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.
Vision & Values
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.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At TVS, we embrace diversity and value differences. We continually learn, grow, question, and partner with our community to implement more equitable and inclusive practices and policies. We are aware that students’ identities such as race, class, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, immigration status, and abilities predict future opportunities for our children. Therefore, we work to break down barriers to ensure the safety, support, and sense of belonging for every child every day. We know every individual brings unique perspectives and contributions that add value to our school community. We believe it is the responsibility of all stakeholders, including families, students, staff, board, volunteers, and our community partners to support this vision with an open mindset and willingness to improve.
The Valley School changes middle schoolers’ lives by fostering a culture of curiosity, creativity, and community.
