About Blue Valley
Blue Valley Schools is committed to providing students an Education Beyond Expectations. A strategic plan focused on personalized student learning and the uniqueness of each student is what the district is most passionate about. Two strategic goals of unprecedented academic success and unparalleled personal growth for every student pave the way through elementary, middle and high school and prepare Blue Valley students for countless opportunities after graduation.
Special programs that allow staff to facilitate a high level of personalization include the district’s Early Childhood Program, Advanced Placement courses, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), K-12 Foreign Language, enrichment and intervention programs, Blue Valley Academy, ACCESS program for students ages 18-21 with moderate to severe disabilities, Wilderness Science Center, and extra- and co-curricular programs. One of the district’s most recent and innovative programs is the Center for Advanced Professional Studies, providing real-world experiences for students in the critical areas of bioscience, international business, engineering and human services.
More than 21,500 students in southern Johnson County, Kansas, attend Blue Valley Schools. When students walk through the doors of a Blue Valley school they become part of a school family thanks to the safe and caring environment created by staff. Student success in Blue Valley is the result of a supportive community, involved parents, quality staff and great students.
Blue Valley is home to 34 schools. There are five high schools (grades 9-12), nine middle schools (grades 6-8) and 20 elementary schools (grades K-5). Every school, grade-level, subgroup and the district have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as outlined by the No Child Left Behind Act for each of the 10 years NCLB has been in existence. Blue Valley is the only district in the nation with more than 20,000 students to make AYP at the district, school, grade and subgroup level for 10 consecutive years.
