It is the mission of the Valle Lindo School District that all students realize their maximum potential, empowering them to become Challenged Intellectually, Physically Fit, Socially Responsible & Culturally Sensitive.
Valle Lindo School District has been hailed as the “best kept secret in the state” and “a peach of a district” by program quality reviewers and auditors. We invite you to visit our schools and tour our historical schoolhouse, botanical gardens, and engaging classrooms. Established in 1863, this District of two schools is the third oldest district in the state, rich in history and accomplishments. Both Dean L. Shively Middle School and New Temple Elementary School have been recognized as California Distinguished Schools, and both schools have earned Title I Academic Achievement Awards.
