidelity.
- We believe in developing responsible global citizens.
- We strive for every student, staff member, and community member to exhibit the utmost respect in all situations.
- We believe in building a cooperative and positive team environment conducive to the highest level of STEM learning.
We look forward to having you back in person and participating as a school community. Go Hawks!
A Message from Our Principal
Greetings Hawk Families and Community,
I wanted to take an opportunity to share information and updates around items that we have been working on campus wide as our partnerships with our families and community important to us. Our students have been doing a great job with uniform expectations, having badges and lanyards on all day, uniform tops and bottoms and shirts tucked in. Thank you to our students who are meeting these expectations as well as to the families for supporting. You are appreciated!
We are working on improving the flow and safety of our arrival and dismissal process, which is improving daily. Our operations department is supporting us by reviewing our traffic flow and continuing to make recommendations to improve this for our safe. We will be adding a discussion topic around this we will be sending out to families and discussing at upcoming PTSA meetings so stay tuned and be on the lookout.
Attendance and tardies are also improving. We know students who are in class, on time and ready to learn start and end the day better as we are truly better together. We now have a new digital tardy process that has helped us to move quicker with tardies to get our students in class. This also allows the front office to move more efficiently to support families who are needing assistance in the morning.
Below are some upcoming dates to be aware of and opportunities to engage with our campus as we grow and build together. Should you have any questions or need additional information please contact the school at 623-478-6200.
