Valley View Elementary School5

I am proud to call Valley View our school. We have a culturally diverse community, which reflects how the world is today. The staff and adminitration goes above and beyond in caring for and educating our children. They are always trying to find new ways to improve and are willing to think outside the box. In the fall of 2013, the students will wear uniforms. I think this will create unity in our diverse community and keep the focus on education. I do wish our parent involvement was better, but I am still completely happy with our school.
The only reason this school gets any stars is because of a few specific teachers who truly care about their students. The principal and administration has gotten worse each year my children have been there. They have a huge bully problem and after repeated reports to the school, police and superintendent the bullying by these same children continues. I have stayed here because of the few good teachers however, this will be my last year.
Valley View Elementary is an outstanding school! We strive to offer many wonderful options in our curriculum. Students in grades 3-5 attend a science class taught by a science specialist every other day. Band classes are available for 5th graders. All students have Music, Art and PE for their specialists. We are a Responsive Classroom school, which means we teach a social curriculum in addition to academics, which includes: Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self-Control. The majority of Valley View staff have a Master's Degree or greater! We are a student centered school!
