We are excited to be able to offer such an extensive exposure of global studies. Through global studies, we believe we can help students become responsible members of local, national, and global communities. To provide global experiences, students will have the opportunity to participate in skype experiences, international service learning projects, globally focused project-based learning, along with integration with academic standards and curriculum programs. Students will also have the great opportunity to be exposed to the Mandarin language beginning in kindergarten with full language exploration beginning in fifth grade. Estrella Foothills Global Academy is an International Baccalaureate Candidate School for the Middle Years Programme. Through this programme, all students will embark upon the focused learning attributes with every lesson including three specific inquiry questions that are factual, conceptual, and debatable. The Middle Years Programme is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.

Throughout the year, we involve our students in many community and cultural events. We believe to be a better citizen, one must cooperatively work to serve their community. Our staff commits themselves to appreciating diversity, promoting inclusion, and showing respect for others. We have this same expectation for our students.
Estrella Foothills is one of Laveen's 8 great elementary schools. See what makes them outstanding.
