Silva Valley Elementary is one of six elementary schools in the Buckeye Union School District and we serve approximately 450 students from the surrounding neighborhood. Our school has an outstanding reputation of academic excellence in our community.
The Silva Valley staff looks forward to working with you to maximize your child’s educational experiences. We will devote all of our expertise and energy to establishing a safe, nurturing and academically challenging learning environment for all students. Instruction in our core reading, writing, and math programs is provided in a variety of ways to promote student learning. Support services are provided in the areas of math and reading for struggling students. We understand students are more successful when strong connections are made with students by adults. Support is provided by our school counselor and school staff to support the social-emotional needs of all of our students. Silva Valley Elementary continues to be a top performing school in the Buckeye Union School District.
As educators, we firmly believe that a strong family school partnership is essential to student success and achievement. Monthly newsletters from the principal and weekly Friday Folders and other weekly notices by teachers promote a clear communication between the school and home. Our PTA works closely with our community plan and coordinates fun family events that enrich our school school culture. They also raise funds that bring the students exciting and enriching assemblies, contribute to our technology needs, and provide support for our visual arts program.
The school staff is committed to providing a safe, orderly and caring learning environment where students feel comfortable, share responsibility for maintaining a positive school climate, and take pride in their school and their achievements. As a school, we encourage attitudes and behaviors that promote mutual respect and harmonious relations. As a staff we have developed a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) model. PBIS is a systems approach to preventing and responding to classroom and school discipline problems. PBIS develops school-wide systems that support staff to teach and promote appropriate behavior in all students. By reducing behavioral problems, PBIS creates and maintains safe learning environments where teachers at Silva Valley can teach and students can learn. In addition, Silva Valley Elementary offers programs that provide a safe and caring learning environment such as Team Eagle, Kindness Crew, and Student Council.
