Our Vision is to support our students to achieve their educational goals and character development that will allow them to become engaged lifelong learners and critical thinkers beyond the classroom.
About Our School
Village High School is Pleasanton's only Alternative High School. Students attend VHS, for a variety of reasons (credit recovery, small school enviornment, personal relationships with teachers). Village High School fosters a smaller learning environment and focuses on individualizing student needs and creating a community of character. Village has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and received the maximum six-year term.
The Village High campus plays host to students who are engaged in meeting district graduation standards, as well as exploring career interests and focusing on future goals. Instruction is geared to maximize the learning experience for each individual student, and, with a class-size average of 20 to 1, teachers are able to support student learning throughout the curriculum.
Students come to Village for a variety of reasons, but they leave with a healthy respect for themselves, the staff, and the community in which they live.
