This spring, Valley Middle School of STEM will begin an extensive remodeling project. Nearly every classroom and bathroom will be completely renovated and the media center, cafeteria, main office and student commons will undergo a complete makeover. We are excited to continue the STEM programming and inquiry focused education in a building that has been designed and remodeled to maximize student engagement. Read more here.


Educating a Global Community of Innovative Thinkers is the mission of Valley Middle School of STEM. It is a diverse community of engaged learners who are working to build skills, knowledge and attitudes to live a life that matters. Students cultivate their natural curiosity in a collaborative setting designed to produce and share their learning with the rest of the school community.
