VVSD among State Leaders in Academic Growth
VVSD has recently learned that it is among the leaders in the State in multiple areas of academic growth. Based on our 2016 PVAAS (academic growth) results, we are:
4th in the State (out of 633 schools) in 4-8 Math growth
12th in the State (out of 572 schools) in Keystone Biology growth
Additionally, we are in the top 100 and 150 in the State in Keystone Literature growth and Keystone Algebra growth, respectively.
We are especially excited about these results as we hold academic growth in high regard as it is considered by many to be among the best indicators of teacher and school effectiveness. Congratulations to our students and educators whose hard work made this possible!

VVSD has recently received its 2016 Advanced Placement Exam results. We are excited to announce that 2016 was a milestone year at VV that saw record numbers of students earning a score of 3 or better, a record percentage of test takers scoring a 3 or better, and was the first time that VV students exceeded the percentage of test takers scoring a 3 or better globally. These accomplishments are a credit to our AP teachers and our AP students and their parents. Congratulations! (Note: A score of 3 generally means that the student is qualified to receive college credit for the course.)
VVSD has recently received its results from the 2016 administration of the PSSA. The 2016 PSSA is the second to be aligned to the new, more rigorous PA Core Standards. Therefore, we are now able to make meaningful year-to-year comparisons. We are proud to announce that in the vast majority of areas our students’ performance improved from the previous year. In many cases, such as our Intermediate School’s Math performance, the improvements were significant. We would like to congratulate our teachers, students, and parents for their hard work that made this possible. While we are excited about these improvements, we still have much work to do and have our sights set even higher!
