This a a great neighborhood school with a great student population. Though budget cuts have forced larger class sizes, the teachers strive to stimulate and engage a students academically an socially. They are implementing the more challenging common core Curriculum with success. I have had two children go through paradise and each have had a wonderful experience and have come out strong happy students prepared for the future.

We left after one year here. They lost 40% of their staff to the new Jackson Academy (public) and the principal retired (which was a good thing - he was burnt out and a bit of a grouch). I heard the one is nice, but don't know much about her. We really liked our teacher there, but the class sizes remain high. You can make it work, but consider private if you can afford it. If not, consider one of the other local schools. It's not ALL about test scores people.

Three of my grandchildren attend Paradise Elementary and I am very pleased with the curriculum development, student activities, and the communications from the principal and parent organizations. This is my first experience with elementary public education, as my own children and my older grandchildren had Catholic schooling. I am also a teacher, so I can say with complete confidence that Paradise provides a well rounded education for its students.

Paradise Valley is a wonderful school. I actually had my daughter enrolled in a private school when I thought there was no hope to get her in {our zoned school is a program improvement school and is rated poorly}. Upon being notified by the district that our preferred placement application was approved, I was initially hesitant to transfer her. Now I am very glad I did. The parent participation is almost overwhelming. The principal is very involved in day to day and his leadership is evident. The social opportunities and diversity on campus, as compared to the private school, are providing a more positive and inclusive experience for my daughter. The academic curriculum,especially considering the number of students in class,have allowed my daughter to be challenged and thrive way beyond grade level standards. I rated the teacher quality a 4, is based on their inability to communicate more regularly with the parents and the occasional lapse in communication.I am aware it is due to the sheer number of students/parents they have but there have been communication breakdowns regarding events and volunteering.Paradise is a wonderful school that exceeded my expectations; which were high.

My 10 year old daughter loves this school!! It is a small intimate school with excellent teachers and staff. Friendly and supportive teachers who make your child feel special. Small student ratio.

I have two children at Paradise and I am very happy with the school, especially after the new principal arrived. He is a great principal in my opinion, he is alway available to the parents and since he has arrived the scores and the schools focus have been greatly enhanced. Each year the juggling of class sizes and teachers gets harder and harder because of our state budget issues but I think that the principal has done the best he can given the situation he and the school are in. In the 3 yrs that my children have been there, the teachers have been great. They are involved in students and seem to really care about each kid. As for parental involvement, like most things it is 80-20, 80% of the volunteering is being done by the same 20%. We need more parents to get involved more often, it is a great school and can only be made enhanced with more interaction from a large number of parents. At the end of the day I would not want my children to got to a different public school, they love the teachers, they have great friends and are happy and excited about going to school each day, as a parent what more could you ask.

I had high expectations from this school since it is supposed to be 2nd best here in Morgan Hill. My child is new to the school, entering 5th grade, and has had to change teachers 3 times within the first 6 weeks of school. My child is being taught by a kindergarten teacher, and many parents (including myself) feel the teacher is not at all qualified to teach at the 5th grade level. My child has come home with coloring for homework and has even asked me for help on math problems that the teacher did not know how to teach. The principal is well aware of these problems as many of us parents have spoken out. The principal is not doing anything to support us parents, nor is he doing anything to assure that our children are receiving a good education. Very upset and disappointed!!!!

My son is only in Kindergarten but his teacher is absolutely amazing! She has given him a foundation that has exceeded my expectations! I was a teacher myself so I know a good teacher when I see one. Her patience, style, loving learning environment is more than any parent could ask for. I feel that she has set my child up for an educational success. Thank you!

I feel that Paradise Valley/Machado Elementary school has wonderful parent support. It is in a wonderful close knit community. I am not happy with the education my children are getting. One of my children seems to be very behind in reading and there doesn't seem to be much support or acknowledgement of the problem. My other child is ahead in both math and reading and is stagnant. Not being challenged to his fullest ability. It is very frustrating as a parent to see this. My first child was sent to summer school because of being behind in reading. It was the biggest waist of time. She did not gain anything from her experience. I think we need more teachers who really care and know there children. We of course have not had all the teachers and there may be some really good ones. I just haven't experienced them yet.

We are starting our fourth year at Paradise Valley; I have a daughter in 3rd grade and a daughter in 1st. My husband and I have been very pleased with our daughter's education so far. The teachers that we have encountered are outstanding. Despite the high principal turnover rate (we are on the third one in four years), we feel that due to the high amount of parental involvement and strong sense of community, this school has been awesome. Our new principal has been doing a great job thus far and I appreciate her determination and dedication to our school. We wouldn't think of putting our daughters anywhere else!

Paradise Valley is a 'fair' school, however I am not impressed with California's school systems on a whole to begin with. I feel that 'teacher' involvement is this school's best attribute with management falling short to the worst. The teachers make it worth while as I believe most of them really try to put their 'class' first. Principal James Hamilton seems to only care about these children when it does not interfere with his 'status'. I feel that the school district in general, as well as Mr. Hamilton, will turn their back on children in need, rather than offer any assistance to the well being of these children. It is a big disappointment, to me as well as many parents that I speak to, to not be able to depend on 'your child's school' when in need. But if you have a child who poses no threat to the schools atmosphere, hurray!

I have a child in kindergarten and really love the school. We have a wonderful teacher who really cares. She inspires my child to do her best and provides a great learning environment. She is doing very well and she really enjoys going to school every day. I think this is one of the best schools in the district and am very happy overall.

Both my daughters have attended Paradise Valley. My youngest one still attends. When we moved from Sacramento the Morgan Hill, my eldest daughter had been struggling in the school system there. She had always been just an average student , she never really had the drive to excel. She attended Paradise Valley for her 6th grade. Over the period of the one year, not only had she 'grasped' the work, but had excelled far more that we expected. This set into motion her passion for learning. She is now enrolled in Britton Junior High. She is in three advanced classes and has maintained the Honor Roll with a 3.5 GPA all year. I have nothing but admiration for the teaching staff at Paradise Valley and feel it is one of the best school s in the California School System.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
