Points of Pride
Welcome to Mesa Vista Elementary School, Home of the Leopards!
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're #oneRED!
Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS)
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. These special Mesa Vista traditions, encourage our students to stay focused and allows them their time to shine throughout the year.
As part of our Engage Me initiative, all of our 3rd through 6th-grade students are issued a Chromebook while our Kinder through 2nd grade has access to iPads and iMacs 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. In addition to these Google apps, our students have access to various personalized educational programs and applications focused on literacy, math, and science.
Our Leopards have the opportunity to continue learning after the school day. These clubs are meant to encourage our Leopards to be well-rounded students and spark their interest in different hobbies. Our Mesa Vista Cheerleaders are the spirit leaders on campus and participate in most of the school-wide events and Bel Air area activities. Leopards 1.0, our VEX Robotics Club, builds and codes robots to compete in district competitions. The Student Council Club teaches our students about student government and civil service. The Mesa Vista Art Club Club allows our students to find and express their creativity.
