District Vision To create a culture of innovation, inquiry, and individuality that promotes achievement and choice by cultivating the skills needed to compete and collaborate as ethical and responsible global citizens.

District Mission Statement The mission of the PVRHSD is to prepare our students for successful college and/or career experiences with the needed mindset, skills, structures, and knowledge to accomplish that goal.

District Assessment Philosophy

To check for understanding and/or competency of curriculum standards using a balance of methods that give useful feedback to inform growth. Using departmental specific methods under the leadership of the departmental supervisor, this feedback leads to a summative grade which is an evaluation of student competency with the curriculum and associated standards.
