This is my child's second year at AV, and she couldn't be happier! She loves her teachers, who are amazing and caring. I love that there are optional STEM projects and the annual Science Fair. This is a great school and I highly recommend it!
There will be zero support if your child requires services. The SST Team is a blockade for resource for your child. Cliques run the PTA and they are not interested in you entering their domaine. The junior high is packed in with no space for these children to run, play, or enjoy sports. Their solution to the crowding is gym equipment such as treadmills. We moved out of this district known to be sued for their lack of assistance and we got the support we needed for our child's success and growth.
We are an incoming family for 2014 and loved our tour with a highly experienced and professional principal supported by enthusiastic staff working in well-maintained facilities. We can't wait to join the Arroyo Vista Family! It's the most diverse of the three south pas elementary schools and is extremely high performing!
I love the school and its teachers, and my daughter enjoys it more than any school she has ever gone to. Arroyo Vista is her third school she has attended in Elementary, her father's job moves us around sometimes . . .
We moved to South Pasadena so that our kids could attend the schools here, and we have been extremely pleased with AV. The new principal is outstanding, and the teachers and community support are wonderful. I am delighted to be a part of the AV community!
I am constantly blown away by this school. The teachers and staff find creative and artistic ways for my daughter to learn every day. I feel like she is getting a private school education at a public school and parent involvement is like nothing I have ever seen. We could not be happier! We feel lucky to have her enrolled at Arroyo Vista.
