The Pine Valley Middle School is located in the southwestern section of San Ramon. They have a student population of about 1,050 students. Walt Disney, Neil Armstrong, Country Club, and Montevideo elementary schools feed to Pine Valley, which feeds to California High School. Originally opened in 1977, the school was rebuilt and reopened in August 2008. Pine Valley was recognized as California Gold Ribbon School in 2015 and California Distinguished School in 2019. They are the proud home of Pumas.


Mission Statement:

Pine Valley Middle School exists to embrace, empower and educate life-long learners.



Vision Statement:

We embrace students by supporting the whole child by understanding the unique needs of middle school students.


We empower students by allowing them to take ownership of their learning so that they can become responsible adults.


We educate students with a variety of learning styles so that we can meet the needs of our diverse community of students.



The After School Sports Program is an ongoing program that offers a variety of sports in five to six-week blocks. There are no try-outs and students are not "cut." Team membership simply requires a desire to play and an appropriate commitment to being a team player. In this post-school program, Pine Valley teams compete against other middle schools in our district.


Program Objectives:

  • Provide an opportunity for students to experience a variety of competitive sports in a safe and supportive environment.

  • Develop fundamental athletic skills that prepare participants for advanced competition.

  • Reinforce life skills of respect, cooperation, and effort in a competitive environment.

  • To have fun and promote school pride.


The Pine Valley School Site Council (SSC) meets at 3:00 p.m. in the school library throughout the year. The group consists of staff, students and parents. Their primary responsibility is to advocate for the success of ALL students and to allocate resources to support that goal. The public is welcome to attend all meetings.


The Pine Valley Ed Fund is a non-profit organization run by a board of volunteer parents dedicated to raising funds to help maintain and improve the quality of education in Pine Valley.


The PVEF has three main purposes:


  • Class Size Reduction: We reduce the average number of students in academic core classes by paying for additional class sections.

  • Technology: Based on input from parents, staff and Site Council, PVEF provides devices that allow our students to research, create, learn and thrive in a technology-based society.

  • Staff Grants: Innovative teaching often requires additional expenses and resources. Providing this funding enables our teachers to further develop the skills of collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving.
