West Valley School 5

West Valley is a lovely school with wonderful caring teachers and principals. They have made many improvements in the last few years trying to strengthen academics and just completed a beautiful addition/renovation. I love that it goes through 8th grade. We moved here last year and our children adjusted seamlessly at West Valley. Every time I tell someone in the area where our kids go to school they respond with something along the lines of "Oh West Valley, that's a great school." The only thing they are missing in my opinion is a gifted program for advanced students. Other than that, it is a great school!

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!
