Points of Pride
North Star Elementary School, located in northeast El Paso, first opened in January 2003. Since its opening, it has been named a Texas Education Agency Exemplary or Recognized School. North Star's most recent recognition is achieving six out of six distinction designations by the Texas Education Agency and being named an "A" campus.
North Star was also recently recognized as a Texas Honor Roll School by Educational Results Partnership (ERP). Our campus was one of thirteen YISD schools recognized for demonstrating high academic achievement as well as for reducing the achievement gaps across various student populations.
