-John F. Kennedy

Another Amazing Donation to West Palms

West Palms has received a donation of 33 Merlins from the Godin Guitar Company of Quebec, Canada. This brand new instrument is a cross between a dulcimer and a mandolin. It is an excellent instrument to teach very young players to play melodies on a stringed instrument. Mrs. Davison will be teaching first and second graders to play this instrument in our elective program. We believe these students will go on to become great guitar, banjo, or mandolin players!

School Accountability Report Card
">Current SARC - Click here and enter " Victorville " in the search box.
The governing boards of California school districts must annually prepare and issue the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for each elementary and secondary school under their jurisdiction. SARC reports are required by law to provide parents, the local business community, and interested parties with important information about a school's progress in 16 key areas. These Conditions cover such topics as progress toward meeting goals in reading, writing, and arithmetic progress toward reducing dropout rates and the amount of funds spent on salaries and other services. The School Accountability Report Card was established by Proposition 98, an initiative passed by California voters in November of 1988.
