I also paid out of district tuition to remove my children from this school due to bullying issues that the both the principal and the vice principal refused to address. West Valley's curriculum appears to be 1-1 1/2 years behind the in town districts in both reading and math, and both students have had to play 'catch up' now that they are in town. The gap appears to begin in 3-5th grade. Neither student was taught multiplication tables, for example.
Teachers and staff are wonderful. However, my student came to this school from a Kalispell school and West Valley seems to be way behind in reading and math. My child is bored learning the same stuff learned last year at the other school.
So awesome with kids with reading issues...just an amazing school.... They truly are about the child, not the 'status'. Bravo and a job well done!
I love this school. Teachers and staff are great. Could not ever find a better school for your child to get a great education and very safe.
i had to take my kids out of this school because the principle was not taking care of the bullying there
Excellent school. Teachers are kid and caring. Great sense of family and true caring for studnets welfare. Great parent community.
