Vailsburg Elementary School was founded in 2007. With so many of our fifth grade students entering North Star far below grade level, North Star expanded to the elementary grades to reach Newark children at the very beginning of their academic careers. Initially serving just 75 kindergartners, Vailsburg Elementary now serves over 400 students in grades K - 4. Vailsburg Elementary scholars graduating 4th grade transition to Vailsburg Middle School, located in the same newly renovated building. Vailsburg Elementary is currently led by Yasmin Vargas and Director of Operations Brian Maher.
