    This is our first year at Pauba and I hope our last. Our child is in 2nd grade and although her teacher is wonderful there are major issues at this school with bullying. The Principle is too gentle and nice with the way she is handling the social problems and there is no repercussions for the children that do the bullying. Also with all the fund raising we have contributed to I would at least expect they would go on a field trip but no. Not sure what PTA is doing with all the money raised? Meet the Masters given it's parents who teach it (for free) does not cost the school as it is funded by the state. We have lost faith in this school and can't wait to leave this school behind us!!

    My son is very advanced for his age and grade. He had Mrs Longrie for Kindergarten and Mrs. Drlik this year for first and they passionate about their work. They have not compromised their dedication and or standards because of budget cuts and increase in class size. I am in this school and involved and can see growth and positive changes in my son because of Mrs. Drlik. Both of his teachers have always communicated very well with us and are an example of what every teacher should be. Despite of the problems we are facing in school changes they have never lowered their standards or compromised their great character and have always put in so much more time energy dedication than what was required of them.

    My 3 children beagn their academics at Pauba Valley Elementary. I can not say enough wonderful things about their staff and teachers. I had an opportunity to relocate my career but my biggest pursuader was Pauba Valley Elementary. We definitely consider them as our extended family. Our children are very responsive to their program and are currently members of the Principal Honor Roll.

    Pauba Valley has the best teachers of any elementary school. The Principal and Staff know every student and parent by name. The teachers are all extrememly caring and educated. Although I would love to move back up to Northern CA I know I would have a very difficult time finding a school that compares to Pauba Valley.

    Pauba Valley is the best elementary school! My son has attended PVES since 1st grade and everyone of his teachers has been excellent. He really took off academically in 4th grade with Mrs. Coward - we love her. She guided(pushed) and encouraged him.

    My children have attended Pauba Valley for over ten years combined. This is a great school. The school has experienced teachers and programs not found at other schools. The school is one of a kind in a great school district.

    Steve Sloan is the best teacher my son has ever had! His focus on indiviudalized tailored education using his latest computer system is such a great idea -- the kids love it -- other schools and teachers should be following Steve's great example

    Pauba Valley Elementary provided an excellent academic environment for my twin boys (just promoted to middle school). The teachers were always caring and showed considerable interest in their success. As our boys move on to middle school we feel they are better prepared to face the challenges that lay ahead of them because they went to Pauba Valley.

    Pauba Valley is a wonderful school. My son has excelled to his full potential because of how well this school is run. The principal knows every student and is completely involved in every childs progress. Parent involvment is also wonderful. the Pta has raised so much money to help the school. We moved out of state and the one thing I really miss is this wonderful school. I am having a hard time finding a school that compares to this one!

    Every teacher we have met is caring and enthusiastic. There is great parent involvement- volunteering in the classrooms bookfairs PTA and special events. I would recommend this school highly to friends and family members. We have had children at Pauba Valley from kindergarten through 3rd grade (and would continue on if we hadn't moved!).
