Our son has just finished kindergarten in Ms. Grigoli's class, and he absolutely loved going to school, she made the students school year pleasant and enjoyable while teaching them . Ms. Grigoli went above and beyond for her students and should be nominated for teacher of the year.
Happy with the school , my son is in kindergarden and he's doing great. Teachers are nice and responsive if you have questions.
My daughter loves Valley Road School. So far we've experienced nothing but great teachers, teacher helpers and enthusiastic parents. My only issue is keeping track of when we owe money. It would be much easier to just ask for it all up front. For example, we're sending in $10 per month on a specific day for milk, why not just collect $80 for the year? All in all however, we're happy with our school choice.
There's no homework given on Fridays and for the school breaks, and the actual homework that is assigned is simple, a 5 minute summary but there's a whole bunch of business going on from sales, donations, gift giving and more sales... Not sure if I send my child to school or to a street fair...
not impressed, the bullying program is not inforced...very 'clicky' and biased...
My son absolutely loves VRS! Their 'Bullying Program' is to be commended. From what I've seen, the parents of VRS students really care and get involved. Teachers are friendly and very easy to talk to. The Principal is firm yet pleasant. Communication between the school and parent is good. I really cannot say anything negative about VRS! Go VRS!
My daughter goes to school here and I actually enjoy hearing here tell me about her day at school. She loves school and I believe this school make it easy to love school. There is only one problem though. Both my daughter and I think there are not enough African-Americans and Hispanics in the school. There are zero African Americans and there is only about one or two Hispanics. We are not blaming the school, just suggesting it is open to more students. Other than that, This school is great and I love that my daughter can easily talk to her teachers, classmates, and all other people in the school. Also, I love the new anti-bullying group. VRS is doing a great job!
This school is awesome! I love ALL my teachers and the cafeteria food isn't bad. I love going to school everyday because my teacher makes it fun. You never know what to expect! I'm also glad to be able to play with boys and not have bullys pestering me about it. Also, I'm glad my teachers are easy to talk to.
This school is great. My daughter has a great time there. There are almost no bullys and she and myself can trust the teachers.
