The Valley School provides a student-centered learning environment. Guided by rigorous Common Standards, our instructional approach is anchored in science focused, project-based, hands-on learning where students are inspired to make connections between their learning and their community.
The Valley School changes middle schoolers’ lives by fostering a culture of curiosity, creativity and community.
Imagine a middle school where everyone feels a sense of belonging, where students participate in self-directed learning, where they use their voices and skills to make a difference in the world, where they take ownership of their education and participate as engaged citizens, where their work is meaningful and feeds their dreams. Welcome to The Valley School, a leader and innovator in public education.
We believe that the TVS community has a responsibility to consciously support and promote diversity and educational equity. It is our goal to identify inequities, establish equitable policies and promote an open mindset for future TVS students and staff. We believe every student should expect equitable and respectful treatment, have equitable access to educational opportunities, and have equitable access to resources and materials regardless of their identity or characteristics. We believe this is the responsibility of ALL stakeholders, including students, parents, staff, and board members.
