Only in its third year, this school continues to improve. Academics are a primary focus with a high percentage of students college bound. Parental involvement continues to be very strong with excellent two-way communication between the administration/faculty/staff and parents. Problems with student discipline are generally minor and are handled in an integrated manner involving all parties concerned. The school is electronically wired with all students in 9th through 11th grade supplied with laptop computers. Approximately 20% of the student body is involved in the band program (including symphonic, orchestral, jazz and marching bands plus instrumental ensembles). Participation in chorus, theatre, dance, mass communication and the fine arts continues to grow. Hidden Valley has a well-rounded focus on sports including football, basketball, tennis, swimming and diving, golf, softball, baseball, wrestling, track and field, soccer, lacrosse, archery, and frisbee. Other activities include honor societies, language clubs, intramural sports, forensics and drama, cheerleading.
