Our task at Valley High School is to provide learning opportunities for students that empower them to become responsible, ethical citizens who are both academically and technologically adept. We also require students to employ complex thinking skills in order to solve problems as individuals and as group members. Lastly, we strive to find opportunities that will enhance students' ability to participate in, and contribute to, a culturally diverse society.
