Principal's Message
To the Valley View High School Parent's and Students,

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Valley View High School, let me be the first to say that we are ready to begin the new school year for 2018-2019 and anticipate a year of academic success for all students. Whether you are a returning to Valley View for sophomore, junior or senior year, or whether you will be starting your freshman year, please know that we have great expectations for your success in the classroom. We will strive to inspire you to push yourself to exceed the goals you have made for yourself this year.

We encourage you to do three things very well this year. First, we want you to make sure you are in school every day. We know how ambitious, talented and successful you will be and having you here each day is essential to your success. Second, get involved in an extracurricular activity this year - performing arts, one of our many clubs, or one of our many athletic programs. Being part of something bigger than yourself will inspire you to great accomplishments and great habits. Finally, set your goals to the highest standards - nothing is impossible if you are committed to working hard and achieving the goals you've set for yourself. Valley View High School is known for its talented students and their successes. Cougar Pride runs deep in our community and we have no doubts about your success.

We look forward to the start of school and wish you all the best of success this school year.

Mr. Christopher Mendicino, Principal
