Principal's Message


We opened our 85th year with an enrollment of 2,755 students. As we are now midway through the school year, I am excited to share with you how our school continues to shine in the areas of Academics, Athletics, Activities, and the Arts.
We provide an unparalleled academic experience here at Valencia and I hope you take advantage of all we have to offer. We are coming off of a stellar year last year with an all-time high of IB and Val Tech diplomas issued. Our academic competition teams continue to shine with Mock Trial, Cyberpatriot, Robotics, Academic Decathlon, and Science Olympiad well underway. Now that our first semester has come to a close we look ahead to spring testing and prepare for AP and IB exams, Smarter Balanced exams for all juniors, the CA Science Test for juniors and seniors, as well as the ELPAC for English Learners.
It has been another impressive year for the the Tigers with four league championships in the fall from football, girls golf, and boys and girls cross country. As the winter season comes to a close we are on the way to securing league championships in wrestling, girls water polo, and boys soccer. I wish all the winter sports luck as they head into league finals and CIF competition.
Our Activities department is doing a fantastic job of leading a campaign of kindness this year. They just wrapped up an amazing kindness week on our campus are they are the force behind this year’s theme of “Tiger Family: Belong, Believe, Become.” Our PBIS team is leading a movement of encouraging students to demonstrate positive behaviors on campus by ROAR-ing all year long.
Our performing arts have had an amazing year with unbeatable programs offered by our Tiger Regiment, Color Guard, Dance Team, All Male Hip Hop Team, Vocal Music, and Orchestra. In the fall our theatre department put on Moon Over Buffalo and are now preparing for their spring musical, Into the Woods.
As we begin the second semester I want to take a moment to say I am so incredibly proud of our school and all that you have accomplished. I want to encourage you to finish the second half of the year even stronger and I can’t wait to see what success we are able to achieve together. Remember, Valencia is where you belong, where you’re believed in, and where you’ll make your goals become a reality.
Go Tigers!
