Dr. Amrik Singh
My name is Dr. Amrik Singh, your principal for the 2021-2022 school year. It is my 11th year at Sacramento Valley Charter school from the day Washington Unified School District authorized it in 2011. The SVCS instantly became popular with the community as it started catering to the educational needs of Sacramento area students in a safe environment. The school registered its name among the 25% of public schools that offered at least one world language starting from Kindergarten. The Indo-European roots of Punjabi language introduce SVCS students to a complex system of sounds comprehension of which accelerates their cognitive, emotional, and personal development. Most students who transition to a high school after 4-5 years at SVCS demonstrate high academic achievement and increased motivation for a college education.
I came to SVCS in 2011 with 20 years of teaching experience both at primary school and the college level. I started my career in Elk Grove Unified School District in 2006. I earned my Teaching Credential and Administrative Services Credential from National University of San Diego. In the same year, I was offered an Adjunct Professor position at Sacramento State University which afforded me the opportunity to work with college students that I continue to enjoy after all these years. I became excited to bring in my two decades of experience as a professor of English language and Linguistics in colleges of Panjab University Chandigarh (India).
I earned a Masters in English and an M.Phil. in Anthropological Linguistics from Punjabi University Patiala, and a Ph.D. in English from Panjab University Chandigarh (India). Continuing my education in the US, I earned a Masters in Special Education from National University, California.
As your principal, I am committed to creating a positive school culture that promotes learning and engagement; that makes possible to provide a rigorous, standard-based curriculum for all SVCS scholars; and that creates a safe and compassionate environment for social, emotional, and intellectual growth of your child.
As administrator, I support an environment of high expectations, outstanding achievements, and good citizenship. I will spare no effort to create a spirit of mutual trust, productive collaboration, and continuous effort to make SVCS a premier institution in the region.
