“As the proud principal of Estes Elementary, I take great pride in our motivated staff who work diligently to support the academic needs of our learners. We continue to focus on intentional instructional practices and professional development to provide all staff with the tools and resources they need, especially to strengthen literacy, math competency, and differentiated instruction. We are successful for several reasons:

Our students come to school ready to learn and are excited to be challenged every day!

Our staff focus on the whole child, know that caring hearts in a safe learning community directly correlate to students ready to learn.

Our families are committed to supporting their students and the staff that nurture them along their learning journey here in Marana!

It is an honor to work alongside our students, staff, and families each day! This news is such a highlight for our dedicated Estes community!”

About State Letter Grades

School letter grades are determined using a formula that weighs a range of academic measures, including year-to-year student academic growth, proficiency in English language arts, math and science, the proficiency and academic growth of English language learners, attendance, special education metrics, high school dropout and graduation rates, as well as indicators that high school students are ready to succeed in a career or higher education.

A complete report of all Marana Schools’ grades are posted on the District website.
