Join us on the Quad for a celebration of the Verde Valley School Garden and our dedication...
An International Baccalaureate World School
Verde Valley School offers a dynamic academic experience informed by the incomparable beauty of our environment and the five principles that have guided our mission since 1948.
Our students are drawn from around the world to share an experience that will inspire a life lived with curiosity and connection. Apply today.
Learning at VVS is anchored by the rigorous IB curriculum, but the broader experience is one of inspiration, discovery and community building.
Beginning with the first graduating class in 1951, VVS alumni have been an integral part of shaping the experience of the students that follow.
We are an independent, IB, boarding & day school for students in grades 9-12
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a challenging curriculum which fosters critical thinking and principled inquiry with the aim of helping students become responsible members of their communities.
The natural beauty of the VVS campus and access to the rugged outdoors allows us to infuse our coursework with our guiding principles – we call it IB+Dirt.
Field Trips + Project Period + Sports + Equestrian VVS Beyond the classroom
Our rigorous academic program is complemented by practical experiential learning that allows students to see beyond the norm, and develop the tools to identify and follow their path in life.
