    I am graduated from valley this june of 09. I can say I am extremely proud of myself for the effort i put in to recieve my diploma. But I have to thank the teachers and staff of Valley View because without them I wouldn't have made it. The teachers at Valley are soooo cool. They understand you more than anyone other teachers anywhere ) Because of the teachers at Valley I've chosen my career to become a teacher myself. I can say I wasn't that much behind in credits but what i needed i got in only 3 credit checks. I reccommend this school to parents regardless if your child is behind or not. The faster your child gets there credits the faster they're out of there ) Lol. Every one deserves a second chance. Thank you Miss Jenkins

    i graduated from valley in 09 due to being a fifth year. i was suppose to graduate in 08 but i was tremendously behind in credits. i was a sophomore with 43 credits walking into this school. i made up more than 3 and a half years of credits in only 2 and a half and if i really put my mind to it i could have graduated on time. i know i graduated 5 months late than most seniors but i still have the same HS Diploma they have worked for in the 4 years of regular school they went to. i want to thank this school for letting people like us who had problems with early life have a 2nd chance in education which is very unlikely in present days. Thank you Mrs Slater

    Valley View is a great school. It helps you get ahead very easily and I met some of my most helpful teachers there. It helped me get back on my feet and in my opinion is better than regular high school.

    This school is the best Teachers are amazing. In my opinion the teachers at Valley View High School seemed to have understood me more than the teachers of Ontario High. My morale increased I became more independent and I actually became intrested in subjects like Math Science and History(U.S. History Econ and Government)

    I graduated from valley view in june of 07.'I had got a head of my class and was done with school a month before that. I loved valley the teachers helped me a lot. I had a rough senior year but with the help of my teachers and advisor manso i made honor graduate. Valley is the best school in the district. Better than etiwanda!

    Great school for students that need another chance. Exceptional counseling and instructors.

    I have been very happy with my son's progress since he started at Valley. My only regret is that he didn't transfer sooner. The teachers are awsome and care about my son and his work. His self-esteem has improved 100% and he know see's light at the end of the tunnel.

    im starting at valley high school and just going to my orentation today made me feel like the school was a place filled with faculty teachers and students that wanted to meet their personal individualized plans and made me feel like I can achieve my goal of returning to my home school. It felt as if it was a positive enviornment and it was safe. Wipe out your negative views of continuation schools and bring on Valley =]

    Valley View High School gave me more opportunities than my comprehensive high school. I graduated in 2007 from Valley View and was given the honor of being the schools valedictorian at graduation. I also recieved a scholarship in the amount of $200.00 from Valley View and also represented Valley View in the annual San Bernardino County Academic Decathlon. I recieved a trophy for top scorer. Valley View High School has a wonderful curriculum to help out every student and the faculty takes each student and helps them to get to their goal. This school is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

    I came here thinking I wasn't gonna make it being behind many credits required. Valley view gave me a 2nd chance and the teachers here gave me hope. Great school no doubt.

    My student has just attened Valley View for about two months yet I've already seem great improvements. I'd rather choose Valley View over any regular school in the district. Also I've heard Valley was one of the top continuation schools in the state of CA.

    I am a former student and attended Valley in 2002 transfering from the worst school in the district (Etiwanda). I am glad I was refered to this school it gave me 2nd chance. I came back to Etiwanda after 6 months graduated and now attending UCI. Valley is recommended as a cont. school.

    My child started at Valley last March '02 she has made up her missed credits and if she stays on schedule she will graduate early. The school is great for one on one attention. The staff know each child by name the kids do not fall thru the cracks. As with all public schools there are a few teachers that probably shouldn't be teaching but on paper they qualify to do so and at times the measures used for disapline are a bit overboard and excessive for the behavior but all in all I prefer Valley to any of the 'regular' high school in the district.

    I've attended Valley View for about 2yrs and I think of this school very highly. I think this school has its own sense of family. Students and Teachers have a bond of some sort; everyone is thinking and helping each other and helping too make progress. I never knew of a regular high school that can show this success. I've learn to put the judgment the ignorant sign of my 'Ideas' of the average Continuation school. Valley View is a great success and I will always appreciate the second chance I was given.

    I am a student at valley view high school and personally I think that the school is great. I was behind 25 credits when I came in March 2003 and now I only need 80 credits to graduate. Valley is a school where if you put your best foot forward then you can make it happen. To all the students who attend you're doing a good job and keep it up because this might be your last chance. To all the teachers who teach there thank you so much for being willing to take time out with us kids.

    I have a friend that goes to valley View and he failed his freshman year at Alta Loma High School. He is now a junior. He says that he can graduate this year if he got enough credits. I do not think that this is possible because he failed his freshman year. Is that possible? After all he is only 16. he says he will be in college by the age of 17.
