Valley Preparatory School is a Preschool–8th grade school located in Redlands, California. It was founded in 1957 as an independent, nonprofit coeducational day school. VPS was established by a group of parents who were interested in providing a challenging academic program to area students who were willing and able to take advantage of a demanding and stimulating experience. In 1982, the school became a fully accredited independent school and a member of the California Association of Independent Schools.

The school is currently in the midst of a three-year implementation of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB-PYP). First established in Geneva, Switzerland, in the late 1960s, the program uses a thematic approach to teaching and learning to organize curricular content and create “connections” across the curriculum. These connections help students develop their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

Within the framework of the IB-PYP, we are also implementing a STEAM program (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics). An extension of STEM-education, STEAM also highlights the importance of the “arts” in helping students develop their creativity and self-expression.

Our school climate fosters character development by encouraging honesty, integrity, self-esteem, respect for others, and responsibility and service to the community. Our student body is comprised of young people from broadly diverse cultures and backgrounds. We believe our students are the center of our educational community and must be encouraged to develop a world-view that extends well beyond their immediate surroundings.

Let the Valley Prep classroom be your child’s window to the world!
