San Pasqual Valley Elementary School has a highly trained Staff and an incredible Principal (at this time). The Staff is constantly looking at student data to understand how to better serve the children. Staff get involved with the community by attending the local "grasshopper" league sporting events, pageants, funerals, quincineras, the pow wow, and more. The school has hosted community events such as movie nights, Fall Festival, and the Science Fair, to name a few. Many students are driven and have wonderfully supportive families. Many students struggle and come to school ill-prepared to learn. Some students come to school with such tremendous personal baggage that they simply do not function well in a public school setting. The high rate of turn over in the administrative levels is problematic across the district. The politicizing of schooling does not serve our children. Unless their focus is off of personal power trips and vindictiveness, our children suffer. This school is as great as the student and family make it. This school is as great as the relationship between the family and the teacher. If the teachers and families join ranks, the students will thrive!

As a former student of San Pasqual I agree that years ago this school was not a place that I would have wanted my children to attend. The system has changed alot, they have better curriculum and the teachers are more involved with the students.

I was once a student at this school, and I can tell you that most classes are not really being taught at the proper grade level, and that this school definitely did not prepare me for college. Classes are not challenging and there is no attendance and tardy policy. Not to mention, the kids have no respect for their teachers or peers. These kids are not held accountable for anything. That's why most of them grow up and have a difficult time functioning in a realistic world. The students have a great deal of potential, but administrators aren't there to encourage them to grow. They are only there for their paychecks and career advancement. I would not recommend anyone sending their child to this school K-12, if they really care about their childs ed. and safety. It is not a safe and school enrichment environment. This place is a complete nightmare!

In spite of issues, some student due exceptionally well, to include one who entered and graduated from Harvard U. The teachers are world class, very educated, staff work very hard. Unfortunately administration gets a little political in this sometimes socially hostile community. In this charged NCLB era, how much is the school (and the gov't) supposed to be responsible for student performance, as opposed to the parent(s) and the individual. Anyone can learn if chooses.

I think this school is great, as a student who is the top of her class I have good, challenging class. The student to teacher ratio is good and there are tutors in the core classes. I know parents in AZ who want to send their kids to SP but they don't have the right paperwork for it. Sure we don't have music but we have clubs and a great sports program. By the way the kids that go to AZ schools could not handle our school for some reason.

This school is at the bottom of all rating systems, and rightfully so. Most parents that can manage will send their kids to the AZ schools instead.
