Ysleta Elementary has a collective commitment to provide an environment where 21st century, global learners achieve/surpass academic expectations, exhibit high character standards and live healthy, active lives. We develop well-rounded young scholars.
Ysleta Elementary School is the flagship school at the Ysleta Independent School District. With over 100 years of rich history, we look forward to a bright and promising future. Our current campus was opened in 1998 and serves a proud community rich with tradition and pride.
Ysleta Elementary serves approximately 500 students, providing an outstanding dual language program and participating in the Raise Your Hand Texas, Raising Blended Learners Pilot Network, where our goal is to personalize learning for every student. Our students in 2nd through 5th grade will have access to 1 to 1 chrome books and our Kinder and 1st grade will have access to 1 device per every 2 students. Students are given the opportunity to set their own academic and non-academic goals then monitor their own progress against those goals. This has proven to be extremely effective as students take ownership and agency over their learning and growth. Our goal is to ensure students move to the next grade level reading at grade level or above. Ysleta Elementary Scholars are positive, motivated and engaged life-long learners. Our school is working to create collaboration spaces through-out our school where students will be able to come together and work collaboratively. Students are able to progress on their learning continuum based on their individual strengths and areas of need. Students are also able to move ahead when mastery is achieved.
We welcome our young scholars to another exciting school year and thank our amazing and loyal community for their commitment and support!
Ysleta Elementary boasts the greatest gains in Science STAAR in YISD (22% gain), thanks to weekly hands-on engaging lab experiences. We also tied for second highest gains in Math STAAR (10% gain).
We currently have partnered with the city of El Paso to have an afterschool program that runs from 2:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Students have the opportunity to work on their homework, participate in activities and enjoy a light dinner.
Ysleta High School works with Ysleta Elementary coaches to provide afterschool sports camps to give our students the opportunity to learn skills in sports they enjoy.
Ysleta Elementary offers students in 5th grade to join either band or orchestra, giving students the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument.
At the end of the school year, our school holds a STEM Expo for K-2nd and 3rd-5th grade students where they are given the opportunity to showcase projects that they have worked on during the school year.
We love to showcase all of our students throughout the school year, but especially during our Christmas program and end of year Talent Showcase. Our goal is to provide avenues for students not only to achieve at high levels academically but, also pursue other talents and interests.
