Galarza Elementary School

From SJUSD Web Site:
Ernesto Galarza Elementary School provides a safe, positive and nurturing environment. Our K-5 curriculum is guided by State academic standards to ensure that all students achieve their greatest potential. As active participants in their education, students experience the joy of learning and the satisfaction of developing into responsible, contributing members of society. Our Academic Language Acquisition (ALA) program is designed to meet the needs of English language learners whose primary language is Spanish by providing Spanish language instruction in K-3rd grade. English Language Development (ELD) is also a vital piece of the ALA program. We implement state adopted programs, such as Houghton Mifflin Reading in English and Spanish, Scott Forest in math, Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Math, Larson’s Math, and Step Up To Writing in both English and in Spanish. Additional programs include SPORTS for Kids, Art Vistas, PeaceBuilders, Cornerstone, ABC parents and Los Dichos, plus SPARK PE.
