Welcome to Camarena Elementary!

Robo griffin mascotCelebrating 10 years of excellence! Camarena School opened in July, 2013 and is located in the Winding Walk community of Eastlake. The school facility consists of two 2-story buildings that contain 32 classrooms and three one-story buildings that contain 12 additional classrooms for a total of 44 classrooms. Every classroom contains a flat screen TV and Apple TV for projection from teacher and student digital devices. Classrooms have white board paint across one wall from floor to 8 feet to allow for student brainstorming and exploration of ideas. The Library Media Center is an open space with two flat screen TVs on either side of the space. There is a Green Screen Video Room within the Library Media Center to provide opportunities for broadcast and video production. Additionally, a Maker Space within the Library Media Center has been established this year. We have 10 resource rooms that provide space for our Resource Specialist Program (RSP), Speech Therapist(s), Limited English Proficient aide, Psychologist, and our counselor with the Military Family Liaison Counseling Program.
