The Valley School

  • The Valley School was organized in 1970 to provide an educational alternative for students in the greater Flint area.
  • The founders' priorities, which are still of major importance today, include low student-teacher ratio, acceleration for students where appropriate, strong emphasis on the arts, and an atmosphere of religious and ethnic tolerance.
  • Valley has always worked hard to maintain a diverse student body racially, ethnically, socio-economically and geographically.
  • This diversification has enriched Valley students, as they learn to work and play with people who are different from themselves.
