Our Vision

University Elementary School at La Fiesta will empower children to become active, curious, creative, and effective thinkers in a perse community of learners. Parents, community members, university students, SSU faculty, local teachers, administrators, and the children themselves will work collaboratively to create an effective, reflective, and joyful learning community.

The program is grounded in three tenets we believe are best for educating children:

Constructivism: Children learn best through active, hands-on, structured learning experiences that reflect their interests and take their developmental needs into account.

Diversity: All children benefit from learning about life around the world, and from working alongside others who are both similar to and different from themselves.

Community: Schools and communities are enhanced when educators, parents, children, and members of the local community work together.
