At Valley School, we live and breathe our Valley Core Values each day.

Driven by the school’s mission, the Valley Core Values are designed to foster students’ character development skills. They provide focused direction and a common language for important initiatives, like the integration of social-emotional learning (SEL), throughout our academic and extracurricular programs. Meaningful conversations and developmentally-appropriate activities help students come to understand the importance of the Valley Core Values for our school community—and for themselves, personally. As teachers, administrators, and staff model behaviors in alignment with the Valley Core Values, students learn how they can embody these values through their actions, making for a better world for us all.

We Cultivate Wellness

At Valley School, we are committed to cultivating wellness. We support all community members as they create their foundation for physical and emotional well-being. Individuals learn best when they grow in an environment that gives them an opportunity to develop a well-grounded sense of confidence, a persistent spirit of optimism, and an engaged open mind.

We Seek Wisdom

At Valley School, we are committed to seeking wisdom. We learn in a flexible, hands-on, intimate setting where the process of acquiring knowledge through individual pathways is equal to the content absorbed. It is our goal to encourage a growth mindset and to establish a community where stretching minds is the norm. In our pursuit of knowledge, we learn that the purposeful application of wisdom defines character.

We Embrace Integrity

At Valley School, we are committed to embracing integrity. In the classrooms, around the playground, upon the stage, on the sports fields, and beyond the school walls, we work to instill within every community member the highest levels of ethical behavior, such as kindness, honesty, respect, and responsibility. We seek to balance personal excellence and humility in our day-to-day interactions. With integrity we function successfully and cohesively as a community.

We Build Community

At Valley School, we are committed to building community. To grow as individuals and as a school, we collaborate to reach our collective goals and support one another in the pursuit of personal goals. We strive to build relationships within our walls and to nurture connections with our extended community. Through knowledge of self, empathy, and service, we work together to create a culture that is inclusive and fulfilling.
