Welcome to Valdez City Schools

  • Valdez City School's mission is schools, parents, and community united in education for life: Instructing, inspiring, and empowering every student in a safe environment. We do this by offering a challenging curriculum across all four schools  - Hermon Hutchens Elementary, Gilson Middle School, Valdez High School, and Valdez Homeschool Program. Students enjoy a rich educational experience from Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade through the collaborative efforts of engaging teachers, administrators, and staff. We strive for excellence through every academic and extracurricular opportunity. 

    Families New to Valdez  - Valdez continues to be the community with promise.  We encourage you to visit our schools and enroll your children. The district office is available to assist with enrollment over the summer months. Beginning in August there will be someone at each of the schools who can assist in the enrollment process.
