At Valley Horizon, we are committed to excellence. We take pride in our clear goal of moving all students to grade level in reading. Additionally, we are strongly committed to helping our students achieve all standards in every curriculum area. This focus on good, solid reading instruction helps us to positively impact student success in writing, math, social studies, and science. We are also proud of our special area classes in science, clubs, activities, and services available to our students such as FLL, and intramural sports. As you enter our building, please note the environment that shows our dedication to learning. At Valley Horizon, we follow the rule of thumb that our surroundings should reflect our beliefs. From the classroom bulletin boards that display student work in the hallways to our literacy rich environments, you can clearly see our focus!

My daughter attended Valley Horizon for 3rd Grade and is still attending. This school is truly all about the kids and learning. This school has many fun activities for these kids. Ex.. talent shows, bingo for books, movie nights, family nights and much more. My daughter loves her new school and her new teachers. Valley Horizon is a Excellent school with Excellent teachers.

Play ground is poor, my son is always bored, they have to put so much emphasis on reading instead of adding just a little more science, music, or art. Communication between parents and teachers is very poor. I really want to transfer my child to a different school!

My two children have attended VH since kindergarten, now in the 4th and 6th grades, and have had wonderful teachers, and have excelled in school.

Helps to parents i.e. workshops need to be offered in the evenings for working parents. My daughter has had a rough go of it. The socialization expectancy is not the best. They have helped her academically with special help. However, they tend to isolate her in the classroom and this brings about isolation as a whole. But, for the most part this school has been good for her. Just want her to look forward to going to school. To be able to excite her to learn would be good.

I think this is a very good school over all. My son is in the third grade and he just loves going to school. I think the teachers and the rest of the faculty make it that way. If they weren't doing there jobs or if they didn't love doing what they are doing then he would love being there. You are doing a great job. Keep up the good work.
