Valley Christian Elementary does a wonderful job of educating the whole child! Along with an excellent core curriculum, all students are taught music, foreign language, computers, art, hands-on science, and other subjects that contribute to a well-rounded education. Add to that the thoughtful spiritual component present in the classroom and in weekly chapel, and it is no wonder that Valley Christian graduates are making a difference in our community and our world!
Teachers truly care for each student. The principal knows all the students by name and has lunch with each of them before the school year is over. Opportunities to develop skills like music and drama are prevelant. My son started the cello last year and loves it! I never thought my kids would be able to participate due to the costs of private lessons but in school music training have made that possible for us and opened an area of giftedness we never knew our son had.
I have never been so pleased with a school in my life. The staff is incredible and the teachers truly value every one of their students. The resources this school offers are endless, from technology to instruments. This is truly a school that God has a hand in.
Our son thrived here for 4 years, from K-3 and I volunteerd so much because I loved being there. There were some double standards in the discipline area which were frustrating. Unfortunatley due to the high tuition we had to leave the school. Even more unfortunate was the very 'unchristian' way school treated us when we left. Good school, but WAY too money driven. I'd never go back for this very reason.
There is no avenue for problem resolution within the Valley Christian system of schools. When children are mistreated, they and their parents have no recourse within the system to resolve an abusive situation. All rights reside with the school and child welfare is not a priority.
