We are very fortunate to have a VIDA Clinic on campus. They specialize in school-based mental health and provide a range of services that include individual, family, and group counseling; teacher training and consultation groups; school-wide workshops and trauma-informed culture building. They are inspired by the desire to create and implement innovative ways of providing high quality mental health services, fostering empowered and healthier communities, including those populations who are typically underserved due to financial need and language barriers. Vida Clinic programming is available at our campus, allowing our community to access services in a timely and convenient manner. They customize their therapeutic approach to meet the needs of individuals and groups being served. Through their partnership with the school district, Vida Clinic aims to help promote awareness, understanding, and empathy in an effort to destigmatize mental health needs. 512-841-4641
Ms. Yvette Cardenas, Principal & Ms. Melissa Martinez, Assistant Principal
The administration wears many hats. First, they are responsible for shaping a vision of academic success for all of our students. Having high expectations for all of our students will help to close the achievement gap. Secondly, it is the responsibility of the principals to ensure that our school allows both adults and children to put learning at the center of their daily activities. Lastly, our principals are responsible for promoting leadership in others. Research has shown that the more willing principals are to spread leadership around, the better for the students.
