Wow! My son is in Kindergarten at Valley View this year. I am also a teacher in the district, but I chose to put him in V.V. because it is our neighborhood school and I have heard so many good things about it and the teachers there. I am so glad we did. He loves his teacher and his classmates. He is learning so much, so quickly. He also adores the principal! Great job, Valley View!

There are some really good teachers at this school and there are some that are lazy and only working to get their summers off --- the principal included! I would never recommend this school. The principal refuses to acknowledge any bullying that goes on no matter how much bigger the bully is compared to your child. And if you have a gifted child, the only time they will be treated as one is when they are in the gifted program. Otherwise they will be bored beyond words. Between the bullying and the really poor teacher our daughter had, we moved her to a private school. In the end it was the best thing we could have done. She is now getting an excellent education at a school that teaches children there are consequences for their actions and poor choices. My advice: move to another elementary school district or just plan on sending your child to a private school if you want them to excel. At least until the current principal is gone, because it is very true that a group is only as strong as its leader, and this leader appears to just be counting his days until retirement.

During our first year at ValleyView, my children were immediately seen by their teachers as individuals, rather than just another student in the class. ValleyView teachers excel at communication and observation aimed at discovering a student's individual qualities. They are champions for best meeting a student's individual needs. Whether your child is sensitive, inquisitive, needing more acedemic challenges or support, antsy, shy, or boisterous, ValleyView teachers...and the principal...are truly involved and caring. ValleyView's principal is a wonderful man who sees the world through the eyes of his school children. He kneels down to speak with students eye to eye instead of towering over them. He laughs with them, guides them, and isn't eyeing his next move up toward the administration ladder like so many principals seem to. He strongly supports his staff, as well. A+
