This is my second year at valley view and it has been a blast for me. The teachers are extremely nice, the new principal is amazing, and I am getting A's in all honors classes. This is a great school for students who want to learn. I'm excited to go to school when I wake up in the morning and I never want to leave. Mr. McCarter and Mr. Greminger are the BEST teachers ever. They are so funny, nice, and just wonderful teachers. I recommend this school to EVERYONE!!!!!!

My daughter just finished 7th grade. She did fantastic with a full load of Honors classes. With the exception of one or two teachers, I found that it was easy to speak with the teachers if I felt my daughter was in trouble. Mrs. Webb (now retired) did a great job of keeping the school in line and her many group phone calls home (and there were many) kept me well informed. In regards to Aeries. I accessed Aeries at least once a day and never experienced an outage, so I'm not sure what the other parent is referring to since it was very stable for me. There is a lot of homework and it can be overwhelming at times, but I've spoken to parents at other schools and it's this way across the board. My daughter will be well-prepared for the demands of high school thanks to the effort put forth by the teachers at Valley View.

This has been the absolute worse year academically for my son. My oldest son went to Valley View a few years ago and although it was not stellar it was infinitely better than this year (my youngest first year). I have been in contact with his teachers and never have the agreed to a face to face meeting although I suggested it more than once. He is literally failing 4 of the 6 classes and I JUST now got the information form the principal as to who his counselor is. The entire school district changed over to Aeries for the grades and homework and yet again tonight I try and log on and it is down AGAIN> The teachers claim to have information and help on their web page. Some do but most do not or have not been updated for months. I understand the cut back but the teachers really do not care. Beware - my son is constantly telling me of drug issue at school - the principal has confirmed this on more than one occasion. If you are Simi please have you child attend one of the other 2 middle schools. Hillside is very good and we will either be heading there or moving to a different district to get out of Simi's

Valley View Middle School in Simi Valley is in need of new leadership. The Homework load is overwhelming and unreasonable. Average time taking four hours and on certain occasions up to 9 hours. I have two children , both were GATE now Honors, both reading at a 12.9 grade level and they are avid readers. My son has graduated from Valley View and is doing quite well at Santa Susana High School in Simi Valley. My daughter is in the seventh grade and is a devoted student. It is impossible for her to complete her english stems. poetry and RHO packets. Plus there are Art requirements in English!! Why?? My son says he couldn't complete them either when he was there. While there are a few really good teachers there, most are below average or are incompetent. Bullying, the schools bullying program is laughable. Both of my intelligent students hate the school. Your children will as well. Poll the student body and you will find this is an accurate appraisal. Mr. Greminger, Mr. McCarter, Mrs. Abdallah, Mr. Dingman, Mrs. Stilson and Mr. Schuster are exceptional educators and save Valley View from being a total failure. Your experience may be different, but don't bet on it.

If I could give a half star I would, based only on they are a building you can send a middle schooler to. When we moved here from out of state I would think teachers and admin would actually make sure my child is adapting. Not even close! He was forgotten within a day, his grades quickly fell and nobody would call me back. I was asking for online access to his grades for over a month, nobody there returns calls or emails!!!! When I did receive it and my child had went from an A to D student in his first 2 months based on 12 missing assignments (all graded in his folder btw). I was furious!!! And the teachers responded "it's the child's responsibility, really??? To make sure he is given credit for graded assignments. The teachers just don't care, when asked a question my child has been snapped at more in the few months here, than in his entire education! Now today they have a jog a thon. If you choose to not raise money you have to run on a longer track and no water! Seriously! Tried at least 10 times to talk to the principal they always bump me elsewhere, never even seen the woman! Take your kids ANYWHERE else, homeschool before you go here!

I'm finding the same issue as the 9-24-13 post- I, too, know my child's short comings and I have always had an open line of communication with teachers to work together, however, I've attempted to contact two of my child's teachers and I get absolutely nothing. I firmly recall every teacher during Back to School night saying "email me, I'll get right back to you". Hmm, maybe if your child is close to perfect do you get a reply. I am trying let my child "fight" his own battles and take responsibility for a lot more communication, but let's face it- he's 12 and this is definitely not yet a strength, however, it is unsettling that some of these teachers will just sit back and watch a child fail, especially in a core subject. It's discouraging as a parent to reach out to the school only to be basically reprimanded and dismissed. Is it a VVMS issue, a poorly funded CA public school issue or a national issue? I don't know but as a parent, I find it to be a pretty personal issue.

Valley View is an outstanding school!!! I'm a 7th grade GATE student and I just love this school!! Mr. Derek Greminger is my favorite teacher! He teaches life science and he interacts very well with me and my classmates! You couldn't have a better teacher! Mrs. Webb is just an AMAZING principal... Sure she's a little strict but that's because she loves her students and wants the best for us!! I recommend this school 100%!!

