  • Parents if you need to change the way your child gets home please call the office before 4 p.m.(Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday) OR 3 p.m. (Wednesday) so we can get that message to your child. Any closer to the end of school and we are running into trouble getting the message to the student before they are being excused from their class.
  • More information (including Registration forms) is available at the Enroll With Us page on the district website.
  • Valencia is a uniform school. Please see our Uniform Policy for complete information.

Valencia has PRIDE!

At Valencia Middle School, teachers differentiate instruction to target learning to each student’s level. Students experience project-based learning and use critical thinking to solve problems.

Valencia pushes students to remain actively engaged bell-to-bell through an interdisciplinary approach that ties together the curriculum. Students are encouraged to prepare for high school and college and have the opportunity to visit high schools and colleges to get a feel for what the future holds.

Valencia also offers advanced orchestra, band, percussion, guitar and mariachi and encourages each student to have PRIDE (Positivity, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence).
