Welcome to Emiliano Zapata Elementary

Principal Rosa Gonzalez Vela

Our vision is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and productive citizens. It is our priority to provide a safe environment that meets the individual needs of each student both academically and socially.

Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. We encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership.

We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.

Shine Bright and Show Your Zapata Pride!
