School Mission

The members of Estrella Elementary School are actualizing a comprehensive approach to learning that is firmly founded in research- based methods, with particular focus on those expounded on by Arthur Costa: Cognitive Coaching: A Foundation for Renaissance Schools, Learning and Leading with Habits of Mind; Robert Garmston: Adaptive Schools, and “Response to Instruction and Intervention” (RTI2). We are dedicated to building this school together based on the foundation of understanding, valuing, and making commitments to the Constructivist Principles of Learning throughout the school culture and curriculum. We see our students and their potential through the lens of Academic Optimism: emphasizing a strong academic focus and a nurturing faculty who trust in the students and their families; thus establishing collective efficacy.
