It has been over 60 years since Babs
and Ham Warren’s dream of
directing students towards the adventure in experiential and
intercultural education which is Verde Valley School began. VVS
is a place where young people learn how to think for themselves,
and are encouraged to become intellectually curious,
academically accomplished and creatively expressive.
At VVS, citizenship and courage and a commitment to the
improvement of the world are our standards.
We encourage the daily appreciation of our guiding principles:
Academic Excellence • The
Value of World Citizenship • Service to Others
Environmental Stewardship • The Value of Physical Labor

and Ham, and permanently mark your place at VVS for generations
to come, we have started the
Gretchen Warren Chapel

set in the ground on the floor of the Chapel for all who enter
