Sam Valles, Principal

Welcome to Houston Elementary, home of the Huskies!

We have proudly been a part of educating young learners in Gilbert for over 30 years.  My name is Sam Valles and I am honored to be principal of Houston. Our school is a diverse community of students in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade where our mission is to Inspire, Challenge and Educate all students to achieve their full potential as lifelong learners. We emphasize community, academic and personal growth, and accept no limits on student learning. We welcome support and involvement from parents and the community. We know it takes a village. Thanks for choosing to be a part of our “pack”.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
