School Data

      Discover This School

      At Ulloa Elementary School, we believe that every child can learn and become a life-long learner. We also believe every student has the inherent right to have access to quality programs, essential resources, and the individualized support they need to reach their highest potential. Ulloa is a unique learning environment committed to educating the whole child. In addition to a strong academic program, our dedicated and experienced staff creates a safe and nurturing environment in which students can build the intellectual, emotional and physical skills necessary to become confident, life-long learners. Ulloa is a high-performing school.

      Ulloa teachers also use a variety of teaching methods to help children learn the concepts. We are aware of students' needs and what makes learning fun for them. Our goal is to continue to expand our skills so we may connect with our students on a daily basis. Beyond academic successes, our students excel in poetry writing and in performing arts. Each student is provided with a learning environment in which they may have fun with their friends, actively participate in classroom discussions, feel good about themselves, and show curiosity to extend their learning. For the next two years, we will be expanding our service learning project programs to focus on community service and ecology awareness. We believe these life skills are important parts of our students' education. At Ulloa, we welcome parent and community participation in setting policies and will always base those decisions on what is educationally and fiscally sound for our students. Ulloa students understand the Caring School Community (CSC) program, a tool for self-advocacy to improve in personal responsibility, problem solving, and critical thinking. As we prepare students for future success, we promise our students good memories when they leave Ulloa Elementary School.
