Congratulations to Golden Valley Alumnus Noah Oppenheimer.  We would like to recognize his accomplishment as a national Merit Scholar.  He is a senior at Sacramento Waldorf School and was in Ms. Smith's class grades 1-8.
Here are a few words from Ms. Smith about Noah:

Meet Carol Evans from the central office. She has been part of the Golden Valley community since its inception, in 1999. She is a parent of two Golden Valley Alumni. She began working for Golden Valley in 2008 and is the current Business Systems Representative. She has had many roles over the past 19 years. 

Golden Valley Charter Schools will celebrate its 20th anniversary next Fall. We would like to highlight the Golden Valley Orchard School’s Eagle’s Nest Morning and After Care Assistant, William Trumbull. William is a Golden Valley Charter School alumnus and was in the first Kindergarten through Eighth grade graduating class of 2008. William’s signature is hand carved in the back of the original sign of Golden Valley Charter Schools.

William also was part of the first graduating class at George Washington Carver High School.  Over the past three year, William worked as an assistant in the Eagle’s Nest Program as well as in the Golden Valley summer camp program. William learned graphic design skills from his classes at IADT, International academy of art design and technology, and the Art Institute of California. He currently is taking classes at Folsom Lake Collage. READ MORE…
