Temecula Valley Charter School will provide an innovative and enriching educational environment expecting all those involved in the learning community to grow and achieve academically, emotionally, socially, and artistically in order to promote personal excellence.
Partnership for Family Involvement in Education (PFIE) best describes the role and impact of parental involvement:
“It has become increasingly evident that parental involvement in education contributes to students’ achievement in school. When families are involved in children’s learning, at school and at home, everyone benefits – schools work better, families become closer, and students improve academically. For these reasons, families and schools across America are partnering up to take mutual responsibility for children’s learning.”
The TVCS vision and mission allows students, parents, and staff to know each other on a personal level. Our hands-on learning is a strategy that centers on opportunities for students to “think,” “build,” and “create” to reinforce educational concepts. All students receive instruction in Spanish, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Physical Education, Computer Technology, and participate in hands-on experiments in the Science Lab on a weekly basis.
TVCS is unique in that parents conceptualized and established this school on their own. Parental involvement is pivotal in the success of our school. TVCS encourages parents to participate in the classroom, on field trips, on committees and on the governing board, extending their talents and time to enrich the education of TVCS students. This is what makes us “different” from other neighborhood schools.
