I have been a student at Valley Oaks from 7th through 12th grade. I enjoy the small class sizes, friendly students, and knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend it to any student!

VOCHS has given me the opportunity to build my educational foundation on solid ground while allowing me to study neuroscience in breadth and depth. I have been allowed to be a true individual in this environment. I have found that my voice has always been heard and that I have always been respected as a student. I have been encouraged to pursue my interests, passions and take accountability in my education. Being neurodiverse, I have always felt supported, but assured of my own abilities.
I love Valley Oaks, everyone is so close it like family! I would like to have more sports teams. But its an amazing school
