Valley Regional High School

Valley Regional High School (VRHS) is located in Deep River, Connecticut, United States. It serves the three towns of Regional School District #4 - Essex, Chester, and Deep River.

Since 2006, the school has had a high turnover in administrative leadership. In April 2011, Kristina Martineau was selected as the school's new Principal, making her the fifth principal in six years at the high school. Additionally, the selection of music teacher Matt Talmadge in that year as Associate Principal marked the third person to hold that position over the same period.

Despite this turnover, in its 2011 edition, Newsweek magazine named Valley Regional as one of "America's Best High Schools," ranking 334th out of 500 nationally.

Famous quotes containing the words high school, school, high and/or valley:

    Young people of high school age can actually feel themselves changing. Progress is almost tangible. It’s exciting. It stimulates more progress. Nevertheless, growth is not constant and smooth. Erik Erikson quotes an aphorism to describe the formless forming of it. “I ain’t what I ought to be. I ain’t what I’m going to be, but I’m not what I was.”
    Stella Chess (20th century)

    And so they have left us feeling tired and old.
    They never cared for school anyway.
    And they have left us with the things pinned on the bulletin board.
    And the night, the endless, muggy night that is invading our school.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    We want our children to become warm, decent human beings who reach out generously to those in need. We hope they find values and ideals to give their lives purpose so they contribute to the world and make it a better place because they have lived in it. Intelligence, success, and high achievement are worthy goals, but they mean nothing if our children are not basically kind and loving people.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)

    Over the mountains of the moon, down the valley of the shadow. Ride, boldly ride, the shade replied, in search of El Dorado.
    Leigh Brackett (1915–1978)
