White flight has impacted this school district. Even the current President and Vice President of the School Board have pulled their children out and transferred them to other public schools. No members of the School Board or the administration are Hispanic, yet 80 percent of the student population is. A school bond for $2 million failed to pass in 2014, leaving the school with unaddressed maintenance problems and an administration with no solutions. The poor image of this school negatively impacts real estate in Rainbow.
Vallecitos Elementary is providing my step-son with good learning activities and good learning habits, he seems very excited when he speaks to his mommy about what he learns and how he is excited about his science class and he likes his teacher Mr.Smiley very much.
