My child has been in Pauba Valley Elementary school for 3 years now and I can't say enough good things about the teachers here. The administration from what I have experienced just cares about numbers and test scores. Forget about having any concerns about your child it will be swiped under the rug with a smile and have a good day. There is no room here for bright and gifted children to grow and any concern you have as a parent for your child will be listened to once, maybe twice but the third time the administration will start treating you differently (in not a good way) and there will be changes in their attitude toward you as a parent. The principal isn't involved in the students and just seems like she is waiting for a promotion so she could be out of there as fastest she can.
This isn't a place where my child has thrived if you are not a hands on parent and bearing 85% of the load your child will fall behind! I always thought that this would be a great experience for us and that the school would love to have kids that are advanced, but if it is too much work for the administration to do they are lazy and don't want to deal with it. Very sad time for our kids.
There are other great schools that are much more hands on and all I want to put out there is that if you care about your child's education search your options.
