I had 5 kids in this school, now I have 3, and all of them are A students, blew KPREP out of the water so it seems the admin is doing something right. Someone I know who is a retired educated asked me what school the kids would go to, I told them Cardinal Valley. Their remark..."That is a good school" With the new principal in place the feel is great when you walk in the doors. The staff is simply amazing ,the time they invest in the children goes above and beyond previous experiences. When a child can't wait to get up and out the door to school you know something good is happening. Thank you Cardinal Valley!
I find Cardinal Valley to be an excellent school. While all parent information and sometimes homework comes with bilingual (both English and Spanish) instructions, I find it beneficial for myself and for my daughters. The teachers are excellent and really care about the students.
Cardinal Valley is one of the most challenged schools in FCPS. Saddled with excessive turnover, deteriorating building and high transient population you would be better served by moving out of this school district.
