Nice attitude from the teachers. Curriculum balanced, challenging and yet not so difficult it breaks a kids spirit.
Valley Christian School is an excellent school. Our daughter attended 5th grade there after coming from a Sacramento public school. The level of education is outstanding. They truly inspire the children with a high standard of morals. Children are taught to treat each other the way they would have others treat them. If we hadn't relocated to Texas, our child would have stayed at Valley til High School graduation.
My daughter is now a junior at VCHS and can't say enough good things about it. As a christian parent I want my child well rooted in christian beliefs before entering a secular society, I believe that is being met. All schools have issues but I can say if a problem exists this principal will evaluate the problem and try to resolve it in a timely fashion. The course work is tough and the students must work hard to maintain good grades. My son went to a well known all boys school in this area and VCHS well exceeded it in academics as well as sports and the arts.
Both my son and daughter grew spiritually while at this school, which mattered most to my wife and I. Academically, I was especially happy with the preparation they received. Both attend university now (my son graduates this spring!) and are doing very well in their studies. Their writing and analytical thinking skills, in particular, were very solid when they left Valley; they were surprised at how many students entered college without such skills in place. On top of that, they were taught to think biblically about the world around them and to seek their role in society as a world-changer. I am profoundly grateful that they attended Valley Christian High School.
As parent of a kindergartner, I am impressed that there is a 'culture' of catching potential problems early. Other observations include: the experienced teachers are both very insightful and caring, and even non-teachers on the staff appear to be alert and friendly. Bottom line: my wife and I are very pleased we chose this school.
Despite several well intentioned teachers and administrators... what started as a great idea and a great school and been turned into nothing more than an elitist football camp. Both my brother and I went to both the junior and senior high til graduation but went we got to college we found out that straight A's at Valley didn't mean anything in college. We were incredibly underprepared. On the plus side we greatly enjoyed our extacurricular activities while we were there. The new campus spared no expense when it came to athletic facilities although the art room was still just a classroom and the theatre had yet to be finished. Despite some of the locker room hazing my brother enjoyed his time and despite missing my senior cruise (because you had to have a date to attend) I also would not have traded my time there. I have heard things are getting better and I really hope they are.
