At Piñon Valley Elementary School, our vision is that children will feel safe, accepted, supported and academically challenged. They will be encouraged to become life-long learners who demonstrate a love of learning. They will have a solid mastery of basic skills and an understanding of practical applications of learning in everyday life. Children will also be provided with enrichment activities to encourage the development of divergent thinking, problem solving and creativity. Students will be encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions and will be held accountable for their academic performance and their social interactions with their peers. The uniqueness and strengths of every individual will be valued, accepted and encouraged by all staff members.
