Ortega Elementary School in East Austin is named in honor of Daniel F. Ortega, a World War II hero from Austin. The school’s namesake inspires students to achieve their highest potential through self-discipline and self-improvement.
Working with families and community partners, Ortega fosters a culture of collaboration, which promotes children’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development.
Experienced educators create a challenging and nurturing environment for all students to develop their talents and skills as they prepare for college, career and life.
In addition to offering core subjects such as English language arts and social studies, Ortega is proud to provide Pre-K, dual language and robust science, technology, engineering and math programs.
The tightly knit school community offers a world of educational opportunities—from arts and athletics to reading and robotics—to ensure all children reach their fullest potential.
Ortega is part of the Eastside Memorial family of schools, which offers STEM programs at every grade level and is part of the district’s new creative learning initiative to offer a quality arts-rich education to every child.
