This is my son's 2nd year and I love the feeling that every teacher and Principal is looking out for your child. The programs/sports are all run very well. Watching the other schools compete in wrestling, track and volleyball so far I am so proud of how Delta Vista teaches by the rules and plays fairly and lifts the kids up and celebrates their plays even if loosing. All of the teachers are so into the success of your child and helping them to be successful. They fully welcome and encourage parent participation, even to come in and joining your child's PE class. I highly recommend Delta Vista!

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.

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..

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.

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.
