On behalf of the teachers and staff of East Valley High School, we are pleased to welcome you as an East Valley Panther. You are an important part of a school community with a commitment to excellence.  The East Valley spirit is also evident in its performing arts areas, academics and student leadership. Credit goes to a superb staff, a fine group of students and many involved parents. WELCOME! You are going to love being a Panther! The school Mission Statement is as follows:

 East Valley High School is committed to excellence in education. We believe a child is the most important resource on earth.  We further believe each child has a mission to share with humanity and needs a wide and varied knowledge base to fulfill that mission.  Therefore, we at Legacy aspire to challenge students to greatness.  We dedicate ourselves to strong academics, leadership training and an enriching arts program in a safe and structured environment.  With this base for success, students will learn to love life, liberty, and learning.

In support of this Mission, our goals are:

East Valley HS maintains a clean, moral, nurturing atmosphere where students can feel safe in a positive environment.

East Valley HS encourages the mastery of primary skills in the fields of reading, math, language arts, literature, grammar, history, science, music, physical health and the arts.
