This school year has been a year of tremendous growth and change at New Valley. We have experienced a great deal of success in how we have built the instructional program. We will need your participation next year, as we will be planning for even greater success in 2018-2019.


Parents, please consider joining the School Site Council for 2018-2019. We will be meeting six times during the school year, and your involvement will enable New Valley to support students. Give me a call if you would like more information.


Warmest Regards,

Antonio Vela




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.
