Hear From
Our Clients

There is nobody that partners better with you as a school to understand your needs. The management and the leadership that is in place in Valley Schools (now VSMG) is expertise across the board, to provide you with the best knowledge and information to do what’s best for your district.

Ken Hicks

Previously Peoria USD and now Dysart Unified

One of the reasons that the Town made the decision to move to VSEBG (managed by VSMG), is that membership is risk free…VSEBG was able to analyze our current costs, and quickly demonstrated how much we could save while increasing the services we were receiving at the time, such as free HIPPAA training, quarterly benefits briefings, health care reform reporting assistance and annual conferences with leaders in the state and nation.

Bruce R. Gardner

Assistant Town Manager, Town of Queen Creek

I have had the pleasure of working with Valley Schools (VSMG) for several years and appreciate that they are right there in the trenches with our benefits, business office and HR staff.

Jan Cordova

Employee Benefits, Glendale Union High School District

We brought on Valley Schools (VSMG) in 2017 as our Benefits Consultant. While it was a change, we soon realized we had nothing to worry about. Their service and responsiveness were exceptional, and we have been very happy with the savings procured on our medical and ancillary products through Valley Schools. We also appreciate their wellness expertise and go-to attitude in helping our employees live healthier lives. I would highly recommend anyone looking to save on benefits take a look at Valley Schools (VSMG) for benefits consulting.
