Dear Parents & Students,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. I am Rick Lopez and I am proud to serve as Principal at Valencia High School, a California Gold Ribbon School. Valencia has a rich history, with our doors first opening to students in 1933. We are guided by our motto of Pride – Tradition -Excellence and apply it to all we do.
With a talented and dedicated staff who is 2nd to none, we provide our students with a wide range of opportunities to excel in academics, athletics, arts, activities, and academic competition. Each of these programs perform at the highest levels and have made Valencia a destination school to students from 175 public and private middle schools in Orange County, California and beyond.
Students come here for the unique opportunities provided including 28 AP courses and 22 IB courses for a total of 50 college level courses available. With pass rates consistently near 90%, students recognize the value of what VHS has to offer in their pursuit of acceptance to the elite universities in the nation. Students also come to access our technology and the wide range of STEM courses in our Val Tech program to prepare them for success in the 21st century. Our AVID program promotes a college going culture on campus and is a tremendous resource to our students. Athletics, performing arts, clubs,and academic competition teams including Academic Decathlon, Science Olympiad, Chemistry Olympiad, FIRST Robotics and Mock Trial, are a source of pride and provide students with further opportunities for involvement.
With high expectations in a nurturing environment, we are committed to our students’ success. So, come to VHS and get involved. Valencia High School is a 2nd home to our staff and students and we look forward to you being a part of our Tiger Family.
We are having our first "night out" fundraiser this Wednesday 8/26 at Yogurtland. See details here.
