We believe a strong educational foundation is the key to success for all students. In order for learning to occur, the school environment must be safe and nurturing. All students do not learn in the same way or at the same rate, nor do they all start at the same place. Therefore, instruction must be tailored to the needs of the students, and should provide opportunities that take the learner beyond the classroom walls. Furthermore, students need to play an active role in their own learning, participating willingly in a risk-free environment, guided by nurturing, knowledgeable and effective teachers.

la Academia de Estrellas is located in Dallas, TX and is in La Academia De Estrellas School District. It is a charter school that serves 602 students in grades PK-5.
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.
