    Welcome to Valencia Elementary School, home of Eagle Pride! It is my honor to be a part of such an amazing place for students to learn and grow! At Valencia, we work diligently to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all students to progress academically, socially, and emotionally.   It is our goal for students, families and staff to work together to support the children in our care.  

    Our staff of dedicated teachers focuses on academic instruction, critical thinking, and problem solving strategies as we transition into the Common Core State Standards.  Technology is used to facilitate this process through the use of class sets of Chromebooks and a computer lab.  Hands-on manipulatives are used to help students develop conceptual understanding of concepts and our Eagles are encouraged to explain their thought processes throughout their learning experiences.

    Valencia has a multitude of opportunities for students to expand their interests both during the school day and via after-school enrichment opportunities.  Our PTA is incredibly supportive as they provide our school with funding for continuous music and art instruction! We also offer a variety of enrichment programs, including but not limited to chess, theater, and comic strip creation, classes after school each trimester.

    If you have questions about our school or would like to visit, please feel free to contact our office at (909) 949-7830. We'd love to chat with you!
