I am a prior student, class of 1996! I believe that this school and the teacher did an excellent job of educating me. I believe, now that I am in the real world, working...it is up to the students on what they want to learn and whether they want to challenge themselves to do better, ask for more work, read in their spare time. Despite the rating for this school, I believe it also lies in how motivated the students are in learning...not parents complaining that it is the schools fault for their child not passing their classes.

I have a son and a daughter at Valley High School and very well satisfied with my children's and their teacher's progress in their academics. As a parent, I know it is my responsibility as well as the school's that my children are progressing well in school. My only concern is grades posted when a long term substitute is teaching a particular class for a teacher who is out on sick leave or for re-certification purposes. I have several close relatives who had their children in a situation like this and the regular teacher returned and disregard the substitute teacher's grades. I am convinced that a certified substitute teacher has the ability to give grades instead of using the one grade the regular teacher had to use for the whole semester's grade for the students. My concern is valid because this will be a situation I deal with next grading period when my daughter's teacher comes back when he gets re-certified by the state department and reinstated by the local governing board.
