Message from the Admin Team

At Ventura Park we work collectively every day to ensure that all students reach their fullest potential.

This year we are continuing to focus on implementing rigorous, standards-based instruction, personalizing instruction to meet every student’s needs, reflecting on our data-driven cycles for continuous improvement, and creating a joyful culture for learning.

We look forward to continuing to partner with families and the community to ensure academic success for all of our students. Student success is all about teamwork. One third comes from staff, one third comes from students and one third comes from families. Together, we’ve got this!
