Picture of heart made out of rocks on ground.

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

Principal's Message


Welcome to Pacheco Elementary School! Pacheco has been a dual-language (DLI) program  for the past 25 years and our focus is on developing the proficiency skills of our students’ in two  languages. Pacheco has built a reputation for maintaining a rigorous curriculum taught in both Spanish and English using a 90/10 model. Our team of dedicated educators, both certificated and classified, are passionate about preparing our students for the future as bilingual learners. Our school’s 497 students and our 45 dedicated staff members are proud to call Pacheco “home” because everyone truly feels a sense of belonging.

There are so many benefits that our students receive as a result of having this unique educational experience. In addition to building our students’ proficiency in two languages, our teaching staff is committed to building their cultural awareness and an overall appreciation for learning. Here at Pacheco, we’re also committed to providing opportunities for students to grow and expand their social-emotional needs. We offer students a broad range of activities and programs that further cultivate their desire to learn and respect for one another. Our teachers strive daily to develop connections with each and every student, while also fostering inclusivity.

Another important goal for us is in creating solid partnerships with our parents. It is no secret that a primary factor that makes a positive impact on students' success is when the school and the home work in unison. Our parents/guardians have made a true commitment, not only for their own children, but themselves. We offer many opportunities for parents to become involved in our school community. We’ve made it a priority to keep the communication lines open with the home through on-going messages from our front office and from our classrooms.

If you’d like to learn more about our wonderful school or if you have specific questions, we invite you to reach out to us. You may contact our school office to schedule an appointment or simply send us a quick email, we would be more than happy to speak with you. Thank you!
