Principal's Message

Welcome to Pacheco Elementary School, a thriving two-way dual immersion bilingual school, where students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a multicultural, bilingual environment which truly prepares them to become global citizens. Apart from our unique bilingual academic program, our school boasts a community of open minds and open hearts.  Being able to communicate with people from different cultures on a regular basis is at the heart of our program and empowers our youth while showing them how rich life can be.

Since our school is a school of choice, our teachers, staff, parents, and students have a true desire to be here, are dedicated to our vision and mission, and contribute fully to our community - inside and outside of the school walls. I have worked in some incredible places, but I’ve never had the privilege to work with staff as dedicated, passionate, and talented as the Pacheco staff.  Pacheco Elementary School is an inclusive, joyful, positive school, which focuses on academic rigor, cultural richness, and social/emotional wellness. I feel honored to be a part of this amazing school community.  

Pacheco is known for its family-like atmosphere and community celebrations, with many opportunities for parents to be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the school.  We have strong PTA and ELAC groups, as well as a structured volunteer program.  This provides a variety of options for parents to interact directly with staff and connect with other families.  

We’re excited to have you join the Pacheco Family table, where there is always room for one more!  I look forward to meeting you and your family.

One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.
