SCHOLARSHIP: Based on a tradition of excellence, Yulupa Elementary School is the primary school in the Bennett Valley Union School District for children in Transitional Kindergarten through Third Grade. Yulupa provides students with the perfect setting to begin their school careers of academic excellence. The curriculum is designed for young learners and the staff is dedicated to supporting each child’s academic success. All students enjoy reduced class sizes for a rigorous standards-based comprehensive academic program in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, History/Social Studies, Physical Education, and the Visual and Performing Arts
MENTORSHIP: In addition to the core curriculum, Yulupa utilizes a responsive and flexible intervention model which allows us to provide targeted instruction to meet the individual needs of each student. Yulupa staff relentlessly pursues success for all students. Grade levels use a student rotation during the school day to provide targeted instruction for students at various developmental levels. Students needing academic assistance receive additional support to achieve proficiency in the state standards.
FRIENDSHIP: Academic excellence cannot be achieved without a strong foundation in social and emotional development. Yulupa staff provides a safe, nurturing environment that emphasizes a position school climate for all children. We provide a multi-tiered system of behavioral support that teaches children personal responsibility and problem resolution skills. Parents are frequently provided with information and training in the best practices for positive parenting. Our school counselor and interns lead groups that focus on specific emotional needs of children.
PARENTS AS PARTNERS: We would not be able to reach such high levels of academic achievement without the active participation of our parent community. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in our classrooms and on our playground. Many parents provide leadership to the district while serving on advisory boards and school site council. We have two parent organizations that fund our enrichment programs that include dance, art, science, technology, and school-wide assemblies.
