Judith D. Steele Elementary School is an exceptional, suburban school located on the southwest side of the Las Vegas Valley in Nevada. At Steele, we are privileged to work with a diverse student population. One of the most diverse in the state! To meet the needs of our high achieving student population, our staff has developed a strategic and individualized academic plan for all of our students. Our school wide goal is to grow all kids.

Staff members are continually collaborating with grade level teams to discuss best practices for instruction that encourage student discourse, higher order thinking, and problem solving. Staff members at Steele engage in instructional rounds to reflect on educational practices and build capacity for continued professional development. We have developed systems and structures to create a positive environment and to enable our students to meet their individual learning goals.

Steele Elementary has established a positive environment that supports student academic, social and emotional growth and provides equity and access to all students. By focusing on building relationships within the Steele community, each child feels valued and supported as they progress to the next academic level.

Steele is a school where every student that walks through our doors has the opportunity to grow and achieve at high levels, no matter their starting point. Our dedicated staff, caring leadership, and engaged community are committed to academic excellence, student growth, and closing the achievement gap.
