Arroyo Elementary School: The Home of the Eagles
We are excited to announce that Arroyo Elementary School will become the Simi Valley Unified School District's new Dual Language Academy in the 2024-2025 school year! The Dual Language Academy's vision is to empower students to become multilingual global citizens, to take them from here to anywhere.
The Dual Language Academy will launch in the 2024-2025 school year with all Transitional Kindergarten (TK) and Kindergarten classes only. Each year following the program’s launch will see the addition of the Dual Language Immersion classes for the next grade level, until all of Arroyo's grade levels are Dual Language,
Dual Language Immersion (DLI), which is the basis for Arroyo's Dual Language Academy, is a well-established instructional approach for young students to learn their grade-level academic content while also becoming fluent in English and Spanish. A foundational principle of the program is the cross-cultural immersion for all students. With their families’ high-level of involvement, students share each other’s customs, traditions and values.
A dual language immersion program takes native English-speaking students and native Spanish-speaking students and teaches them in both languages. This is done through the close collaboration of bilingual teachers who cover all subjects together. Ultimately, students should achieve competency in both languages.
Students already attending Arroyo Elementary School in grades 1 through 5 will continue on their current educational journey.
All COMPLETE breakfasts and lunches are served free of charge to our students. Information about the program, weekly menus or other concerns is found here.
Launching in the 2024-2025 school year, the Dual Language Academy will start with Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes. More info: HERE.

Welcome to Arroyo Elementary School!
The Arroyo learning community strives to prepare our students to be leaders in their school, their community and their world. We believe that children are born with an innate curiosity to understand their world and we hope that their learning experiences here at Arroyo will encourage and stimulate that curiosity.
Arroyo Elementary School is committed to providing ALL students an enriched integrated academic curriculum to educate the whole child. Students are offered opportunities to learn the skills of leadership and apply them in their daily school life. We believe our FLAGS (Foreign Language, Academics, Global Studies) program will expose students to foreign languages early in their lives, giving them access to the world around them through Global Studies. Ongoing technology training and integration will assist our students to prepare to be connected to the world.
Because children learn through experiences, we link educational goals with hands-on learning projects. Math skills can be taught through real life experiences with art, science, and music. Reading skills can grow from experiences with drama, poetry and non-fiction research material. Physical fitness can integrate athletic skills with timing, measurement, team-building and organization. Additional supports and supplemental extensions for reading and math are provided through our intervention and Title I programs. Learning can be relevant, rigorous and FUN!
We cannot succeed without working together with the parents on common goals. Our Handbook describes behavioral and academic expectations for all students. We have an active PTA that works closely with staff to provide an enriched program. Parents are invited to volunteer in classrooms everyday. Arroyo is a fun, involved center for learning.
