Valley New High School No. 1 is a new Academy High School built on a 5.1 acre parcel acquired in a land swap with CSU Northridge (CSUN) and is located within the CSUN campus. The complex consists of an Administration/ Classroom building, gymnasium, and a multi-purpose room and is constructed on top of a single level parking garage. The classroom building is a 4-story steel construction with steel concentric braced frames as the lateral bracing system. 

The High School’s unique educational focus to direct students into a teaching career shares resources and expertise with CSUN’s teacher training program. Access to CSUN’s facilities helps to offset the small campus footprint.
