Valley Elementary School4

The teachers are incredible, and very caring for the children. Mrs. Flowers is the best first grade teacher and mrs. Requejo has been wonderful so far. My daughter was home sick and she actually called to check on her, even though it was only two days. Love that! she even calls every parent when their child gets 100% on their spelling test. This is our second year here and i am very happy.
This is a wonderful school! We went to great pains to make sure our kids went to this school! Ms. Baldwin and Ms. Townsend were absolutely wonderful teachers, and Ms. Fischbach is turning out to be great also! The librarian is wonderfully friendly and knows each student by name, and many of the parents too!
Valley Elementary is the best! The teachers are creative and love the children. The school provides awesome field trips, and the pricipals are totally dedicated to safety and order at the school. Two thumbs up for Valley Elementary.
My children enrolled 1/2 way through school and were welcomed with open arms, the libraian is the best! You can tell she loves children and my kids loved her from day 1! I have 5 children, 3 attend Valley and I found the majority of the teachers to be excellent. As with any school the office staff may need more training to deal with children, but have been pleasant 98% of the time. I found Valley to accomodate all my requests and demands efficiently.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Valley Elementary and am shocked by the previous reviews. I have found the principal and teachers at Valley to be very friendly and encourage excellence in their students. Many are creative and work outside the box. Ms. Baldwin is a prime example of this. In a word, she's awesome! As far as parental involvement is concerned, the PTA is extremely involved in school activities. Many parents, working or not, volunteer their time, either at school or at home to help teachers or the librarian to make the school better. Maybe the previous reviewers don't actually see this happening. I believe that many parents are actively involved in school activities, in one way or another. I'm proud to say that my son attends Valley!
This school could definately use some TLC. Very little parental participation. Many families opt for private school. Low standards and expectations is aparent when entering this campus. Not exactly the kind of place educated parents would send their children. Needs some new staffing or some modern teaching seminars for the teachers.
