Valley View Elementary is a more than we imagined. The principal Sherry Anderson is very open to new ideas for the school. In the two years that she has been at Valley View, that the school has implemented many programs that are geared towards character involvement which help students become more confident in themselves. When the students become more confident, they are more productive and do better. This year my daughter is learning about the Stephen Covery principles that I learned in my 20's and she's 10. Those are life skills that are not typically taught at schools. I believe the character programs are a huge reason as to why Valley View continues to achieve a 10 rating. We love Valley View!
My son attends Valley View and has a great experience. He has been challenged academically and has learned things I think I learned in Jr. High/High School. I think highly of the principal, teachers and support staff. I would have to strongly disagree with the parent who criticized the office staff...ever have a bad day? They are human beings who constantly have to deal with everything from grumpy parents to health emergencies to teacher needs. They run the school and are a huge part of why the school has a great reputation and the highest test scores of a traditional school in the county!
My child has 26 kids in his first grade class this year. We moved into this district several years ago specifically for this school based on reputation, and this is very disappointing. He loves his teacher, but this is not a good situation. and others researching schools should be aware of this about this district.
Valley View elementary has a great staff of teachers, principal and support staff. It has an effective PTC that donates money to school improvements and the arts. We have a parent-volunteer run Art Docent program, as well as an additional art program 'VAPA'. They offer music to 4th grade and up, incorporate dance into the fantastic PE program, and extracurricular sports on campus (volunteer-- but by our wonderful PE coach Mrs. Rabe). The teachers support these art and dance programs by allowing the students to participate in them during class hours. How does this effect learning? Well, just look at our state test scores!!
I am very pleased with Valley View. I have been so impressed with the curriculum, teachers, administration, PTC, and parents. I feel fortunate that my three children are attending a top notch school receiving exceptional education. I give the school an A++++ rating.
The test scores say it all! What an incredible school. It delivers the results - superior teachers who care about the kids, and the parental support that every school / student needs. The PTC has been involved with things I never thought would be in the PTC scope, and has prepared for and anticipated loss of funds thru state and district budget cuts. From top to bottom a top-notch school!
I think that Valley View has the most compassionate and exceptional principal, teachers, and office staff around. They work together to ensure that the students follow the disciplines of learning, community and self. There are so many additional educational and extracurricular avenues offered that enhance the elementary school experience. It is common practice to see teachers supporting and volunteering at every student and family event. Valley View provides an environment where every student can thrive to his or her potential. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!
We moved from the bay area several years ago where our kindergarten child at the time was at the top of the class. When she got here, she was at the bottom! They quickly got her up toward the top again and all of our children have exceled here. This school does an excellent job.
The teachers are hit and miss. I can speak highly of Mrs. Schuett. Admin staff is absolutely horrible. Office clerk is in absolutely wrong position, there are so many people that would and could do 100% better. She is extremely rude and a few other words. Principle is a nice guy but a push over to his office staff. Funds need to be spent more wisely!
The school is great in every aspect. Great staff, principal, curriculum, attention towards students and the activities, academics, etc. Every kid and parent is really proud of what we are able to get anc contribute
I have two children attending Valley View Elementary. We have been at Valley View for the past six years. I am very impressed with the dedication both the teachers and administrators show for the children in our school. I have personally experienced how this school takes a personal responsibility for each and every child in ensuring they have every opportunity to grow and thrive. Our school has a very active volunteer community and PTC which has spearheaded several critical improvements to our school. We are a Distinguished School of California, and my children are receiving every opportunity to succeed thanks to our Valley View family!
Kindergarten last year they dissected a squid at the end of the year... The learning opportunities are amazing at Valley View Elementary!
I have had a child at Valley View since it opened (2001). There has been almost no turnover in staff, and as a result, it really does feel like an extension of your family. There is a never ending list of parent volunteers. It is a great school. My children are far above their Sacramento counterparts, and I know 90% of it is due to the teachers, the school, and the programs offered. (10% is me!)
The principal is very involve in the activities of the students. He accepts teachers who are competent and knowledgeable.
My daughter transferred from private school to Valley View; and so far we are very pleased and impressed with the school overall. It has a lot to offer to our kids; high academics, caring teachers,social activities, respect. Parent involvement is outstanding. Love it so far!
Transferred here last year from one of the Bay Area's top schools only to find a better school here. My daughters state scores have increased ! I love it!
Valley View is an excellent elementary school serving the Whitney Oaks and parts of the Stanford Ranch areas of Rocklin Elementary. Parent involvement is high.
Excellent school, caring instructors. The factulty involvement is high. It is a new school (6 years old). Highly recommend it.
My children attending this school the first year it opened. It was an absolutely fantastic school, with caring educators & administrators. I wish they could still be in this school district as they were much further along then, than they are in the current district we attend.
