From pre-kindergarten through grade five, educators at A.X. Benavides Elementary School model a shared focus on ensuring that all students are actively engaged in developing a solid understanding of key concepts and skills.   Student success is not accidental: it is meticulously planned as teachers work together to ensure that all students are likely to leave each lesson with a deep understanding of the lesson objective.  Benavides students feel supported by their teachers and they are eager to learn more. 

At the Symposium, Benavides leaders will share what has happened to establish this strong focus throughout the school.  They will describe the instructional practices that have become embedded throughout the school and they will describe what has happened to make these practices ubiquitous at Benavides.
