This is our second year at senita and I am very impressed with student safety. Adults wear yellow vests are seen outside at all times during drop off and dismissal. Great education, great secretaries and great teachers!

We have had our children at Senita Valley for four years and we love it! In our experience, the teachers are so engaged and proactive in the kids' education and we can't say enough positive things about them. The principle is completely engaged and is seen daily on campus, personally making sure everything ...  Read more

The philosophy of teaching, overall, in the Vail School District tends towards teaching to the test. Vail students definitely know how to test as they are drilled in it daily. Ratings (regardless of their meaning or lack thereof) are of more importance than actual learning. The latest in technology ...  Read more

Senita Valley is no longer a K-8 school. The school has been divided into Senita Valley Elementary and Rincon Vista Middle. We have had children in both schools and have been very pleased.

I had 2 children go there for 2 years. The first year they were open and the following year. Beware of an awful parking ...  Read more
