Mr. Ricoy

Greetings to all our Vieja Valley families!

We have been having a great school year.  Vieja Valley is a warm and embracing community.  From the front office that will greet you with a cheery hello to our classroom teachers receive the students the excitement of learning for a new day.  The experience at Vieja Valley is positively unforgettable. can vouch for that as I have experienced it first hand.  There is a tradition of excellence here at our school and it is my privilege to work here in this wonderful community.

Before coming to Vieja Valley, I was the principal at a charter school in Pine Mountain Club, CA.  I have also had the opportunity work as a vice principal and a classroom teacher working with students from Kindergarten age to High School age.

My wife, Sonia, my daughter, Sequoia, and I live in Carpinteria.  I am encouraged daily by the families, students and staff I get to work with each day.  If I have not had the privilege of making your acquaintance, please stop by the office to say hello.
