Principal's Message

Hello THE Families!
Greetings from my stay-at-home office.  With our stay-at-home order, I hope you and your families are staying healthy.  All of us are missing the students, and cannot wait for it to be safe enough for us to return back to school.  This is a very uncertain time for us, but our amazing teachers have been working very hard to support the learning of our students.  Teachers have been reaching out with phone calls and emails to touch base with everyone.  We look forward to connecting with all of you for conferences.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.  We are here for you!
Take care and be well!
Tami Scrivner

Picture of students holding pencils with a graph showing that East Valley Schools are performing much higher than other local schools on the math SBA.


We continue to be encouraged by the upward trend in student growth and achievement data we are seeing in our schools. In the 2018-2019 school year, 52.9% of East Valley School District students passed the Smarter Balanced Assessment in math and 60.3% passed in ELA (reading & writing). Both of these are far above the trendlines for schools in our local area.
Shape your future.
