Teacher involvement is excellent for the students who attend this school. My children have excelled in every subject this year because of their teachers willingness to challenge them and help them succeed!
What a woderful school, where instead of teaching to the test, the teach to each child and the best of their abilities. Everyone from the teachers and staff, not to mention the wonderful principal, Martin Ellsworth, are kind caring and nurturing. My only sadness is that the school stops at middle school. How wonderful it would be if the could add high school to this amazing school.
I had always heard that this school was special.I have to say that my involvement with the school has proven this to be true. This is a small rural school with a warm and familial feeling. The teachers seem to truly care. One of the best things I have seen at Valley View is the school's 'Love of Reading' annual celebration, which pulls community members, staff, and students together for a week of activities with reading at the core.
Children at this school have access to classes in Spanish, Music, and Computers taught by specialists who seem to do a very good job. The quality of the music program, for such a small school, is wonderful. The atmosphere in the school is welcoming, and it appears to be safe.
My son is in first grade, Dana Salem is the best teacher I have experienced. Ms. Salem adapts to each childs learning style and the class learns together. Ms. Salem is approachable and understanding. It is a wonderful feeling to look into these kids eyes and see the eagerness to learn. The first graders at Valley View are always smiling. As a parent I am extremely pleased at the level of accomplishment.
I am very happy with Valley View. I think this school should be used as an example of how good schools can be. Everyone appears to place the good of the students first. The resource dept. is the best I have ever seen. The school encourages parent involvement, and keeps an open line of communication. I have a second grader that looks forward to going to school everyday.
Valley View is an exceptional educational facility with a friendly and caring staff. The teachers know the students well and the principal seems to be a hands-on instructional leader. The front office is run with efficiency as well.
I have been pleased with Valley View. The atmosphere is very positive and school spirit is infectious.
Valley View is a small school with a big heart. There is a family like feeling since there is only one class at each grade level and everyone knows everyone. All grades performed well on the Stanford 9 Test with 2nd, 6th & 8th doing extremely well. Valley View 6th graders had the highest scores in the county for their grade level!
