About this school

Valentine Elementary School exists in a small suburban community on the edge of a sprawling metropolis - LA. The school's atmosphere and the community in which it exists is more mid-western small town. SMUSD's schools are a major focus of the community at large and enjoy high regard from the citizens. The schools all have a very close family feel - culturally diverse as that family may be - of which we are very proud. Children are the "heart" of Valentine School.
