The term dual language refers to a program that provides content instruction to students in both English and Spanish. At Sonoran Sky Elementary, Dual Language teachers construct a program rich in bi-literacy, language acquisition, and high academic standards in a 50/50 delivery model where students receive half day instruction in English and half day instruction in Spanish. The Dual Language Academy provides students with ample exposure to the two languages, one language at a time, allowing them to progress and attain academic excellence in both languages while gaining an appreciation for another culture and developing mastery of grade-level content standards.
The Pendergast Elementary School District is excited to provide students with the opportunity to participate in our Computer Science Academy at Villa de Paz Elementary School. Villa de Paz is a place where innovation, discovery, teamwork, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, leadership, and excellence happens every day! At Villa de Paz, student achievement is our top priority. Students receive state of the art technology through our partnership with Verizon Innovative Learning Schools and Amazon Future Engineering grants. We are a Computer Science Academy that teaches students to break down complex problems into smaller issues, thereby revealing underlying process patterns. Students also learn how to effectively problem solve, how to communicate effectively, and how to collaborate with others. Additionally, we offer opportunities such as eSports, Athletics, Clubs, Art, Music, and PE. Our school also participates in Project FUSE, where students have access to a project-based STEAM environment to foster innovation and creativity in solving real world problems.
The Leadership Academy at Rio Vista Elementary School combines academic excellence and character development to create an exceptional educational experience. The Leader in Me program teaches the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People” to all of our students. Learning and living the 7 Habits empowers children to accept responsibility for their decisions, enables them to set and achieve goals, and brings them to the realization that they are truly in charge of their own lives – that they alone determine their own futures. The expectations of high school and college completion become a natural part of their development as they set their life courses for success.
The Design and Build Academy at Garden Lakes Elementary School inspires students to create a better, more sustainable world by providing hands-on education that integrates design as a creative, interactive process. Today’s students have grown up in an age of “green” choices. Students learn how to apply this concept to the fields of architecture and construction by exploring dimensioning, measuring, and architectural sustainability.
- Create design and construction drawings for commercial and residential buildings
- Create detailed plans using computer-aided design software and three-dimensional modeling simulations to enforce spatial concepts
