Philosophy

I believe education is the road to opportunity and all of our students are provided with numerous possibilities as they travel through their four years at Golden Valley High School. I believe in excellence and every program we offer strives to be the best program in the area. I believe our students benefit when we work together with parents and the community to provide a top-notch and rewarding educational experience for each of our students. I know we have a staff that is very talented which allows us to provide students a wide variety of activities and academic programs and focuses our students as they navigate down their road to success.
