This school is a terrible school. I was a former student here. While there are two teachers that I just love, most of them were unhelpful and testy with students. The two teachers I loved were Mrs. Neville, who worked with my younger brother who had behavioral problems and help him a lot. The other was Mrs. Bur, who taught kindergarten and did the same. But Mrs. Neville is by far the best teacher my family has ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

My daughter has been at Green Valley since kindergarten she is now in 4th there we are extremely happy with teachers, staff and her peers. She ha excelled greatly. She has been on straight A honor roll since she started receiving grades(they use the E, G, S and U system till 3rd). The teachers, and staff are all very helpful and friendly. They are also very open to parent involvement in the classroom and out. Out of all the elementary schools in Floyd county that I have been associated with whether it was my brother or nieces Green Valley far exceeds them all. Over all I am very satisfied.

My daughter went there for a year and a half. She enjoyed the experince. I have also enjoyed my daughter going there. They have school sports that compete against other Floyd County Elemantrys. She was in cheerleading and loved it. She also made strait A's. The teachers there taught her so much. When we moved she was 1 step ahead of the BISD students. I recomend this place to anyone.

My child has attended this school for the second year in a row. I am very unhappy with the education my child is receiving. I would never recommend this elementary to any parent. The level of academics is poor and my child has not excelled in any way. The teachers do not go out of their way to help in assisting students not understanding a course, etc. I have felt that the teachers seem to act more as a strict, unfriendly college professor, rather than a nice & helpful elementary teacher.I would not recommend any Floyd County School, definately spend the extra money to send your child to a private school where they will get the education they need for their future. As I will be next year!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

About the tests


Indiana uses the A through F School Grading System to assess the overall performance of a school. For the 2011-2012 school year, schools were graded based on performance and participation levels in state standardized tests and student growth using the Indiana Growth Model. In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placment exam results and industry certification exam results.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
