Consuelo Mendez STEM Academy

Our School



Consuelo Herrera Mendez, the school’s namesake, worked as a teacher for nearly 50 years and was a tireless advocate for Mexican-American rights. She was the first Latina teacher to be hired by AISD and was the first to translate the PTSA newsletter to Spanish.

Our school opened in 1987 and we are celebrating thirty years of Maverick Pride. With a focus on both community service and career and technical education, the school carries on Mrs.Mendez’s legacy by providing students with the foundation they need to enter the global workforce and become contributing members of the Dove Springs community.
