Innovation. Collaboration. Empathy.

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  We are looking forward to another exciting year for students, staff, and parents of Juarez Academy of Engineering & Technology!

Our Mission & Vision:  Ensuring all students realize their full potential. 

At Juarez Academy, we focus on the development of 21st-century skills. We believe that it is our responsibility to spark passion in our students for critical and creative thinking. Our goal is to equip students with the necessary skills for success, empower them to help others and inspire them to have a positive impact on the world. We center student learning on the engineering design process as a thinking framework to help build the skills that students will need to be successful in college, career and in life. We want students to be inspired to innovate, driven to collaborate, and moved to show empathy for others.

New to Juarez Academy, dual language immersion is a unique educational experience with the goal of developing bi-literacy, bilingualism, and bi-cultural attitudes in elementary students. The new Kindergarten cohort begins in the Fall of 2020.


Parent and Community Partnerships

Juarez embodies a vibrant culture and will continue to do so through innovative programs and creative parent and community partnerships.  There are many opportunities for parent engagement at Juarez Academy such as School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee, volunteering in the classroom and Juarez Boosters.  Our wonderfully supportive Juarez Booster Parents sponsor various activities such as Trunk or Treat, Jog-a-thon, Science Family Night, Family Art Night, Family Picnic on the Grass, Community Read Aloud and many other fundraisers, family nights, field trips, and assemblies.  Because we value our parent community and recognize that effective communication promotes this partnership, we use a variety of communication tools – our school website, email communications, Instagram, Twitter, and REMIND.

What is a Magnet School?

A Magnet School is one that is chosen by its district and the federal government to receive extra funding, equipment, teachers, and training to "specialize" in a chosen field or two. All of the 16 Magnet Schools in ABCUSD have been awarded over $20 million federal monies to develop and sustain theme-based programs of excellence.
