Principal's Message
Dear Tierra Vista Families,

Welcome to Tierra Vista Elementary School. My name is Denise Adams and I am honored to serve as your new principal for the 2018-2019 school year. I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to return to the school where I began my teaching career over eighteen years ago. It feels great to be coming home!

Our mission in Ocean View is to ensure all students achieve academic success and are prepared to live and learn in a rapidly changing world by providing rigorous and relevant learning experiences and empowering families and staff to work together.

Our goals will be developed on this belief, and we will challenge our students to reach their fullest academic potential by setting high expectations, developing curriculum reflective of the highest standards, and providing a network of support to promote life-long learning and success.

At Tierra Vista Elementary, we follow a set of shared values that guide our beliefs about teaching and learning. We believe that all children can learn and deserve a safe, satisfying, and successful school experience. We know that high expectations for student achievement combined with adequate support and rigorous, relevant first instruction will result in academic proficiency and growth. At Tierra Vista, our focus is to help children learn and grow. To do this, our teaching and professional development must be intentional and purposeful. Cooperation, collaboration, and communication are an important part of our educational success. We believe it is important to model respect and foster a caring school culture where students feel valued and appreciated. Finally, we believe in building partnerships between school, home, and community. Through these shared values and beliefs, students will experience an education that is profound and lasting.

Together, as a community of parents, students, and staff, we will make Tierra Vista Elementary School an institution that everyone can be proud of. We will embrace the challenges of the future and strive for continuous improvement. We invite you to be a part of this process, and experience the learning at Tierra Vista Elementary School.

I look forward to working with you and your student to provide an academically successful school year.
