We are happy to announce this site is currently being updated and overhauled during the 2014-2015 school year. We are working on improving the site in order to provide better communication with parents and the community regarding the great programs, events, and services offered at our school  Additionally, we are also working to incorporate our unique method of earning credits into schoolloop's electronic gradebook system. This will give parents the ability to view their students current progress and grades.


Please bear with us throughout this process. We are sure you will be pleased with the results!

Celebrate Latino Heritage Month, 9/15 - 10/15

We are celebrating Latino Heritage Month.  Today we are going to tell you about Illeana Ros-Lehtinen. Illeana Ros-Lehtinen is the first Hispanic woman to be elected to the U.S. Congress. She represents Florida’s 27th Congressional District. Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1952, Ros-Lehtinen and her family came to Miami, Florida, when she was eight years old. Ros-Lehtinen began her career as a teacher. She became inspired to fight for a stronger educational system, lower taxes, and a brighter economic future for the students and parents in her district. Ros-Lehtinen says that education is a lifelong journey. “Education is the great equalizer.” She says, “My parents were always believers that education was the way to get ahead and that if you study hard, your dreams will come true.” Viva la Raza!


Under the guidance and direction of the multi-talented art teacher, Ms. Jensen, New Valley students' creative gifts are nurtured and developed, allowing self-expression through various forms, as can be seen in the slideshow above.
