We have implemented a new campus wide discipline program called Positive Behavior Intervention System. This program promotes positive behavior among our students. Each week, two classes are nominated for either Exemplary Positive Behavior or Most Improved Behavior. The winning classes gets their class announced on morning announcements, receives a visit from Beary Stiles and Bear-Nado, and their picture showcased in the school. Beary Stiles and Bear-Nado visits that class the entire week.
Cisneros Pre K was built and designed specifically for three, four and five year old children. The library, gym, bathrooms, computer lab cafeteria and lockers are all specially sized for Pre-K children. Our teachers are trained and certified in early childhood development and provides academic age appropriate instruction daily.

to recognize colors, shapes, letters, and numbers
important social skills like how to pay attention in class and interact with other children
listening and speaking skills

basic math skills such as counting and measuring

Basic AVID organizing skills and teaching strategies
Cisneros Pre-K and many Garland ISD school participate in the AVID program. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The AVID program promotes college awareness and gives students the tools they will need to be successful in college.
The Gomez and Gomez program is implemented in the Spanish bilingual classes to aid in the academic and linguistic developmental growth of children developing their first language and adding a second language.
All students whose first language is other than English will enroll via the Student Services office rather than the campus. This allows for language testing and other support for these students.
Cisneros offers three, four, and five year old children with disabilities the opportunity to participate in the Early Childhood Special Education Program or ECSE. These special preschoolers receive instruction in the developmental areas of pre-academics, communication, motor, self-help and social/emotional.
