    Welcome

    • Valley Ranch is a wonderful school filled with many opportunities and learning experiences. As a Project Based Learning (PBL) school, the staff at Valley Ranch believes in engaging students in authentic and relevant learning experiences. This is done by teaching through the lens of PBL. Through this process Valley Ranch students become critical thinkersconsumers of informationinformed researchers and effective communicators. Many learning projects are accomplished as a group which fosters collaborators and informed decision makers. These experiences allow VRE students to create authentic final projects. We are very proud of our students at Valley Ranch. We are the home of the stars and we enjoy watching our students shine!
