Valley High School is an alternative, continuation high school, part of the Escondido Union High School District in Escondido, California. VHS has nearly thirty to fifty new students every month.[1]


Response-Ability Training Program (RTP) is a forty-hour program that newly enrolled students are required to attend before becoming full-time students, and before receiving a class schedule at Valley. The training program teaches basic requirements, such as: personal responsibility, respecting others and always coming to school prepared. RTP renews every four-weeks with new students and has been taught by Steve Atwood, a teacher, for over twenty-five years.[2]
