I have been a teacher at Center Valley for 18 years and I look forward to going to work everyday. I have had the opportunity to teach so many wonderful young people. What makes Center Valley so special is that we are a real family. It is a happy place to work and an exciting place to learn.

Center Valley is the best elementary school in the Russellville School District! They have phenomenal teachers and staff that care about their students. The classrooms are full of educational resources. I believe that all students are capable of learning because of the environment at Center Valley.

I am a parent that has had all four children go through CVE. There is no better school in the state for a child to be educated. The teachers are warm and accommodating, the staff is helpful and fun, and the administration is communicative and strong. From preschool through fourth grade, I never had one single problem. My children have come out with great scores and are more ready for the upper grades than I could have ever imagined. Center Valley is focused on family, fun, and learning!

Center Valley has been a great place for my child. My son entered Kindergarten this year and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher and school to jump start his academic career. His teacher is always available to talk or share information about how he is doing, both areas to improve and areas he's doing well in. He enjoys visiting the library, science lab, computer lab, art room, and gym each week. I know he is safe and loved each day at school.

Center Valley Elementary is an amazing school! The teachers are very personable and work well with the students. Just a few weeks in to the school year you know immediately that the teachers care about the student's well being. I would highly recommend any parent sending their child to this school if they are moving to the Russellville area. It has been a blessing to get to know all of the teachers at Center Valley and I have never been around a group of teachers that felt more like a family than this school. The teachers are extremely caring and work well with the parents.

I have taught at Center Valley since it opened. From the very start, Center Valley felt like a family. Everyone was willing to help anyone who needed help. That is still the way I feel about Center Valley today. We are like a family with everyone looking out for each other, academically, emotionally, and physically. My son attended Center Valley and I feel he received a good foundation to build on for the rest of his life.

I absolutely love Center Valley! Both of my children attended this school, and it prepared them to excel at the fifth grade building. The teachers pushed my children to do their best while making them feel special at the same time. Their scores are consistently in the top 20th percentile in the state. The principal is very welcoming to parents and wants them to be involved in their child's education. Honestly, there is NOT a better school in the USA!

CVE is a top notch school. A lot has changed since the review in 2006. Automatic locking doors keep those who shouldn't be in, out. Someone is always in the office to greet. Computerized check-in and check-out system. My child is in the 1st grade and she loves it there & us too. The teachers care about each student no matter their financial makeup and our financial makeup is nowhere near the top. Academically, the teachers make sure that each child knows their subjects and then go a little further. The PTO is over the top! Making sure that the kids are treated as special individuals for their birthdays, or as they are promoted to the next grade. They ensure the extra funding needed for the school is there with great fundraising events and festivials. Our daughter excels at CVE, she is advanced and so will your child. We love it!

My children and a few of my nephews go to this school. Overall I would say this school needs to be more welcoming and cautious. Welcoming in the sense that when a parent comes no matter rich or poorer needs to not be ignored! Cautious as in, anyone could walk right in and walk right past the front office and get a child out easily without any one of them bothering to look up and ask any questions. This school lacks in hospitality but it is excellent in academics.

Both of my children have attended CVE since kindergarten. I can honestly say that we have had all positive experiences at this school. Every teacher my children have had they have loved. I have volunteered quite a bit at the school and always feel welcome by each teacher I come into contact with. They are very child-oriented, upbeat, and capable. Both of my children have excelled academically and I have to give most of the credit to the teachers and curriculum at CVE. The recognition that every child receives, for both academic and physical accomplishments, is a great confidence builder and incentive for them to continue to achieve. No child is overlooked; they are rewarded any time they are willing to make an effort, even if progress is slower than most. We will really miss CVE when my youngest child leaves 4th grade. But we will cherish all of our memories!

The teachers at center valley are the best around but the leadership of the principal is lacking. She has old and oudated ideas on teaching and need to be replaced.
