Welcome to Jurupa Valley – Ina Arbuckle Elementary
At Spectrum Jurupa Valley, we strive to change the direction of children’s lives using quality research-based methods of academic instruction, Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS), Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), direct instruction in social skills, and an increased focus on the development of the communication and life skills necessary for our students to grow and thrive as independent individuals. We see the families of our students as invaluable partners in their education and development and pride ourselves on involving families in their child’s school through open communication and shared goal setting. We offer personalized education to suit the needs of each child though developing and monitoring student-specific IEP goals, and through providing each student with a small class size and an increased number of educators in each classroom giving each student more daily interaction and individualized attention than is often not available at other schools. Spectrum Jurupa Valley also offers a Sensory Playroom full of fun, engaging equipment that helps students meet their sensory needs and improve their ability to socialize and play with others, as well as providing them with an opportunity to work on large and fine motor skill development. Our dedicated and passionate staff includes teachers who are Education Specialist, Instructional Assistants who have all received training on Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), Behavior Coordinator and Behavior Specialist who support our classroom staff and students in developing appropriate behavioral strategies, and a Program Director (or School Principal) who oversees the campus.
