Superintendent's Message

Welcome to West Valley School District from the Superintendent

It’s hard to believe that summer is slipping away and that the start of the 2017-18 school year is right around the corner.  Like our students, their parents, and our staff, I am eagerly anticipating the arrival of students on our first day of school. Many of you, like myself,  will undoubtedly mark another year of your family’s history with the start of a new school year.  Whatever the year has in store for us, I can assure you that West Valley will support you and your family in every possible way to insure your student’s success. 


West Valley takes pride in our ability to offer a variety of unique programs designed to meet the needs of each and every student. We are a community of partnerships between students, parents, educators, businesses, churches, and neighbors working together to maximize each student’s educational opportunity. One shining example of the success of these partnerships is the West Valley High School extended graduation rate of 98.8%, which is over 17% above the state average. 


West Valley voters continually support levies that provide our students with high quality fine arts and music programs, state of the art technology, successful athletic programs, extra-curricular activities, an Outdoor Learning Center, field trips, a safe, reliable bus fleet, and well maintained facilities.  This February when we run our Enrichment Levy, we look forward to your continued support.


We believe in partnering with our community to prepare our students for college, career, and citizenship.  We do this by creating unique high-rigor programs that respond to the needs of our students, staff, and community.  We are the West Valley School District.


All my best,

Dr. Gene Sementi
