Los Fresnos CISD is home to nine elementary schools which have proven academic success for many years with numerous state and national awards.
More than 4,100 elementary school students are enrolled in grades from Pre-Kindergarten to 5. Los Fresnos CISD began offering full-day Pre-Kindergarten in 2020.
Project Lead the Way, a nationally acclaimed STEM program, is offered at all nine schools for students in grades K-5. All nine elementary schools are designated PLTW Project Launch Distinguished Schools for two straight years. Only 14 schools nationally have received that recognition. There are coding labs at each elementary school to boost STEM education.
Elementary schools have received numerous awards. Almost all campuses have received perfect scores in the Texas Education Agency Postsecondary Readiness Distinction awards since the honors began in 2014. In addition, two schools – Olmito Elementary and Rancho Verde Elementary – have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education.
