VISION A Beacon dispelling ignorance! Illuminating the path to knowledge, MOTTO Education for Empowerment and Excellence HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE The "Spotlight" was beamed on the tranquil, suburban community of Spot Valley. Spot Valley High School was instituted. The awesome responsibility of pioneering what was to become a dynamic, robust, institution of learning rested squarely on the shoulders of a school board, a skeleton staff and three hundred and twenty (320) expectant grades 7 and 9 students.  FORMER PRINCIPAL- (2005- 2013) Ms. Doreth Chambers, J.P. AT PRESENT The curriculum has broadened to create new pathways and opportunities for students with diverse abilities to gain successes. We have come a long way now celebrate as our students gradually gain mastery of external examinations. The Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and the Technical Advanced Programme(TAP) are reaping rewards. With pride we track our students who are successfully pursuing tertiary education, are in skills training Centres or gainfully employed. We feel a sense of triumph as our students amass medals and trophies from sports, culture and other co-curricular activities. THE FUTURE Our Vision- to foster excellence in the teaching/learning space in order to develop productive students. It was not just about students. It is not just about students gaining competences in the academics; it is extended to them becoming citizens of quality, honest, respectful, productive; emotionally, spiritually and physically healthy.
