Overview
  • About Visitacion Valley Middle School

    The Visitacion Valley Middle School mission is to provide a quality education that empowers students to make a difference in the world. We are committed to Love, Literacy, and Liberation. We work hard to create a positive school climate where students are recognized for their growth.

    Our teachers use Community Building and Restorative Practices. Also, our school is rich in ethnicity and culture. Teachers and students are assigned to academic families that use a variety of innovative technology, cross-curricular writing programs, and project-based and standards-based instruction throughout the year. We focus on equitable teaching practices and encourage student participation.

    To our teachers and staff, joyful learning means that each student is able to maximize his/her abilities and be successful in learning through different learning methods. Our school commits to delivering high quality educational program that addresses individual needs. To do this, we use diverse staff resources and improve student access to high quality programs during the school day and in after-school programs.

    We publish a weekly newsletter to keep parents informed, hold workshops, and offer many opportunities for parent communication and involvement. Visitacion Valley Middle School prides itself in its active role in the community by welcoming parents, families, and community partners to participate on all levels of creating a culturally responsive 21st Century Middle School.
