Victor Valley Union High School District

About Victor Valley Union High School District

The Victor Valley Union High School District serves approximately 11,000 students in grades 7-12 in the cities of Victorville and Adelanto, CA.

VVUHSD serves the Victor Valley region of Southern California’s Mojave Desert, situated about 80 miles northeast of Los Angeles, with a diverse population of roughly 400,000 inhabitants.

VVUHSD is the region’s first high school district, established in 1915. Its flagship school, Victor Valley High School, was the area’s only high school until 1967 when neighboring Apple Valley built its own (with other nearby cities later doing the same).

Today, VVUHSD has three comprehensive high schools (Adelanto, Silverado and Victor Valley high schools); two schools of choice (Cobalt Institute of Math and Science and University Preparatory School); one junior high (Hook Junior High School); one grade 7-12 academy (Lakeview Leadership Academy); one virtual academy (Victor Valley Virtual Academy); and two alternative schools (Goodwill High School and Victor Valley Adult School).

The district employs over 900 staff members, led by Superintendent Dr. Ron Williams, who has served in that role since 2014. The district is governed by a five-member Board of Trustees elected every four years. As of 2020, the board consists of Jose Berrios, Caleb Castaneda, Barbara Dew, Penny Edmiston and Joshua Garcia.

The board, superintendent and staff strive each day to realize the district’s mission:

“As the unifying agent of our community, steeped in more than a century of commitment to student achievement, the Victor Valley Union High School District will provide students a high-quality education in a safe environment, cultivating skills necessary for success through the promotion of integrity, creativity and collaboration, inspiring them to reach their full potential and become productive global citizens.”

“I really enjoyed being a part of growing with the students. I got to build a good relationship with plenty of the students which allowed me to inspire the students into going to college. All of the children there were struggling in theirs studies and failing classes. I remember being their age and it was much easier to take advice from someone closer in age. So the students bonded with me wonderfully because I was just in their shoes.”
