• a The Valley Day School believes that the arts and technology are critical to our mission. Our approach to instruction is to create opportunities in small groups that offer hands-on exposure.  By understanding and participating in our special classes,  students can not only increase self-esteem through their successful participation, but also increase focus and enhance brain development. To this end, we have explicit instruction in Art, Music, Computers, Library Information Science, Industrial Arts, Textiles and Physical Education.
