  • Dear Falcons,

    Welcome to Fuerte! I'm looking forward to meeting our new Falcons and getting to know our current Falcons even better. I honestly believe we have the best community, with the best kids and the best staff on the planet. Our people are what make Fuerte the special place that it is; "Home is not a place, it's a feeling." With the best people around, we create the feeling of wonder and excitement of learning. We pride ourselves on providing a safe learning environment that emphasizes kindness, innovation, creativity, and curricular rigor.

    Fuerte is built on relationships. We know when children feel safe and cared about, they are not only able to but excited to learn. Fuerte’s community is passionate and curious, whether they are the students or the staff who inspire students every day to fulfill their greatest potential. Our purpose remains crystal clear: to educate, in student-centered classrooms, citizens who will contribute their talents to the contemporary world in transformative ways. We will continue to develop happy, healthy, well-rounded leaders who are confident readers and writers and self-assured speakers. While we want them to be successful in school, our bigger mission is to develop citizens who will thrive in college, the workforce and beyond. 

    This year, we will continue with our mission: 

    Fuerte Leaders come to school to learn new things, support each other and be the best we can be. 

    Welcome to Fuerte, home of the Falcons!
