TEDx Valencia High School Thursday, March 29th, 2018

<b>Catch the stream here.</b> Regardless of personal politics, Valencia High School students are encouraged to be open-minded, critical thinkers – events like TEDx with the theme of “Empowerment” truly opens the door to such a wide variety of talks – talks that will be infused with the personal perceptions that our students bring to the concept.

“EMPOWER” is an open-ended term that deals with motivation – depending on the student, the range of answers is endless. Along with the individual depth of the word itself, teenagers themselves often feel DISEMPOWERED by the world, limited by their age, and this event seeks to eradicate that disempowerment via the public articulation of their personal thoughts. Dialogue is not the enemy of peaceful coexistence, silence is – this event hopes to inspire ongoing dialogue, insight into a variety of students, and EMPOWER audience members to think and possibly act themselves. <a href="">Read more here</a>

Three Valencia students earned perfect scores on their AP Exams in May 2017.

Three Valencia students earned perfect scores on their AP Exams in May 2017.

Naadir Jamal, AP Microeconomics Exam, 1 of 26 perfect scores
Coaminh Le, AP Computer Science A Exam, 1 of 112 perfect scores
Lauren Mard, AP Computer Science A Exam, 1 of 112 perfect scores

As a point of reference, only 511 students in the world earned every point possible on an AP Exam. Only 50 schools had two students with perfect scores and only 13 schools in the nation had three students earn perfect scores.

These extraordinary academic accomplishments are likely a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered by our teachers, Fred Jenkins and Jason Parker.
