GRADE inflation emerges from the Principal's office! Look at the Platinum Recognition list for 2011: 28 students in 6th grade, 77 students in 7th grade and 66 students in the 8th grade merit this "Achievement Status". Now examine the standardized test scores. They do NOT match! Grades are supposed to be earned and are to be OBJECTIVELY assigned based on standards and benchmarks based on grade level academic content standards. This is blatant grade inflation in attempt to make the students feel successful and the parents feel proud. The Platinum regulations rules state that a GPA of 3.70 or greater MUST BE MAINTAINED . This is an A- average. Are these students meeting State subject matter content standards? Please explain the miserable to mediocre results of the school on state tests ALIGNED to these SAME standards.
im a student a dvms and i love it there. theres awesome i wish i never had to leave.
My family recently moved to Oakley and we were all a little nervous about changing schools and districts. I can't tell you how welcome my children feel by the teachers and principal at Delta Vista. I love how the principal is always present, even directing traffic at the end of school. 5 stars!
The principal is not a good role model fro students. He manages by trying to be friends or chums of the kids. Kids want an ADULT leader, not just another 'big kid' they can play with. The principals' father-in-law is the Head of the district which the name of the street the school is located on! Where I come from, they call that cronyism or nepotism. You can not lead when you do not command respect..
my daughter has been going to dvms for two years now and has done better than she ever has in school, the staff is very supportive and dedicated to seeing each child suceed.
Delta Vista has a bully prevention system. Its called the bully box. If you are being bullied, you can put your name and their name and drop it in the box. Then the counsler will call you and him up to her office and talk about it. The teachers are very nice too. I actually go there and its a fun place to be.
I love my school i like my teachers a lot and there is a lot people that you can get to know and get along with and become friends.
This school is fanatastic. The principal is energetic and the entire teaching staff is dedicated and terrific. They are strict, but fair. They also have great ideas for teaching.There needs to be more parent involvement, but that is slowly happening. Getting better every year.
I would like to say that Delta Vista is a great school! I have a 6th and 7th grader who also love Delta Vista and after long days at school still come home with a smile and lots of wonderful stories to share. They love their teachers, their principal and vice principal. Parents are always welcome to come into the classroom to help and extra help is always needed in the office. Staff is always helpful whenever I have had questions or had any concerns. I encourage all parents to get to know the staff at Delta Vista and really get involved. Go Panthers!
Delta Vista is an awesome school. The Principal, Vice Principal, Counselors, Office Staff, Classified staff and teaching staff all work together as a team to give all our students a great education and any help they may need. Keep up the good work Delta Vista Staff
Delta Vista is a great school because you get awsome teachers such as: Mrs. Beneddetti- Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1a, Mrs. Tate- American and World History, and Mrs. Morse- Life and Physical Science. D.V.S. has awsome teachers. I would rate the school 4 1/2. And who ever said D.V.S. isn't that good of a school is a moron, because they didn't have the teachers' in middle school. Trust me. I went Delta Viasta the first two years and I know how good the teachers are. Know I'm in high school and is Freshman at Freedom High.
I have had several problems with Delta Vista, ranging from teachers not notifying me about a curriculum learning problem with my child to not being notified immediately when my daughter was severely injured on an Outdoor Adventure Camping Trip. The school, in those subjects has been horrible. My daughter's injury consisted of needing a cast on her leg. An EMT was on the premises when my daughter was injured, yet he was never notified either. I became aware of my daughter's injury when she was carried off the bus on their return trip home. The principal was a totally different, or should I say indifferent type of person. He really didn't care about anything. You could tell that he did not want to deal with the harsh realities of being the principal, he just wanted to have fun. His lack of caring and expertise in being a principal greatly effected his responsibilities as a principal.
