Principal's Message

Dear Students, Staff and Parents:

As our vision states, “We are committed to developing lifelong learners who strive to reach their personal best in a diverse and changing world.”

Our commitment at Valle Vista Elementary School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century!

At Valle Vista, we strive to support and guide our students to:

  • Communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences;

  • Demonstrate a sensitivity to the precision and nuances of written, visual, and aural medium through comprehension, interpretation, and evaluation;

  • Employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems; and

  • Pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.

  • Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness; and

  • Contribute to the local and global community in a collaborative and respectful manner

High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school.  We are a dedicated and professional staff, working with an active and diverse student population in a cosmopolitan community that is well represented in our PTA.

It is with pride that we work to instruct, guide, and support your children...our students!

I am truly honored to serve as your principal.  If I can be of  any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at or (408) 238-3525.  Go Vikings!`
