Our school counseling team is committed to Valley High School's mission of creating a supportive community in which every student is prepared in the areas of academic, career/college, and social/emotional development to become a responsible member of a global society. 

  Our school counselors provide students with the knowledge, skills, and tools to be college and career ready. They foster a safe and supportive environment by implementing a data-driven comprehensive school counseling program, evidence-based curricula, and restorative justice practices.
