Leaving a Healthy Life at Valley Day School

    The mission of the Valley Day School is to teach students the tools they need to lead a healthy life.  

    We pursue this mission by incorporating evidence-based best-practices throughout our organization so that VDS-enrolled students receive FAPE and IEP-fulfilling education in a safe, structured, and supportive trauma-informed learning community.

    Each day, our trauma-informed staff combines a comprehensive understanding of neuroeducation with cutting-edge educational technology, to provide students with the skills, tools, strategies, and experiences they will need in order to make healthy choices and to lead healthy lives both within and outside school.   

    We provide VDS students with a secure environment --- where they can feel physically, socially, and emotionally safe while learning to understand their own experiences and productively change the way they respond to such experiences.
