History of SuccessTop of Page

The district and school were founded In 1925. Vina Elementary School District unified with Los Molinos School District in the mid-1960s and is now one of 5 schools in the district. Vina serves students in first through eighth grades in the original, historic school building. A modern, portable building, which serves as our library, computer lab, and resource center was added in 2002. As part of the grounds, there are two baseball diamonds, a multipurpose soccer and football field, and two basketball courts. There is a designated play area for primary grade children.
The staff collaborates well and works together with a high level of professionalism, dedicated to the achievement of students. Vina students benefit from a standards-based curriculum focusing on high academic achievement and strong character development. Individualized instruction is part of every instructional day.
Vina's history of success would not be possible without the efforts of all staff, community and students. We are proud to give the students at Vina Elementary a well-rounded education including, academics, the arts, and athletics.
