The best little school in LA! What a great school. The atmosphere is so warm and friendly. The teachers are very caring and dedicated. The parents are very involved. The principal Mr. Klein really cares about all of the children and faculty. Best of all the API scores improved greatly last year!! I fell very lucky to have found this school.
It is greate school. Students are safe and taken care of. Everybody works together as a family.
It really is 'the little school that could'. The staff and teachers are great. And, the parents really care. We are so lucky to have this school.
It gives you the feeling of community and family in a city where that's not always easy to find. The principal and staff know the name and face of every child at the school.
We have an amazing group of parents who volunteer endlessly, the principal and staff work hard to create an atmosphere of care and well being for our children. There is a real feeling of family in our small little gem of a school.
I love Valley View its a great School..And because they make you feel like family.
It's a amazing little school with the most outstanding and caring teachers,staff members and principle. The PTA puts on fun ways to collect for the school and this would bring us closer to our school goal.
The principal of this school really rocks, when my child has a problem in understanding his own behaviorial limits Mr Klein is there to talk him through it. He is clear on his expectations and doesn't talk down to the kids. My son says he enjoys his meetings with Mr. Klein. Most of the teachers have a history at the school so they are working together as a team and know all the kids. The physical location is beautiful too because there are trees surrounding the school. The parent body is also extremely friendly and hard working, to get the students the most out of the school experience by raising money for enrichment and field trips.
My granddaughter goes to this school and she loves her school and her teacher.
It's a small but great school! It has an amazing art program. I am thrilled that my children attend Valley View!!
Our svhool is the best kept secret in the entire city of Los angeles! It is like being at a country school in the middle of a big city! It is the very Best!!!!
My son went to Valley View for 5th and 6th grade. Not only did they challenge him acedemically but gave him the confidence that he could excel in school.
Valley View is and amazing school that is tucked away in the hills of Hollywood. It is quickly becoming one the most sought after schools in district. The teachers and parents make this an amazing community school and help to make all feel welcome.
What a sweet, special school. This is our first year, and I was a little nervous, but I've been utterly amazed. Our teacher is wonderful, as is the other K teacher, and the rest of the (tiny) staff seems great. It's such a small place -- only 210 students in K-6 -- that it really feels like community. It's true that it's still LAUSD and big budget cuts are coming, but hopefully the school's dedicated professional staff, and the organized PTA, will keep things running strong. Also, the principal, Mr. Klein, is a gem.
I love this school. The community is strong and always puts the children's needs a priority.
I love this school! My daughter had a horrible kindergarten experience at a previous school,so when we moved to L.A. I was dreading her 1st grade year. God Bless Valley View Elementary! My daughter has ADHD and is very behind in academics (thanks to her K teacher casting her aside) and has had behavioral issues( before ADHD diagnosis and treatment). Needless to say we are struggling to get her caught up in school. Valley View's staff has been exceptional! So nice,caring and helpful. The principal is so wonderful and involved as are the staff. They have made a huge effort to help my daughter and have been supportive. This is also a very small school which allows the staff a little more flexibility to give students extra attention if they need it. Gosh I just can't say enough about this school. Parents are very involved too. Truly LAUSD's Gem!
this school is getting better and better. there are some wonderful teachers and each year it is attracting more motivated parents. there is a great PTA that funds focusfish, field trips, workshops, etc. also, it's nice and small which helps create a great community atmosphere.
Valley View has finally become a community of parents and staff who work together in the best interest of the children without adult ego interference.
Valley View has a lot of positives. It is in a beautiful hillside setting. It is a small school with a family spirit. No student gets lost in the shuffle here because the staff gets to know you and your siblings. Former students bring their children back here. The staff is a mixture of experienced veterans and newer teachers. Its Arts Prototype Program brings in art, drama, and dance teachers. PTA has funded a physical education program and worked to make sure all grade levels benefit from field trips. A core group of parents, (always in need of more help), coordinate a fall festival and talent show, family reader events, book fairs, cultural assemblies, science workshops and numerous other activities that contribute to the unique community feeling in the school. The school is not perfect but it certainly is a shining example of the 'little engine that could.'
