        Sageland MicroSociety Elementary School is the only school in the El Paso area to provide a fully integrated MicroSociety curriculum that maximizes staff, faculty, student, parental, and community participation. Setting foot on our campus reveals a warm, caring, unconventional child-centered world unlike any you have ever experienced before. As you walk our halls, you will notice the colorful teacher-created murals that display student work and entice you into their classrooms, where a friendly, cooperative, and safe environment encourages students to be risk-takes who take responsibility for their learning by working in centers or choosing from a daily menu of activities. Beyond the traditional classroom setting, you will find an array of learning opportunities that are molded ethically, responsible, problem-solvers, empowered to meet the challenges of the new millennium! 

        In 1990, Sageland began its journey from a traditional school to a 2lst century learning organization. The journey began with the physical transformation of the building, which continues to this day. The following year began the ultimate challenge of internalizing the conviction that all children can and will learn. This led to the embracing of the Accelerated Schools philosophy. In 1992, Sageland received a grant for $192,00 to build a 3,500 square feet site to establish a schoolwide MicroSociety program. This catapulted us to becoming entrepreneurs in the field of education where our journey's course was forever altered. Therefore, we are committed to providing innovative, powerful learning experiences to encourage our children into the new millennium. 

        Today, Sageland MicroSociety Elementary School is a nonconventional school-wide learning site where students and teachers, along with parents, community members, and school staff create learning experiences that reflect the American democratic free enterprise system. All students in Grades PreK-Grade 5 provide services, produce goods, elect venture and agency officers, make and enforce laws, and collect and distribute taxes. While running and operating businesses and governmental agencies, students pay rent and operate businesses by creating their own unique business plans. Micro Bucks are used to pay for attendance and various jobs. After paying taxes, rent, and operating costs, students take on the role of the main consumers in the MicroSociety marketplace on their days off. We offer a variety of after-school programs, such as Robotics, Esports, UIL, Intramurals, etc. 

        Vision Statement:  Sageland MicroSociety Elementary will aspire to be a global community of critical thinkers and problem solvers, in which every citizen will contribute to creating a culture of kindness, resilience, and academic excellence.

        La Primaria Sageland MicroSociety aspirará a ser una comunidad global de pensadores críticos y solucionadores de problemas, en la que cada ciudadano contribuirá a crear una cultura de amabilidad, resiliencia y excelencia académica.

        Scottie Pledge:  I am somebody. I was somebody when I came. I will be a better somebody when I leave. I am powerful and I am strong. I deserve the education that I get here. I have things to do, people to impress, and places to go!
