Principal's Message

We opened our 87th year with an enrollment of 2,721 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 a stellar year last year with an all-time high of dual 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, the ELPAC for English Learners, and the Smarter Balanced and CA Science Test for all juniors.

It has been another impressive year for the Tigers with three league championships in the fall from girls golf, and boys and girls cross country. As the winter season comes to a close I am proud to share that our athletes have represented themselves well in their league competition. I wish all the winter sports luck as they head into CIF competition.

Our Activities department is doing a fantastic job of increasing the school spirit this year. They just wrapped up an amazing kindness week on our campus and they are the force behind our school 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 “She Kills Monsters” and are now preparing for their spring play, “Radium Girls”.

As we begin the second semester I want to take a moment to express my pride in 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 be supported in making your goals become a reality.

Go Tigers!
