Valley View Adventist Academy is an outstanding school, We love the small class sizes, personalized & caring attention from the teachers, if you want you children to attend a school where they are treated as you would treat your children. This is the school you want! and we love the school's motto: "Learn with Passion, Serve with Compassion"

Fantastic school! My daughter is in 2nd grade and has been at VVAA since Kindergarten and my son will start K this fall. We drive up from Santa Maria and it's worth every gallon of gas. I can't say enough good things about VVAA. Caring Christian teachers, high academic standards, emphasis on good character development, warm family-oriented campus, nice facilities and new million-dollar building opening soon, art/music/sports programs, etc. Love it and so blessed that my children are there.

Valley View is such an excellent school and environement for my Children! I feel very fortunate for my kids to be attending this exceptional school. Not only are the Academics outstanding, but the focus on the Christian values and family is something you can't put a price on!

We love the small classroom sizes. The teachers & staff show love & compassion to all the student. No matter what grade your child is in, they are known by name by all the teachers. It's a family atmosphere during the school events. With the exception of Pizza Friday, hot lunch is homemade at the school.

What isn't there to like. The principal, teachers & staff really care about our children. The hot lunch program is the best in the area. A small school with a big heart.

It is a very good place for your child especially if you are tired of having to deal with bad language, drugs etc. I like the way they include everyone in sports and all the activities

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
