Mission Statement

The Valparaiso middle schools provide a positive, safe, and nurturing environment where students are empowered to take an active role in their own education and to reach their potential. We believe all students… need to be provided a solid academic foundation which includes communication, research, and technology skills… need skills to adapt, compete, and continue learning in an ever-changing society…need to feel valued and respected as individuals with diverse experiences and backgrounds while developing character, citizenship, and responsibility.
