    Valley New School is amazing! I am a current student here and wouldn't change VNS one bit.

    As a parent do you wish you could be more involved with your child s educational process? Do you wish you could assist with what they learn and where they get their information? Do you want your child to be better prepared for the work environments of the future where it will be more important to know where and how to gain knowledge and less about having all the facts memorized? Then Valley New School is for you. Students learn from a variety of subjects and in a variety of different ways. Students work at their own pace and learning style for each subject. So if your child is accelerated or delayed in math they can work with a program that moves as quickly or slowly as they are learning or choose from a variety of math classes offered at traditional schools in the district or create their own plan. Many students are admitted to their first choice of colleges by planning their own education because they have learned how to demonstrate their knowledge. They have great communications skills from many interactions with sources outside of the classroom event nights in which they demonstrate their knowledge and the reports and papers they write for each project.

    If you want your children to work the fast food chain for the entirety of their life send them here. Children attending Valley New School sit behind a desk all day doing whatever they feel like.Students choose their projects and the literature they read for the year. This means if your child is lazy they will end up reading something far from educational. There is one science class taught at the school every year.This class is taken by ALL grade levels 7-12.If your child is advanced in the sciences he or she should not be going here.Most students striving for a better education end up taking the majority of their classes at other schools while attending VNS. The teachers or rather advisors who "guide" the students through there projects don't have the ability to properly edit the students papers. All of the papers I have seen have had a tremendous amount of errors. this school at the and of the day is not worth looking into you will end up wasting your time.

    I have been enrolled at VNS for the past 3 years and I have to say that it has been a wonderful experience compared to a normal public school setting. The advisors are always helpful to every request and they make sure that no student is left behind no matter the situation. We have Math various Music programs A library Reading time Art and Chemisrty to name a few things. Other than Project time the other classes are usually run by students or advisors. Overall I am pleased with this school.
