Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
It has been an outstanding start to the academic year and I want to thank our students, families, teachers, staff and other partners for continuing to support St. Vrain Valley Schools’ drive for excellence in serving our community and advancing public education.
Dear St. Vrain Resident,
Thanks to a supportive community, highly qualified and committed teachers and staff, and engaged parents, the entire family of St. Vrain Valley Schools is experiencing enormous success.

- Legacy Foundation Advanced Placement Grant ($300,000)
- District named 2012 'Large Business of the Year' by Longmont Chamber of Commerce
- Highest 3rd grade reading scores in our district's history for the past three years
- Numerous John Irwin School of Excellence Awards (Colorado's top 8 percent high performing schools)
- Several Colorado Trailblazer 'School to Watch' Awards
- Numerous Governor's Distinguished Improvement Awards
- Winner - Several Colorado Principal of the Year Awards for district principals
Our entire community benefits significantly when we work together to build and maintain a strong system of public schools.
