Helping Students Find Their Wings Since 1972
Our mission at Hidden Valley Middle School is to cultivate knowledge, to promote civic responsibility, to provide opportunities for the exploration of interests and abilities, to foster positive attitudes, and to develop essential skills necessary for all students to become productive citizens capable of thriving in the dynamic world of the twenty-first century.
Let’s GO GREEN!
Students, mark your calendars for our next after-school social – Friday, March 17th! We're going GREEN to go along with St. Patrick’s Day! It’ll be an afternoon of music, games, and food with your friends!
- What: St. Patrick’s Day Social
- Where: HVMS Gym
- When: Friday, March 17th
- Time: 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
We’ll have a LIVE DJ playing music, games set up to play, pizza and chips to munch on, photo areas, and more!
Students may purchase tickets during lunches all week. Tickets are $10, and that includes admission as well as snacks. Parents/guardians, if you know you need to pick your student up before 5:30 p.m., please make those arrangements with your student before the social begins.
All parents/guardians picking up their children at 5:30 p.m. should park in the main parking lot and wait for their students in the lot. No one will be allowed to use the car rider line since we will have many students leaving the building at once and want to make sure they can get into the parking lot safely. Please make sure you arrive promptly at 5:30 p.m. to pick up your students. Traffic can be heavy when leaving, so please be patient once you pick up your student!
Want to purchase some school spirit wear? Please visit the link below to shop at our school store. A portion of all proceeds comes back to the school!

Just-in-time tutoring provides students in grades 6-12 with an immediate online live tutor 24 hours per day/7 days per week. If a student is struggling with independent work, they can get immediate help to get them “unstuck,” even if they are at home late at night.
