I went to Valley when I was a child. I have a daughter completing her 2nd year there and a son who is starting 1st next year. This school is the best elementary in the district! Always has been. The new principal this year is so much better than the last, she continues to improve a school that didn't even need it! The teachers are all great and work with not only the ones who need help but the ones who achieve higher as well. I made sure I moved into a home in Valley Mills area. This is the top one out of all 5 elementaries in area!!!!!! A++++++
