Points of Pride
Welcome to the Mesa Vista Leopard family!
Mesa Vista Elementary School is a small gem located in El Paso's lower valley that has been open for 50 years. Since excellence is our priority, our students are held to high standards. We are known for our consistency in following the 3 B's: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. We are proud to be in the Bel Air feeder pattern, as our students will continue to be future Warriors at the new Bel Air Middle School and Highlanders at Bel Air High School.
We are the proud recipients of several distinctions. In 2015, we received Academic Achievement distinction in Reading. In 2016, we received Academic Achievement in Science and Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps distinctions, proving that we believe all students can learn.
The Ysleta Independent School District's recent Engage Me! initiative has provided all of our 3rd-6th grade students a chromebook that will be used to provided extended learning for our students, helping to prepare them with essential 21st century skills. Our teachers are using Google apps, like Google Classroom, to engage our learners, encourage collaboration, and enhance their critical thinking.
We are the first school to have an annual PBIS Behavior Bowl (held in January) and PBIS March Madness (held in March) competitions. These competitions consist of students competing within their grade levels and the winning teams get a chance to represent their grade level in the final event, while the entire school cheers them on. All students who participate must show their consistency in following the three B's throughout the year.
