At Kirk O' The Valley School, we believe children are best prepared for life's journey when they embrace their own and others' individuality; gain a genuine love of learning; acquire knowledge and the ability to express what they know; and discover their meaningful place in the world.
Our balanced, nurturing approach to educating children, a Kirk hallmark since 1961, helps your child gain the confidence to be successful not just in school, but in life itself.
At Kirk O' The Valley School, ours is a child-centered philosophy with a "touch of realism." While our curriculum and assessment program align with California state guidelines, we maintain the flexibility to make sure that all children are successful learners.
We do not try to make kids fit a curriculum; our children are viewed, and valued, as individuals.
