This school is working hard to educated our children. It's ashame that a few parents who obviously don't spend time at the school can ruin it for everyone. The current principal is amazing and the teachers do so many things on their own time to make sure that the students are getting the support that the need. Our kids are lucky to go to this school!

No leadership, support, or organization in this school! Principal doesn't do fundraisers no field trips no school spirit or pride at all whatsoever at this school it's really sad! Principal needs to be replaced with a much better one ASAP! This is my child's first year here and doesn't look forward to school now I know why, kids need fun ways of learning make school fun, safe, and interesting for students, field trips is one example but no money and principal doesn't do fundraisers! No form of bullying should be ever tolerated but principal doesn't care from what it seems she takes no pride in this school or her role as principal never gets involved with parents hides from them we only see the vice principal all the principal does is sit at her desk and collect a paycheck and it's all she obviously cares about!

I currently have a child attending Quail Valley and her teacher is absolutely awesome. The office staff seems to be nice each time I encounter them and they are usually very helpful. I have not had any dealings with the principal as of yet, but the vice principal was expedient in a situation that needed immediate attention.

I've been at quail Valley since 4th grade.(2009-2010) I don't approve of the behavior or the students. My friends are nice but I always see arguments & fights with some other students. I think that the school is not the right school for me. I believe that Plainview Ave. School in Tujunga,CA is more of a well behaved school than this one.

This school is AWESOME and it deserves 5 stars.I love Quail Valley,Its been 2 hours of school being out and me leaving for summer vacation,i know i should be happy but im crying.Because this was my last year there now im going to Middle school,im going to miss Quail Valley and the people in it ive been there since Kindergarden,so its very hard to leave.Quail Valley is going to stay in My Heart FOREVER so many friends and memories i wont forget Q.V. or my friends and my Favorite Staff if u want a kid's opinion well here it is,Quail Valley has taught me alot of things not just school work but dance...Quail Valley has so many things to offer...seriously.!


Posted August 13, 2009

I think quail Valley needs to let parents know about things that go on or if they need something..I mean this past year was my sons last year there and they had nothing for the six graders,not even like a small party at least! i know they say they don't do 'graduations' because they don't want to let the kids think they reached their goal after finishing 6 grade..but alot of kids have worked their butts off specially this last year..i think a little acknowledgement of some kind like maybe a small party doesn't hurt anyone..if they don't have in the budget just like with the year books,which there was no yearbook this year was wrong! that made me real upset as other parents!! if the school would of let us know specially us parents whos children was going to be the last year in this school..we would of helped out!!

I feel this school is a great school, teacher involvement is wonderful they seem to try hard to make learning fun for the children, and with limited resourses they do the best they can to create budget friendly ways to motivate and reward children. I feel the teachers at quail valley are some of the best. The office staff is very welcoming they are excellent at rememembering faces. As far as principals go ahh the last was ok . The vice presidents were great. Crossing gaurds really need to cross the kids all the way start to finish and not stay close to the curb and twirl there sign around i mean we all got to do our jobs and they have the most important one, keeping our kis safe. Parent involvement excellent!! i should know i am very active in my childrens education . Overall i love this school.

one of the problems with quail valley elementary is, they don't teach regular curriculum. another proplem is they push the kids to hard. there is no extra curricular activities to help develop there minds. no drama department, and other things of that nature that helps shape the mind.

I have three children who attended QV since kindergarten (the youngest is the only one still at QV) and I have seen the many changes. This school used to be use the arts and cultural activities to engage children. These things have greatly decreased and they are clearly not supported by the current principal. The teachers actually seem afraid to teach. The are forced to adhere to strict guidelines even when the children do not understand. The bullies are starting to run the school and the noon duties are afraid of them. I used to be proud that my children attended Quail Valley, now I'm glad that we're almost done with it.

I have two children in this school they just don't fill like going to school because principle staff,and the teachers care less when the child tries to ask a question their just been ignore.The principle knew kids were smoking she just didn't do anything to the rest of the kids only to one child it seem that she just don't care.

I currently have one child at the school and have graduated one. I have two more that are going to start there is a couple of years. The teachers are good. Academically the state has placed many obstacles in the material that needs to be taught. I still believe though that the teachers have not adapted to the curriculum and that is affecting the students. This school needs to get on track with their teaching methods. They base everything on tests the state requires. How about teaching some of the teachers on better teaching methods. We are loosing the power of the teachers and enforcing the power of the politicians. Let's get the children a better quality learning environment and not concentrate so much on these tests. I also don't like this new principal. Very boring and seems so out of touch with the parents and students.

Quail Valley is a great school. Our teachers are dedicated our Principal is an active one, and our PTA is awesome. The students, including my own, are very happy and fulfilled there. It is a great family oriented atmoshpere. The teachers are open, friendly and available. Simply put, again, Quail Valley is a great school.

Quail Valley is a great school. Although not officially recognized by the district, we are a school of the arts. The children are encouraged to participate in several theatre arts and dance group (steppers) throughout the year. We have a very active PTA and hold events once or twice a month.

This school pays more attention to cultural awareness, especially pertaining to African American and Latino cultures than it does acadamia. Furthermore, Some cultures are patently ignored and this is not right. Furthermore, I am very disappointed that teachers have yelled at me on the telephone when they allowed themseves to become frustrated with one of my children. It is also funny that some teachers believe this school to be one of the top ranking schools in the area, while websites like Greatschools.org report that they are very far below average of schools in the area. In one instance I read a paragraph that a teacher wrote on the board for the students that was in such poor English it was alarming! This school is in trouble. The fucus is out of balance, the teachers & N. Duties are hostile towards students and parents.

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.
