Our Mission: 

​The mission of Valley Community School (VCS) Atwater is to provide a safe and encouraging atmosphere where staff, students, family, and community members work together to create a learning environment where all participants develop a desire for personal growth and life-long learning. Located on an enviromentally friendly campus, the VCS Atwater campus is the newest of the VCS group of schools. We aim to provide our students with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to reach their full potential as citizens who can successfully meet the challenges of a changing global society.