I attended this school starting in the 6th grade. I was bullied. Several times I brought it up to my councilors only to have them ignore the problem. I was beaten up twice and i recieved the all the punishment. In eighth grade, my friend came to school crying and I gave him a hug before school started. I was given an hour detention and my friend was given a lecture about "wasting his time with girls". The academics were a nightmare for me. I have never been good at math and every year my plea for a tutor was ignored. The dress code is harshly enforced as well. I wore two and a half inch heels and sat in the office for two hours being lectured. Once, when my shirt was "low cut" a teacher said she would either send me to the office or shove tissue paper down my shirt. The only silver lining I found in this school was the drama program. David Dingman is one of the most incredible, talented, and commited teachers you will find in this town. The drama program saved my life and taught me many valuable lessons on several occasions. I do not reccomend this school to anyone, but if you are a performer trapped in Simi Valley, then this is the middle school for you.

My child was bullied, and the situation was never addressed. Had to transfer to a new school, and very happy with the communication we receive.

My twins just graduated from this school, yesterday. I found that this school was a good and fair school, teaching things that were important later, such as the power point presentation. Kids who aren't doing well were given opportunity to tutoring, and if they didn't take advantage of it, well--there's a reason they probably aren't doing so well. Instruction is different from when I was in school, and I may not agree completely with methods being used, but I will give credit to all the teachers my daughters had over the past 2 years, as well as to my daughters, and to myself, for pushing and striving for greatness. If you don't understand something, seek answers elsewhere. The teachers my daughters dealt with were always welcoming and helpful. And--absolutely LOVED Mrs. Webb. Good job to everyone!

Very Dissapointed in this school, they just sat back and watch my daughter fail. There are no programs for kids who are struggling. She even said it. They think all the kids are on the same level. The staff are cold and desencitized. They need a to be more real, less fake.

Extremely disappointed in this school. So far we've only seen minimal effort from teachers and no one willing to teach a student how to learn. Information is thrown at them and in one format only (even if clarification is asked for!) Every night I'm teaching my daughter what she should be learning at school (and she's GATE)! The exception is the science program. Furthermore, most of the girls are extremely clicky and mean.

Very disappointed with Valley View. A principal that tells parents what they want to hear and doesn't follow through. Poor support for students struggling academically. Mediocre GATE program. How does a 50 slide powerpoint have any value? API scores should be 50 points higher based on the students going in to the school. State standards are often ignored. Good band program and some good teachers.

I am currently a student at Valley View and I love this school. It is a great school if your child is willing to learn. And everyone treats you like adults here trying to get you ready for High School. This school has great motivation and teachers are very helpful. Mrs. Webb is a very strict principal which is why students don't like her but parents DO!!! I recommend this school to everyone! It is a great school!


Posted November 17, 2010

my son is currently in Valley View and it's an awful school! They gave him an hour detention for giving a girl a hug! This school is unfair, STRICT, and most of all they go way over board for the little things! I do NOT suggest this school.

The principle Mrs. Webb takes so much prode in her school. She is strict but that is because she wants kids to be in an environment where they can learn without distractions. It has been a California Distiguished school for the last 4 years.

O.K., let's see, the principal means business and does NOT ALLOW any mischief at all! The kids do not like her, parents LOVE her. As the parent of a child with challenges, I have been extremely happy with the aides and peer student program. The teachers need more time to adapt curriculum for their students : (. The campus is wonderful and we had a great experience overall.

I am a student at valley view middle school, and I really hope you take what i have to say in consideration for your children. I am very unhappy at valley view middle school. They are very strict and inconsiderate about our problems. It will be very long if i go on and on about all that happens, but to sum it things up, Mrs. Webb is a very inconsiderate, strict, and,if i may, just plain mean to me and my friends. Most of my teachers that i have in my schedule rotation are very understanding and wonderful. There are a few exceptions. The kids around the school are not as wonderful as the teachers, lets just say, but its like that in any school. The yard duties look like honestly, that there just looking for the chance to get us at anything.To sum up, i do not suggest this school.


Posted December 25, 2009

I currently attend valley view and I think its a fantastic school! the school is strick though.. but thats what most schools are like. mrs.webb is a very kind strong principal that keeps this school in line.

I have an 8th grader at V.V., and he is very happy here. He attends V.V. since 7th grade. Mr. Schuster, music teacher is the best. Mrs. Webb, the principal is great, too. My only concern is that there are couple teachers let students to retake their test if the grade is c- or below. This 2nd chance will hurt them more than help them in my opinion. Other than that, this school is a great school.

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.
