Our special education schools for children with emotional and developmental challenges operate in close partnership with our local communities and our residential treatment services.
The specific academic needs of each student are addressed through the Individualized Educational Planning (IEP) process, with strong emphasis placed on the child's academic achievement, vocational readiness, positive school experiences and quality of life. Students are referred to North Valley Schools by Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPA's) or by the local County Office of Education.

North Valley Schools are the education programs operated under the auspices of Victor Treatment Centers. North Valley School (NVS) is WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited and certified by the State of California Department of Education. North Valley School's mission is to provide a successful, comprehensive, and therapeutic educational program. It is designed to educate special education students whom have been unsuccessful in the regular education environment utilizing state standards based driven curriculum. It provides educationally based behavior intervention case management, positive behavior interventions and supports for its students. NVS provides a high staff to student ratio with one to one staff capability. The school environment is enhanced by a certified Day Treatment Program that is integrated into and beyond the school day.
