The Vine Hill Read-a-thon was a great success which ended with a school-wide pajama reading day! Thank you to all our visiting community readers during the Read-a-thon. Students enjoyed local adults sharing their favorite books. The Vine Hill 5th graders are gearing up for Science Camp in April, and had their DARE graduation to celebrate the completion of lessons about decision making and drug/alcohol avoidance.  Enrollment for 2019.2020 is in full swing. Please contact Maria at 831.438.1090 with questions about enrollment.

From the Falcon’s Nest:

Scotts Valley High School completed its WASC Self-Study.  In the first week of March the Western Association of Schools and Colleges sent a 4 person team to SVHS to review the school from the top to bottom.  The team read SVHS's self-study report and spent 4 days on the campus to validate the school's findings.  They interviewed parents, students, district and site staff and observed all of the classes in action.  On the final day of their visit the WASC team reported back.  SVHS was commended for the strength of our academic program, the safety of our campus in both physical and social terms, and the successful incorporation of RIC, Respect, Integrity, and Compassion, into our school culture.  We are always striving to improve, but it's important to step back and recognize what we are already doing so well.
