The Crimson Regiment marching band has made notable achievements in the past, such as; placing 3rd in the 1999 WBA Championships in the 5A (the highest class) and taking Sweepstakes in both the parade and field show competition at the 2000 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The program underwent changes after the 1999-2000 season. The Crimson Regiment also performed at 2004 Nokia Sugar Bowl. The Crimson Regiment won the title of AAA Champions in the WBA circuit in 2004. More recently, this award winning band has unfortunately been in decline. Membership has dropped, and the band now competes at a AA class competitive level. The Crimson Regiment did not compete in the 2008 WBA finals.
Valley View High School also has a notable R.O.P (Regional Occupancy Program) Floral class that has been on the campus for many years and has started the Eco Club program which has collected cans and bottles and donated the money from the bottles to children in Africa.
