Students in secondary program undertake a demanding curriculum intended to prepare them for pursuing higher studies, which uniquely combines the curriculum in line of the government of Nepal and special learning experiences. At Valley View English School all the classes are kept small in size and teachers are always available to help students during and after the class. The special learning experiences include varieties of activities to be pursued as per the individual choices.
FACULTY AND TEACHING METHODS
The school provides 'A' grade- education based on standard curriculum, consistent with the individual academic capabilities and personal and social needs of each student. Periodical exams, assignments and project works are carried out as the regular activities to ensure required progress under strict supervision of the trained faculties. Field trips, project works, and lab works that combine academic activities with real-life learning experiences and opportunities for personal growth make a combined whole of special learning experiences at VVES.
Students are expected to maintain school code of conduct. Violation of school rules may result in disciplinary action. "Behavior Referral Form" is issued to be signed by the parents or guardians and returned to the school. The motto of disciplinary action is to reform the characters of students in order to make him/her a citizen with positive attitude.
EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT

Each child's profile is maintained and referred to parents in all testing periods. Monthly tests are administered and reported to the guardian with details of performance and academic advice needed to the ward. Question papers are designed in both subjective and objective sets. Creative works and presentations are encouraged in evaluation.
Counselors and experienced teachers meet individually with students facing with emotional problems in finding their potentials to help them identify their problems and work towards finding solutions.
