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

November 2023

Greetings Hawk Families and Community,

We are moving into one of the busier times of the year with cooler weather, holidays, and ending out the calendar year please be mindful of taking care of yourself and your family. Ensuring those you care about are healthy is of the utmost importance to us all. Should your student not feel well do reach out if they are unable to attend for the day, revisit washing hands and other safety protocols to minimize illness and the spread. We want our Hawk community to be healthy and well!

We are continuing to work on ensuring families are not using the parking lot as a third lane, or parking in non-designated parking areas, as this is unsafe for all. Thank you for those who are ensuring they are following all safe practices for our campus during arrival and dismissal. We are continuing to see improvements with tardies and attendance on campus, and want to thank families for ensuring they are getting their students here on time, prepared, and ready to learn. We are excited to celebrate our winning classes for fewest tardies and lowest attendance with additional opportunities so stay tuned!

The Fall Festival was such a success, and we cannot thank our PTSA, staff, and community enough for such a wonderful event! The support from families for the PTSA event shows the connections we have with our community, and we sincerely thank you all for supporting our students! Additional thanks for supporting not only the candy drive, but the BARK drive to support our furry friends sponsored by our amazing student council and NJHS. We will be getting out information for the holiday canned food drive, Turkey Trot, and the Thanksgiving luncheon so be on the lookout on our socials and via remind.
