Olmito Elementary School: A place where opportunities become experiences!

Olmito Elementary is one of fourteen schools in the Los Fresnos CISD, located in deep South Texas near the Mexico border. Our academic programs incorporate best practices to help students develop confidence to surpass their individual goals. With an enrollment of over six hundred, our diverse learners are taught with the same intensity, expectation, and core curriculum. Our students are expected to master new content and skills aligned with state standards through the application of prior knowledge, differentiated instruction, and cross-content implementation. Our school mission is to “provide students a safe environment where different learning styles will be nurtured in order to teach them to think critically, work independently, participate collaboratively, communicate effectively, and act with integrity to become successful members of society.” Olmito’s culture of high expectations and academic rigor help fulfill the goals of our mission and the development of a well-rounded child. Our dedicated staff offer eighteen different students clubs that help support the whole child philosophy by increasing self-confidence, developing students physically and/or socially, and building leadership skills. With commitment to the traditions of our campus, all stakeholders work collaboratively to maintain a shared vision of academic and social excellence.
