I will never send my child to Valley View Elementary School again. There was no support from staff on helping my child who was struggling. They really dropped the ball, I had to take my child out of the school to receive a better education.

The staff at Valley View Elementary School work very hard to create a very positive environment for children to learn and grow in. I really love this school because the teachers are very serious about their work and have great concern for the children they work with. They take a great interest in making sure the children achieve. The staff is tries to give confidence in other areas as well such as; social etiquette and self esteem. Valley View is an excellent learning environment for all students and encourages positive growth for the staff as well.

VVES has been very good for my p-k, he has excelled beyond his expectations , his teacher and staff have gone above and beyond. The principal is very hands on and seems to really care about her kids as she calls them. Even down to the janitor and cafe staff all are pleasant. I have no complaints

I am very pleased with Valley View Elementary School. My daughter has been in the TAG program for 3 years now, and her brothers have attended the school as TAG along children. I have read the comments that state the school doesn't have structure and I disagree. In my opinion, this school goes out of their way to keep an open dialogue with their parents. I have had an excellent relationship with every teacher that has ever taught my 3 children. I attend parent teacher conferences, back to school nights, MSA workshops and several other events at the school. I have received phone calls when my children were not doing their assignments or following classroom rules. Creating an open dialogue is not only the responsibility of the school; it is also the parent s responsibility. I have been impressed with the teachers, Ms. Yates, the school s principal and vice principal.

I am very disappointed with this school. it has no structure the teachers are not professional and do not I mean do not have customer services skills towards parents or students. I do not want my child going to this school next year. It very sad that they do not have a before/after care program for the students, nor do they have a tutor for the youth. I would like to be a parnet that advocates for the school but not for this one. A very dis-pleased parent...

I am very disappointed with this school. it has no structure and the majority of the teachers seems like they are the kids age. they have no organization and no afterschool programs for the kids.

I would highly recommend Valley View, but only the TAG program. The teachers for this program are very interested in the children and helping them to achieve their potential. These are brighter children and are generally better behaved that the other children. The curriculum for the TAG program proved to be a very good springboard for advanced level classes later on. I strongly encourage parental involvement; the more the teachers see you, the more they'll keep up with you and your child. Valley View also participates in the PG County music program and the music teacher is very enthusiastic.

My son is new to V.V.E.S., but so far this school is a dream come true. The last school my son attended was deplorable at best. But Vally View is like a breath of fresh air. The teachers and staff seem to truly care about the well-being and education of the students and it shows. It seems like there are always some renovations or updates being made to the school, which shows me that there is much pride there. In a county that has a well-deserved horrible reputation, Valley View stands out to me as a beacon of hope. Like most schools there could be some improvements, but overall it is a wonderful school.

I've been very disappointed with this school. This school has no structure and no organization. I think that the administration of this school needs to put more effort into their professionalism and customer service to parents inquiring about enrollment. This school does not provide before/after care and I think that it makes no sense to charge students for what the school has called, 'Out of Uniform Day.' Valley View is supposed to be a TAG school but is not even a 'Blue Ribbon' school as of yet. Bottom line...Valley View needs a major improvement!

My child is intellectually challenged in a well disciplined environment. Valley View definitely stands out among similar schools in the area. Its academic programs along with strong parental involvement should be replicated in other area schools. My wife and I are well pleased with this school, and hope our younger children will be able to attend as well.

I am overall pleased with this school my children are growing and learning at a place that allows me to introduce new things. I glad my son is able to attend Pre K not all the schools have this important phase in life. Thank You.
