Paradise Valley, a K-6 elementary school, was built and began operation in 1978. There are currently 26 certificated teachers on staff, including Special Education teachers. There are 15 classified employees who serve over 500 students as classroom aides, food services, library, health, custodial and secretarial staff.
There are numbers of district personnel who indirectly serve the students on a daily basis, consulting on legal or curriculum matters as well as maintaining our facility and landscape.
Our Principal is Mr. W. Phil Duncan, Mrs. Didi Wake serves as school secretary and Delia Ortaz maintains enrollment records and attendance reporting required by the State of California.
The current school mascot and colors were selected through a student election. The student body chose a Panther as a mascot and Blue and Gold as colors. The monthly newsletter is distributed in the student's folder on the first Friday of each month.
