Our vision is that Crescent Valley High School will nurture students to grow as responsible citizens, engaged learners and prepared for the transition to life beyond high school. In order to reach high levels of achievement and personal success, all individuals within the Crescent Valley community strive to think and communicate effectively, demonstrate integrity, show kindness and be positive role models. Our students also will be self-reliant and able to tackle new challenges with confidence and skill.

We are committed to developing graduates who:

  • Creatively solve problems, access information, and adapt to change.
  • Behave in a respectful manner, being good role models and showing kindness.
  • Demonstrate a passion for life-long learning.
  • Demonstrate integrity.
  • Tackle new challenges with confidence and skill.
