New Valley is a safe and nurturing alternative learning environment where students are empowered with academic, intellectual, social and emotional skills to better themselves and their community. Our ethical, compassionate staff celebrates diversity and supports students in developing personal goals and realizing their individual potential.


We look forward to another year of academic achievement, community building, and making memories for our students and families.

The Santa Clara Unified School District is pleased to announce the arrival of Naviance, a website that serves to help students connect learning and life.  As stated on its website, "Naviance is a comprehensive college and career readiness solution for middle and high schools that helps align student strengths and interests to post-secondary goals, and improve student outcomes." Teachers will be receiving training shortly and begin familiarizing students with this extremely useful college and career planning website. Students may sign onto the website as follows:


User ID : s(student 6 digit ID number)

Password: first letter of last name in cap, and first letter of first name lower case, followed by 8 digit birthdate mmddyyyy


For example, student Ricardo Montalban, with student ID number 123456, and a birthdate of 2/4/1999 would sign in using:


User ID: s123456

Password: Mr02041999


Please note that Naviance has not formally launched at New Valley but will do so in the near future, however, please feel free to browse the site by clicking the link below:naviance 2B.png




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.
