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 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.

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 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! 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!

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.'

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
