This is an all-around amazing school. Academically, it s top-notch. It s big --something like 600 students in 4th 5th & 6th grades but the people working in the office address every parent by name. The teachers are not just outstanding educators; they are also warm, sweet people who try to connect with each child. My daughter is a pretty sensitive, emotional girl (as are many 10yr-olds) and she has developed close bonds with all her teachers. She s very happy there and she s doing very well. She requires accommodations for a mild hearing impairment and the school couldn t be more supportive. Rather than trying to dictate her accommodations to me (as her last school did), and quibble over expenditures, they deferred to her audiologist s instructions, copied them, word for word, into her education plan, and follow them (detailed as they are) to the letter.

Overall Round Valley is an excellent school. The administration and teachers are very responsive to any questions and concerns and get back to you promptly. My daughter transferred from a another school and Round Valley took all measures to make the adjustment seamless. The emphasis is more on Math and Science than in other areas. Evaluations of student's progress are frequent and well-presented. I would recommend this school to anyone.
