All three of my children have been here since Kindergarten. I love this school. School is Christ-Centered. Staff is friendly and caring. My children have made lasting relationships with great kids and families. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a small, safe school with a Christian environment

My son attends VVCS and loves it. He likes the Gate program provided by the school. He likes the extracurricular activities that some schools can no longer provide like Spanish, PE, Music, Computers, etc... He really enjoys the Christian environment and the loving teachers, administrators, and proctors that work at the school. His teacher provides a well rounded education that can't be beat. My children will be attending VVCS through their entire elementary and secondary education.

This year my daughter was in the fourth grade here. Her teacher Mr. Bailey was amazing. He cares for each child like they are his own. The staff and leadership here are wonderful. Dr. Byrd is a very organized, caring, hands on administrator who is very fair and wise. Scholastically, we have not found a better school up to and my daughter has attended two other private schools and this is the best. It's definately worth every penny. To the person who posted there was too much homework , there is a lot of wonr work but that's what I am paying for. If I wanted mediocre I would send her to public school. Being lazy and making excuses and blaming others will never serve you well. The Bible is full of verses that reflect this. Nothing is better than hard work! This school will prepare any child for college and that's why I chose it.my freshman year in college homework 20 hrs per week. This school is prepping for the real world and that's what my daughter needs. They care about these kids and strive for excellence, which is also what I want for my child. If you want a solid Christian education in a great loving environment this is the school for you:)

After attending public school from k thru 4th grade I enrolled my child at Victor Valley Christian School. The academics far exceed that of public school. My child loves the extracurricular activities of band, baseball and choir among others. Unlike public school, most homework with the exception of quarterly reports are done at school. I have found the staff to be exceptionally kind and helpful. Many educational field trips. She is there to stay!! Would highly recommend to parents who's children are college bound.

I wouldn't recommend the school at all. I went there from preschool to 4th grade and the reason I left was because I was having difficulty keeping up with the homework they would give you and when my parents went to talk to the principal to see what could possibly help me she proceeded to say that I have a mental disability because I couldn't keep up and the other kids did fine. Of course my parents were offended due to the fact that I do not have a mental disability and I have not been back ever since.

I can honestly say that this school is not one i would reccomend to anyone. The staff can be very rude at times and the kids are extremely stuck up as well. It gives Christians a bad name. I was bullied while i was their, and some of the teachers sided with the bullies. They threatened to expel ME for what was going on. They did nothing to help. The kids are so used to the same friends that they do not like to interact with any new comers. However, Dr.Byrd can seem a little rough but she was the only one that i felt actually cared about what was going on.

My son is in 4th grade. He attended a smaller private school before VVCS. The transition to this school was not difficult. The students were very helpful and the 4th grade teacher is THE BEST! We wish we could have him every year for the next 8 years. What a dedicated, Godly man. He is very likeable and knowledgable...just a wonderful, humble man. The school has a very organized feel. Any questions or concerns I have had have been addressed in a quick, efficient and caring manner.

My children have been here all their lives and there is no other school that I would send them to. All schools have their problems but ours are minimal compared to all others. The safe environment, caring teachers and Biblical teachings are the most important and VVCS strives to make these a high priority. I highly recommend this school to anyone.

When wemoved to Victorville, we looked all around to find a school for our daughter, where she would get a good education, be safe and learn about Christ. Victor Valley Christian School is that place. The techers are great, they have a friendly environment, very goog after school programs, discipline is fair, everyone is treated the same, no matter who you are or what you do for a living. Administration is pleasant, they are very professional. The principal is a very professional person, she's knowledgeable and has a caring heart. I am very happy with my daughter's progress. She is growing up to be a very good person, thanks to what she is taught. Thank You Victor Valley Christian School for making a difference in my daughter's life. Keep up the good work and I would recommend this school to anyone.

Victor Valley Christian school is a great school. I attended school there for 11 years and now my two children are attending there. The teachers are a big help. They are very friendly, inspiring and dedicated to there kids and learning. The Administration is very caring and knowledgeable. It is a great christian atmosphere. The children learn a lot of different subjects, not just the basics. This keeps them interested and wanting to learn. They have so many extras for the kids ie: hot lunch program, music, art, foreign language, P.E., G.A.T.E. etc. They also have several after school activities to keep the kids busy. I really enjoyed my time at VVCS and now my kids get to share in the great experience that I had as a child. I highly recommend VVCS.

The teachers are great, but due to a recent curriculum change they have a hard time teaching it properly. The class sizes are larger than I like even though there are teacher aides present. Be prepared for school rules & dress code to change multiple times throughout the year. Administration is difficult to deal with and refuses to see that every issue may have several sides. Discipline is not fair. For this reason parental involvement is very low. On the plus side, the teachers offer a friendly environment for learning. The school also offer a complete hot lunch program which is very good. Students are exposed to weekly classes of music, computers, spanish, and physical ed.

The quality of Victor Valley Christian School is poor. The whole program was a disaster. My son could have received a better education in a public school.

We have had our daughter go to this school for 4 years and we are very pleased with her progress. She is a loving freindly person and has been taught about Jesus.
