Valley Charter Schools Home


Thank you for visiting Valley Charter Schools! We are a public independent charter organization founded in 2010 and have two small schools- Valley Charter Elementary with an enrollment of 276 students and Valley Charter Middle School with an enrollment of 300 students.  Our community is diverse by design - our students learn in an environment that reflects the rich diversity of the San Fernando Valley and the wider world.
At VCS we believe that students learn best when they belong to a small and caring community, engage in meaningful and rigorous project-based learning, and develop the academic and social-emotional tools to thrive. Our students are effective communicators, collaborators, self-advocates, and life-long learners.  When you step into a VCS classroom you can feel the joy, the connections, and curiosity.  I invite you to learn more about us and join our community.
Carolyn Yaffe, Executive Director
