Tres Volcanes K-8 Grand Opening

On September 20, we opened the new Tres Volcanes K-8 Community Collaborative School. The New K-8 School alleviates elementary and middle school overcrowding in the Northwest quadrant of the District. This is a prototypical design like George I. Sanchez K-8 (opened in 2015), that moves beyond the traditional isolated classroom toward small collaborative learning environments mentorship and community building between different grade levels. The Kindergarten through 8th grade facility shares a gym, kitchen/cafeteria, and multimedia center. The capacity of the NW K-8 will comfortably serve 1,450 Students, and can accommodate up to 1,600 Students with growth.
