Statement of Beliefs

Mission Statement

At Northern Valley Regional High School District, we provide a safe environment in which each student seeks answers to questions, challenges assumptions, and develops self‐worth.

Recognition of academic and cultural diversity promotes mutual respect and acceptance. Our high schools encourage academic excellence, aesthetic appreciation, and moral integrity. We seek to prepare all students for their roles in a rapidly changing and diverse global community, and to become independent learners, critical thinkers, problem solvers, collaborative workers, and responsible contributors to society.

Education requires a shared commitment. In providing a framework for the immediate and future concerns of our students, we require a constant and critical re‐evaluation of curriculum and course design to keep abreast of global research and new techniques within our respective disciplines. The joint commitment of students, professional staff, Board of Education and community, which supports and complements our mission, forms the basis for a challenging and effective program.
