Ramirez Elementary School is a Science and Technology magnet school located in the heart of Lubbock. The school is a literacy-based campus that emphasizes literacy from kindergarten through sixth grade.

The curriculum begins with an Early Literacy program in kindergarten through second grade. Students in grades K-2 also have the advantage of the Reading Recovery program -- a comprehensive short-term, one-to-one reading program.

Established in 1986, Ramirez is one of the district's newer facilities, and is one of the largest elementary schools in the school district.

Ramirez has a combination cafeteria/gymnasium/auditorium, and an additional gymnasium for physical education.

In keeping with the age of technology, Ramirez has computers in classrooms and two computer labs, and all computers are Internet-ready. The school boasts five computers per classroom and the computer labs each have 20 computers. The school uses Dell computers, according to a school official.

Parental involvement through the parent teacher association and parent-volunteer programs is "very active throughout the year," and is instrumental in furthering educational activities and school celebrations, one school official said.

Ramirez celebrates student success, excellent attendance and cultural holidays throughout the year.

The school is ranked a Professional Development School by the district and, as such, works in close conjunction with local universities in staff training, and conducting research to improve its curricula.
