West Valley Christian School says

West Valley Christian School is in its eighth year of operating in the West Valley (formerly known as Phoenix Christian West Valley) – serving families in Goodyear, Avondale, Litchfield Park and Buckeye. WVCS has over 130 students enrolled in grades K-8 not including our preschool classes. The school has 15 Christian teachers including specialty teachers for Spanish, music, physical education, art, and computers. WVCS teachers are dedicated to providing students with a quality Christian education while developing Christian character and deepening each child’s love for Jesus. We are fully accredited by the ACSI Regional Accreditation Commission.

Curriculum

IXL Math & Language Arts is the online adaptive software program that WVCS uses to help differentiate students. Whether a child needs to be more challenged or provided support at a lower level, IXL allows the student to work in their zone while providing teachers with value feedback regarding the student's mastery levels. This program is a valuable tool to use over the summer as a bridge program and parents are encouraged to log their child in so they can have fun while retaining information over the months off!

Accelerated Reader is the computerized reading management software that WVCS uses as an essential practice component of our reading curriculum. There are three easy steps involved in the process: 1. Students choose AR tagged books to read at their appropriate reading levels. 2. At computers in the classroom, the computer lab, or the library, students take comprehension quizzes on material contained within the books. 3. Students receive immediate information on their performance, with correct responses to questions provided for quizzes which are passed. Teachers consistently receive data pertaining to quizzes passed, average book levels, and comprehension percentages. This feedback allows teachers to personalize instruction and thus enables students to achieve maximum growth. Research has proven that schools which use AR are schools in which state standards are mastered and test scores show improvement.

Mission Statement

West Valley Christian School, in partnership with the family, equips students to discover and develop their talents and spiritual gifts in order to live a life of service, impacting the world for Christ.
