Alvarado Elementary North is an inclusionary campus. Students' needs are considered first and then programs are utilized, in some cases created, to meet the needs of each individual student. Our Inclusion team provides special help for homeroom teacher's enabling the teachers to facilitate the inclusion of special students in the homeroom setting.
Alvarado Elementary North uses C-Scope curriculum in all core subjects to ensure that the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) are taught, to the depth and rigor, to ensure success for all students.
Alvarado Elementary North has two 24-station networked computer labs that are used by teachers for a variety of activities; including basic skill development, writing, keyboarding, research, and Internet programs. These labs are also used as part of AEN's Tier II Intervention programs in the areas of math and reading according to the RtI model.
Alvarado Elementary North has an active parent support group. The Partners in Education (PIE) is based on volunteers that assist with the organization and preparation of special events. The PIE volunteers meet four times per year to plan the upcoming events to ensure involvement and success.
