    About our school

    At John Ireland Elementary School, our mission is to empower a Wolfpack of innovative thinkers to build our future and stand out in our community! Recently, John Ireland embraced the concept of being a Professional Learning Community where teachers focus on collaboration in all aspects of teaching and learning to yield high results for student success. We are a learning community that supports continuous learning for all staff and have instituted research-based instructional practices, which has placed our students' daily academic performance on an upward trend. We pride ourselves on challenging students to perform to their utmost potential, and commended performance on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) is our standard. The school staff connects with parents and the community to ensure student success. Parents are valued partners and are encouraged to participate in school activities. Our staff hosts monthly support workshops for parents on subjects from health to homework. Other parent involvement opportunities include assisting in classrooms, participating in PTA, and serving on the Site-Based Decision Making committee. School begins at 7:45a.m. with breakfast in the classroom. All Students depart at 3:00p.m. with their teachers and exit to their specified locations.
