Welcome to Valley Mills Independent School District. I am thrilled to be Superintendent of a school district where academic excellence is expected, extra-curricular programs flourish, and students are held accountable and given the opportunity to be well-educated. This year begins my 20th year in education and my third year in Valley Mills ISD. I am excited about the opportunities we will have over the next several years to build programs and facilities to meet the growth of our district and the needs of our students. As a community we have a small town atmosphere with a progressive educational system. We pride ourselves on creating a family environment for our students and staff. The Valley Mills ISD school board, administration, faculty, and staff are dedicated to our mission. The commitment to the 610 students who grace our hallways remains constant: To educate our students to the highest levels of academic achievement and enable students to become successful in a global society. We are passionate about student success and it is my hope that our commitment to students is evident in all we do.  

We provide an excellent academic and extracurricular environment that demands our students work hard to become the best they can be. We are investing a great deal in technology and all of the resources it takes to help ensure your child reaches their fullest potential. While we take pride in small class sizes and individualized educational opportunities, Valley Mills ISD offers a variety of activities and programs to enhance the educational experience. Students are able to showcase their individual talents in various athletic programs, agricultural science, FFA, family and consumer science, theatre, art, and award winning band program.

I am excited to see what the future holds for our school district.  Our community supports our schools through various hard-working and generous booster clubs that provide our students with everything they need to be successful. I invite you to become a part of our incredible community and school district. This is a great place to raise a family and educate your children. Again, thank you for visiting and please feel welcome to contact me personally at mike.kelly@vmisd.net if I can answer questions or assist with more information about our school district. I also invite you to follow our campus Facebook pages as we send school updates and highlight the many successes of the students of Valley Mills ISD. 

Again, on behalf of the school board, staff, and students, I thank you for your interest in our school district and encourage you to use our website and district Facebook pages to learn more about the accomplishments of our students and the pride that is evident throughout our school community. 

Warm regards,
