Vega Elementary School has high academic standards and exemplifies excellence in the community, in the school, and most importantly in the classroom. We are a farming, ranching, and wind energy community located in the Panhandle of Texas on Route 66. Vega is a great place to live, and it is evident when you see 4th generation children attending our school just as their great grandparents did. The generational tradition and family ties to this school conveys high academic expectations and high parent and community involvement.

Our educational philosophy at Vega Elementary School is based on the belief that students are the center of our school. We take a holistic approach toward educating our students. We are a learning community, working together to provide an environment that meets the individual needs of all students and ensures them life-long success as productive members of society. Our K-6 students receive instruction in core subjects as well as attend classes in art, music/band, physical education, technology, and guidance. Children have different interests and learning styles and because they progress at different rates, we provide an educational program that is tailored to the talents and needs of each child while maintaining high standards of accountability. Our students serve our community and citizens in many ways such as Christmas caroling around town, collecting food for the local food pantry, or honoring our veterans with a music program.

We expect good behavior choices, utilize student role models, and promote excellence with a well-rounded education. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved in and supportive of our studentsí learning.
