Valley Is a good school. It's not exactly fantastic in reference to behavior, or economic surplus (or even stability) but as a student, i can still say that it's a grand place. The teachers are committed to the class, and don't easily give up. they can tell who does and doesn't care about learning or going someplace in life, and make sure to not let ne'er-do-wells drag down the rest. I'm a little sad that i have to leave them this year, but I'm negotiating with my parents to let me finish the year before moving to Ohio. The AHA program is really good, and the Honors program prioritizes the right people. The kids sometimes have a bad rep as a bunch of no-good cholos, but for the most part, they're all good people... Goodbye Valley... I'll miss you.
Great school and creative teachers. Very active PTSA. My daughter did well here. Superintendent Dr. Judy White has done a great job with our youths in Moreno Valley.
Probably the best you're going to get in Moreno Valley. Great campus. We live just across the street and have had two students so far here with two more to attend here in the future.
i went to valley laste year.this is a good school if your kids are willing to put in work and try hard if not the teachers will just give up on you and keep on moving on with no problem.the portfolio is just another way for the teachers to make sure your doing your work but at the same time if you didnt do that assignment that has to be in your portfolio you would fail english which happend to me.i believe if you cild is an AP student then that school will be a breeze to the.if not you cild will struggle but they might make it at the same time.the teachers are pretty decent they have alot of clubs and they support all of the sports to the fullest and all of the clubs to the fullest.
Science department refuses to update their curricullum. The new textbooks sit on the counter and are not used. This makes it impossible to help the student or hire a tutor, since there is no relevent reference material available. Test and intstruction cover a fraction of multiple chapters in order to match past textbooks and old lessons. Students are just confused and frustrated. Hopefully your student will go on to college and realize it was not them, but the poor instruction and assesment. Unfortunatly they will start behind their peers and may not have the grades required to get into a UC. Even worse, they may not believe that they have the ability to go on to a university.
I am a Vally View graduate and now my son is a freshman. I am very excited to have him going to the same school I did. Valley View has always been a tough school on academics and discipline. There are always a few teachers and/ or staff that have lost their enthusiasm for doing their job but as a whole their are so excellent people at Valley View. Most want to see your child succeed. I believe the senior projects and portfolios are preparing students for college. Term papers are ususally a huge portion of their grade and they won't pass the class if not completed or their College Thesis. So hopefully your student rises to the challenge and graduates from Valley and goes on to College. Don't forget parents you are the biggest influence in your childs life and if you think it's too hard so will they!
This school has teachers there that are so old they should not be teaching. Teachers refuse to try different ways to teach students. It is either the student gets it and if not lets keep going. The admin will not help students until it is too late to bring up grades even after parents have asked for help. My son was a freshman and I am transfering him to another school. Also the portfolio and senior project is just another area where teachers can degrade students who have trouble with writing. My son's first english teacher put him down enfront of all the students in his class. Wow that helps students learn. I would not choose this school for any child not an AP student.
I transferred from Vista Del Lago to here, and wow is there a difference! The teachers are great. The only disadvantage of this school is its age. A lot of the door handles broken, but its cool with me.
Excellent school for those of you entering Honors and AP, the teachers are very much involved and will make it a point to help you reach your goal. I graduated last year and really had a great experience from classes to extracurricular activities, it was all awesome.
Their music program is awesome! I love my CARTA 11 teachers, they really do care about how I do in school.
Valley View is not a good school.The teachers don't care.My daughter is doing much better at Rancho Verde.
Valley View is as good as the parrents,teachers and students. My daughter is doing great there and my son is failing a few classes. Some of it is partly his fault, partly the teachers fault, and partly my fault. I have had a few issues with some of his teachers and the principle has tried to help but the teacher who sent my son out of class for asking his teacher to explain the instructions again has not called my back. I am so surprised to see such low rating for our schools here in Moreno Valley. I had no idea how bad it was when i moved here 18 years ago. The worst schools in orange are much better then our best schools. Shamefull
The quality of the academic programs is great; individual student motivation and parent participation is lacking, largely due to extended commutes. VVHS has outstanding extracurricular activities, so encourage your child to get involved! What can I say... my spouse has been volunteering at VVHS for more than 17-years! Yes, volunteering. More parents need to try this, the rewards are positive interactions with several gifted and talented students.
Perfect school..love the sports and most of the wonderful teachers that care for there students

I am a new parent to valley view high, and I had a very bad and stressful situation getting my child registered because there was so much confusion and I don't feel that the staff had the proper instructions on how to guide the students and parents. But since school has been in session, I and my child feel that for the most part of it the staff is great and friendly. A lot of the teachers are great with their teaching technics and for the few bad apples there are, well we all need to learn to work with them and weed them out and focus on the good.The teachers all need to inter-act with their students to both be successful and have the students succeed.
This is one of the best schools there is. The faculty is welcoming, the reachers are experiencedand the stundents are acamedmic. This is imdeded a perfect school academically and in sports.
Academically lacking school. Unresponsive teachers and administration. I believe this to be an obvious lack of leadership.
If you're going into the honors and AP classes, Valley View is fantastic. Otherwise, the school's enviroment isn't conducive to learning. The teachers in it are excellent, and truly care about preparing you for college. If you're in Moreno Valley, it's the best school to go to if you want the best academic program (in the area).
I have had 2 kids graduate from here and 1 next year. I have dealt with a many teachers and staff. Although most of my experiences have been good overall, there have been a few rotton apples. I feel blessed that for the most part, my kids have had a great set of teachers. As far as extracurricular activities go there has been far too many cuts in the budgets. We as adults complain that the kids are getting into trouble, well if there were more things for them to do afterschool that don't cost an arm and a leg, I beleive that we wouldn't have as near the amount of problems we have.
