Points of Pride
Our SchoolCapistrano Elementary School is a place where students thrive academically, grow as readers, and excel in extracurricular activities. Capistrano is very proud of receiving the STEAM Designation by the District. We are the first elementary school to receive this honor and we are extremely proud. S.T.E.A.M. stands for an integrated approach to learning and teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
STEAM campusOur steam initiative includes students participating in at least three modules developed around our STEAM initiative. During this part of the school day, students utilize the Engineering design process to create solutions to real world issues. Our focus on the arts (visual, social, language, physical) will be integrated into our daily instruction and specialized fine arts classes.
Blended Learning DistinctionBeginining with the 2017-2018 school year, Capistrano Elementary School was awarded a grant for training to implement Blended Learning. Our fourth grade classes are focused on the YISD blended learning design pillars. As we build this personalized learning approach, students are immersed in the environment where they take ownership for their learning based on their achievement data.
