Thoughts from some families at Estrella
"I am SO excited thatthe administration values art at Estrella. Your art teacher is brilliant. Her commitment to detail and the quantity of quality art pieces that your studentbody produced in one semester is phenomenal. Additionally, the foundation to explore the background of specific artists and styles promotes historical and global awareness. This is an asset to the educational journey for Estrella students."
Mrs. Garvy
