I love this school! Mr. Lange is an amazing principal who is very involved. The teachers are really caring and know their kids. We like that the school is pretty diverse as well. Overall, great school!

Reading some posts that say VPE doesn't focus enough on gifted children. I've had a completely different experience. I'm amazed by the things the school has done for our gifted child. Frankly, we're blown away by our experience with the regular AND gifted program. Look at the overall test scores for the school. High 90's percentiles don't lie. Teacher involvement, parent involvement, staff involvement all GREAT at tho school. I've seen treachers at evening parent activities. That level of engagement is pretty dang cool. For the most part, the teachers are highly engaged. We're incredibly pleased.

Teachers are biased based on ethnicity. Too much racial discrimination. Gifted kids don't get all the tools they need. They think they are an excellent school, that's why they don't improve in some areas.

Emphasis on assessment test too much, gifted kids are not getting enough attention

Wonderful schools and great teachers. Only negative is that they push the kids maybe too hard.

Our daughter's experience at Valley Park was awful. The behavior childrens' behavior in the classroom was very poor to each other and to their second grade teacher. Complaints made to the principal went completely ignored and unanswered.
