No Special Deliveries

Please be advised that "special deliveries" such as flowers, balloons, cookie bouquets, special lunches, etc., cannot be accepted. These items are a disruption in the classroom and pose a safety hazard in the hallways. We cannot hold onto these items until the end of the day and be held responsible if they are damaged or lost. Additionally, these items are not allowed on the school bus.

Also, we cannot accept money deliveries for students at the front desk. The school cannot accept the liability for money delivered to students. If a school/class fee is due, payments can be made at the school bank or our Web Store located on this site. Money can be placed into student lunch accounts at www.myschoolbucks.com.

Finally, pulling students out of the classroom to pick up money, homework and other forgotten items causes a disruption to their education. Except in emergency situations and at the discretion of Administration, students will not be removed from class.

Thank you for your cooperation in these matters.

Parent Survey for Accreditation

Green Valley High School is undergoing accreditation this year. Accreditation is a process which involves an internal review conducted by the school staff as well as an external review conducted by a team of educational professionals who do not work for the school. Other components of this process include documentation of various aspects of the school's operation and surveys of students, parents, and staff members. The purpose of accreditation is to ensure that we are offering an appropriate education that adequately prepares students for life after high school. The link below will take you to a parent survey. We will use those results to develop our action plan for improving our delivery of services to all of our stakeholders. Please take a few minutes to complete this very important survey. We need and value your input.

Minimum Day Information Letter

Greetings from Mr. Kent Roberts

My name is Kent Roberts, and I am the new principal at Green Valley High School. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to serve such a great school community. As the principal at Boulder City High School for the past three years, I know very well what students are capable of when they are raised by supportive parents, nurtured by committed, passionate teachers, and given the tools to reach their potential. Green Valley High School is well known for its tremendous success in developing bright, talented, well-rounded students who excel in every way imaginable. I consider it a great honor to be joining an organization that demonstrates its "Commitment to Excellence" on a daily basis.

I have served in the field of education for over 20 years, beginning as a teacher in Arizona. During my time as a classroom teacher, I have taught a wide variety of subjects, and I have served as a coach or sponsor in numerous sports or activities. For the last nine years I have served as an administrator in the state of Nevada, the last three as principal of Boulder City High School. Boulder City and Green Valley have much in common. Students at both schools are extremely committed to their education and both have teachers, advisors, and coaches who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure the success of the young people in their charge. Both have very supportive parents and communities and so it is no secret that both schools have garnered more than their share of accolades.

Educating a young man or woman is not a singular task. It requires the coordinated efforts of many people and careful planning. We understand that the road to success is not always a smooth one and that we must work diligently to realize our dreams. Although Green Valley has had a great track record of success, it must strive to improve so that graduates have every skill that they need to compete in a fast-moving world. Working together, we can certainly accomplish any goals that we set for ourselves.

Once again, I am very eager to begin the work of helping to push Green Valley High School to even greater heights and to maintain its traditions of excellence and high achievement. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the coming years.

Sincerely,

Kent Roberts

Notice of Student Searches

Students are hereby informed that they will be subject to search when they enter campus after the beginning of the school day. This includes, but is not limited to, unauthorized returns. This notice does not exclude personnel, however, from searching a student at any time should there be reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing.

Valedictorian and Salutatorian Status

Valedictorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the highest grade point average in the graduating class. The highest possible GPA in a class is 4.8. Salutatorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the second highest grade point average in the class. Candidates for the valedictorian/salutatorian designations will be identified at the end of the fall semester of their senior year. This ranking will be based on any and all completed high school credit granting courses, including those courses which receive the weighted grade point average (GPA). This includes 14 classes, 4 (2 credits - 4 Semesters) of which are designated as Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB). Final valedictorian(s) and salutatorian(s) candidacy will be determined upon the completion of all high school credit course work through the eighth semester.

If you feel that you should be considered as Valedictorian or Salutatorian, please discuss this with your Counselor.

Wall of Fame Nominations

Green Valley High School has initiated a Wall of Fame to honor those staff members who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in education and the advancement of student achievement by going above and beyond the daily expectations of being a classroom teacher or a part of the support staff.

We will also recognize outstanding parents and members of the community who have demonstrated our motto, Commitment to Excellence, and have gone above and beyond volunteerism, specifically to our school and community.

If you would like to nominate a staff member, parent, or community member as a Wall of Fame recipient, please click on the link under important links in the right column of the homepage to complete the nomination form.
