Hello and Welcome to Prospect Valley Elementary School!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our school. Prospect Valley Elementary School has a long and rich tradition of providing an excellent well-rounded education for area elementary age students. We pride ourselves on providing high quality instruction, a rigorous curriculum and outstanding enrichment opportunities. Our students are happy, safe, hard working and well behaved. Standards for behavior, academic achievement and parent involvement are high at our school!

Our outstanding teaching staff is experienced, talented and committed to their profession. Teachers work hard to stay current with the latest trends in curriculum, standards, technology and instruction. Teachers participate in meaningful professional development, lesson planning and analysis of student data all aimed at increasing student achievement.

Academic achievement is our top priority at Prospect Valley. Skilled teachers provide intensive instruction using a rigorous curriculum that challenges all students. Lessons are differentiated in each classroom to meet the needs of each individual student. Assessments are used to monitor the progress of students and to adjust instruction. A full-time instructional coach works with teachers to reinforce best instructional practices, along with top instructional resources.

Extra-curricular and enrichment programs are plentiful at our school. In addition to an outstanding core curriculum, our students have access to a rich and challenging curriculum in the areas of art, music and physical education. Students are provided with the opportunity to extend their learning and development beyond the classroom through activities such as science fair, foreign language classes, year-around intramural sports, spelling bee, destination imagination, tinikling, rhythms, chess club, after-school writing workshops, ELL homework club, student council, peer mediators and many more.

Parents and teachers work together to plan and provide academic enrichment lessons and activities for students who are academically advanced. Professional Interventionists work with students who need specific academic assistance in small groups. Para-professionals work with students in a variety of settings. Our goal is to help each child grow academically to reach their potential.

Parent involvement is a key to our success and something we embrace. If you visit our school, you will see many parents volunteering. Our PTA and Accountability groups are well attended and are a tremendous support to our school.

Safety and security are always our priority. We have a comprehensive safety and security plan that all staff members are trained on. We conduct safety drills throughout the school-year.Our Watchdog Dad program provides our dads with the opportunity to spend a day at our school volunteering and monitoring school grounds.

We know you will appreciate our school environment which is both safe and welcoming to our guests. Our teachers and support staff are friendly, dedicated and here to help parents and students. My door is always open for parents, students and community members and I encourage you to visit our school!
