I’m one of the newest members at Valentine, but it hasn’t taken me long to figure out something really important. Thanks to the commitment and dedication of our collective educational community, Valentine students have a wonderful school to attend every day. We take our responsibility to provide a safe, enriched, and rigorous learning environment seriously; always striving for excellence. Our shared belief that every child has the right to learn drives us to search out innovative, researched-based practices that unlock learning for all students. We know that students learn and grow when they have regular opportunities to solve problems, share their thinking, work collaboratively, and develop creatively. These practices form the foundation for the high quality education we believe all our students need to unlock their greatest potential. It’s an incredibly challenging, exciting, and worthy endeavor and each stakeholder is crucial to Valentine’s success.
