    Welcome

    • Valley Ranch is a wonderful school, filled with many opportunities and learning experiences. As a Leader in Me school, the staff at Valley Ranch believes in engaging students in authentic leadership opportunities and relevant leadership experiences. This is done by teaching through the lens of the 7 Habits which includes the following:
       
      *Be Proactive
      *Begin with the End in Mind
      *First Things First 
      *Think Win -Win
      *Seek First to Understand 
      *Synergize 
      *Sharpen the Saw 
       
      By using these habits daily, VRE learners gain lifelong habits. Finding your voice is the last habit that is practiced throughout VRE through student led leadership roles. Student engagement is seen throughout the school. as learners passionately lead in various areas. We are very proud of our leaders at Valley Ranch where we empower learners with leadership and life skills. We are also the Home of the Stars, and we enjoy watching our students shine!
