Our fundamental purpose is to educate young people with the highest possible quality instruction; to nurture students' intellectual, physical, and social growth, helping each to achieve to his/her highest potential.
We provide a multi-tiered system of academic supports, interventions, and enrichments to students that include after and during school programs. We offer parents meaningfully ways to be involved with the education of their children.
We strive to ensure a safe environment for all students that nurtures each child's social and emotional development.
Bennett Valley Union School District serves students from preschool to grade six in its two schools, Strawberry and Yulupa. The district's schools are located in Southeast Santa Rosa in quiet, residential neighborhoods combining the best of rural and suburban settings. The Bennett Valley Union School District is a school community where the state of the arts in teaching and learning meld with the past, teaching children of their roots, while providing them wings for tomorrow. Within a learning climate that encourages innovation and creativity, children are nurtured to learn a broad-based academic and extended curriculum necessary for their continuing education and future success. Parent involvement, a hallmark of our district, is vitally important to our overall educational program. Parents and educators work together in an ever-evolving partnership for the children of Bennett Valley.
