For over twenty years West Valley Academy has been guiding students on their journey to achievement.
While the school delivers its curriculum with a myriad of teaching styles and methodologies, it is our fundamental belief that it is essential that students master basic English and Mathematics concepts.
Students must become proficient in the areas of spelling, grammar, composition, reading and reading comprehension, note-taking and study skills as well as mastery in Math.
If these two disciplines are specifically not mastered, it is virtually impossible for students to be truly successful when tackling other subjects within the curriculum.
Our aim is to correct deficiencies and build on students' strengths.
With a 4:1 pupil:teacher ratio, intensity and diligence are hallmarks of our program.
We challenge, encourage and praise our students, and our teaching methods reflect the assumption that there is no substitute for sound learning.
