Points of Pride

  • Alicia R. Chacon opened its doors in 1995. It began as a dual language program for kinder to 2nd grade. It gradually added grade levels until reaching its current kinder through 8th enrollment.

    Our students are taught an enriched curriculum, which includes learning English, Spanish and either Chinese, German, Japanese or Russian. Our goal is to ensure students learn to appreciate and respect other languages, cultures and all ethnic groups. As part of our third language program, students participate in Kung-Fu, Gymnastics, Karate or Tennis. Our students are given the opportunity to travel to China, Germany, Japan and Russia, depending on their language of instruction. Our school maintains a positive relationship with our sister schools in Germany and Russia. We sponsor a student exchange program with our sister schools on alternating years.

    Alicia R. Chacon’s Fine Arts program offers Band, Choir, Dance and Orchestra Classes.

    Students participate in sports programs with our neighbor Ysleta Middle School.

    This year, we are implementing a STEM component to middle school elective courses through Project Lead the Way (PLTW).  Students with exceptional math and science scores have been selected to take Design and Modeling (6th and 8th grade) and Automation and Robotics (6th and 7th grade) courses.

    As our students graduate from 8th grade, they are highly recruited by all YISD high schools, as well as other area districts. Alicia R. Chacon takes pride in being a nationally known Dual Language School with deep roots in the Ysleta Independent School District.
