Meet the Principal

Hello Bulldog Families!


Buena Vista has provided "Excellence in Education" since 1875. This tradition rests solidly on a professional and caring staff, engaged parents, and motivated students working together to achieve state and district standards. Buena Vista teachers are currently reviewing both CAASPP and STAR testing results and using the information acquired to improve and drive the instructional program. Adults have high expectations for children in their studies and behavior. We will work to meet each child where they are academically, socially, and emotionally. 


At Buena Vista Elementary School, we are dedicated to developing confident, lifelong learners with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the rapidly changing world of the twenty-first century. An effective partnership between home, school, and community empowers students to become socially responsible citizens who effect positive change in our culturally diverse society. Buena Vista Elementary School will continue to provide a safe and learning-focused environment; promote local and national service, and embrace the diversity of our community.


Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can be of any assistance. We are here to help you and, most importantly, to help your child be successful!


Thank you for being a part of our Bulldog community and allowing my team and me to work with your children each day.


Daniel Hansford
