Homestead Residents to Attend Highly-Rated Schools
Friday August 25th, 2017
For parents, finding the right homeroom can be just as important as finding the right home. Thankfully, Homestead residents have access to the highly rated Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District, with plans to develop a SCUCISD elementary school within Homestead in future phases.
SCUCISD is accredited and recognized by the Texas Education Agency. It was also awarded a superior TEA FIRST rating for the 2016-2017 school year for going above and beyond to maintain their financial status to provide for their current and future students. SCUCISD is proud to have one of the highest completion rates in the state, with 96% of students graduating high school. Here are the award-winning SCUCISD schools that Homestead’s youngest residents will attend.
The vision at John A. Sippel Elementary School is, “Building Leaders and Lifelong Learners One Child at a Time.” To achieve this vision, John A. Sippel Elementary School provides not just a quality education, but an assortment of supplemental after-school programs. Art a la Carte encourages creativity and self-expression while the YMCA After School Care Program works to keep kids active and healthy.
Elaine S. Schlather Intermediate school prides itself on providing students with a challenging education that nurtures and grows their potential. Special programs for Gifted and Talented, ESL and dyslexic students, help ensure that every child receives the individual attention that they need. Students are encouraged to develop their character through extracurriculars like band, athletics, drama and even a board and card games club. Parents are invited to take part in their child’s school and education through the Watch D.O.G.S. and Parent Teacher Club programs.
