School Reviews

In fact, I have been a volunteer kindergarten teacher's aide at Calabasas for 10 years. One mistake in your review is that some families pay for lunch. The Pajaro Valley Unified School District offers free breakfast and lunch to all students. The lack of diversity is mainly due to the fact that the Buena Vista Migrant Camp offering free housing to our migrant field workers is near the school. This county on Monterey Bay and adjacent to Silicon Valley is a very expensive place to live. Our field workers are critical to the county's agriculture which accounts for 30% of the local economy.
