What Makes Valencia Unique?
L. I. O. N. S.
Learning - We at Valencia have a unique style of learning. Our teachers utilize small group instruction in Language Arts & Math classes to support our learners. This style allows teachers to evaluate students'' learning strengths and tailor lessons to meet the needs of each learner. Some students struggle to participate in front of the entire class during whole group instruction. The one-on-one attention students receive from small group instruction activities can boost students' confidence who may have difficulty joining in a conversation or sharing their ideas. What a great way to make learning happen for all students!
Imagining - All students at Valencia are encouraged to imagine what their success story is and will be! Learners must remember to visualize success, fuel it with positive feelings, and continue that process until it becomes a habit. Our teachers and staff refuse not to underestimate the most potent success tool in our students' resources, their imagination!
Obtaining - Students at Valencia will obtain success; for us, it is NOT an option! Valencia students will receive their success by following these 11 steps, which will be encouraged and supported by not only their classrooms teachers but ALL of our support staff as well:
- Setting good daily habits
- Regularly setting goals
- Daily self-improvement engagement
- Taking care of personal health
- Making time for individual relationship building
- Completing tasks
- Having positive attitudes
- Learning how to reject negative attitudes

Newcomer - Any student who joins our Valencia family is a newcomer to America's teaching and learning system. We take a different approach to teaching and learning to support any child in need of language acquisition. Students who enroll at Valencia will attend this immersion and will find success in all areas.
Success - One success often results in another victory. All students at Valencia will experience SUCCESS! As we use a specialized curriculum to support language development, students will have the ability to move through language levels and progress through their individualized data. Teachers will use specific and actionable data that tells the teacher where a student is, why, and the sequence of skills/behaviors they need to learn next to accelerate their reading growth, which creates SUCCESS!!
