If a kids lies about another student and the parent/ teacher already doesn't like the other kid. That kid will be punished. It is a poorly balanced school that seems to support the bullies (ie. popular kids)

While it may have once been great, that is not the case anymore. After suffer 2 horrible years at this school we are overjoyed to be leaving. This school is a bad place, the teachers are either checked out, or completely haggard. The best description of this school is a "worksheet factory". Despite having tiny classes the teachers seem to lean on loading the kids with a stack of worksheets and not spend time educating the children. When it comes for religion, there is this strange obsession with having the kids study single verses from the bible, as opposed to actually teaching these kids to be loving and caring people. Religion seems like a great place to teach kids critical thinking as as they study the bible, they are more concerned with confusing tests that make the children depressed when they fail these useless exams. This school is full of cruel bully children and the teachers seem to be indifferent to the kids emotional well being. Overall avoid this place.

This very affordable private school has been recognized several times by several professional organizations such as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) with their highest awards and certifications. It has an excellent and highly motivated staff, a broad-based academic curriculum, language and music arts and both on-campus and league athletic programs, and a large, beautiful campus with ultra modern buildings. Class sizes are small and year after year, the majority of our students have gone on to graduate from some of America's finest colleges and universities.

The staff cares about the students a great deal. They really look out for all the students. The classes are small. They have P.E. everyday and Spanish twice a week. They also have music once a week. This is a great school.

I can't say enough great things about Shepherd of the Valley. I attended this school and my children attended SOV. The teachers and staff are amazing. The community is so very friendly. We all have made life long friends.

Small class sizes, attentive to each child's individual needs, fantastic 6th Grade program (this was wonderful because I wasn't ready for my child to be in a huge middle-school environment. It was an excellent time for him to mature emotionally and academically). A nurturing environment to the students, memorable events for the whole family like Mother-Son and Father-Daughter events, Roller Disco, Fall Fun Festival, and so much more. My child and I BOTH made lifelong friends at this school!

My review is for the preschool. My son has been attending for a few months now, and I am very pleased with the program. The small class size has helped him grow in leaps and bounds, and the warm, caring staff is highly qualified.

My child is in the transitional kindergarten program and I am thrilled with her academic progress. She is being nurtured and cared for and growing as a whole child. I have already had 3 friends join the school as well. Great school!!

SOV is an exceptional school! My children love attending school here. They enjoy the small classroom size and the one on one attention they receive. Their new TK program is wonderful! As a parent, I appreciate the the teachers and staff. The teachers are great and very involved. They always make time for their students and go above what is expected of them. Mrs. Haskell is a wonderful principal.

This is the best school! You can see it in the way the kids interact with each other. There is a genuine kindness that you feel the minute you walk in the door.We have been at SOV going on three years, and my children are excelling in everything they are learning. The one on one attention they get i is amazing. Everyday they are excited to go to school, and so am I. The families I've met there will be life long friends. This school is truly a gift.
