Principal's Message

Thank you for visiting our web site and learning more about our school. Valley Charter Middle School is a unique, special place to teach, learn, and grow. We are founded on the constructivist philosophy of education, which states that students learn best when they build on their prior knowledge and experiences to create new connections. We pair this philosophy with problem-based learning, which allows students to truly demonstrate their mastery of concepts. Our school is a collaborative place, where students are expected to work with peers, where teachers are given time to plan with colleagues, and where administrators work as a team with other school stakeholders to develop the best possible educational program for our students. I feel fortunate to be a part of this remarkable community. Please do not hesitate to contact me with comments or questions about our school.
