    Vision Statement

    Garcia Elementary provides an academically and behaviorally rigorous environment with a focus on core math and literacy instruction for the children of North Houston. We provide an intense focus on literacy skills to ensure that each of our students is reading on grade level by the end of second grade. Our intensive core literacy instruction then allows us to meet the individual needs of every Garcia student in the other core content areas.

    We believe that to truly prepare each child for the rigors of middle school, high school, and college we must provide them with a joyful and demanding work environment. At Garcia Elementary all students are held accountable for class work, homework, mastery of learning objectives, and behavioral expectations on a daily basis.

    Aristotle said that "we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act but a habit." Students at Garcia Elementary are provided with excellence and taught to have excellence in all they do. This constant pursuit of excellence lives within a culture of mutual respect and drives everything in our school community

    Campus Goal

    In order to ensure all our students become life-long learners, our campus goal is for every student to read at or above grade level by the end of 2nd grade.
