From the Head of School
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Cliff Valley School. As the Head of School I'm pleased to introduce you to the Cliff Valley community, a community that comprises students, parents and educators who are passionate about learning. Our mission is to provide outstanding education focused on children’s academic and social development in a caring community environment, and we are particularly serious about the descriptor outstanding.
While a website can provide a glimpse into a school community, nothing compares to seeing and experiencing a school in person. I have an opportunity to see our outstanding programs and our mission in action every day, and I invite you to experience it for yourself.
