my daughter attended union valley from 2-5th and it is an excellent school. the teachers AND administration all care about the children and it is reflected in their teaching. the only two criticism i found were 1) there seriously needs to be more diversity in the teaching staff 2) gloucester twp schools should re-institute playgrounds for the children. UV is a great school and i hope that it stays that way!
I would advise this school to allow its young students to master the basics in math, reading and writing. I think they are moving way to fast for most of these kids. Their minds are not mature enough to absorb the informatiom that they are required to learn espeacially in the k-1 through k-3. Slow down......
its a very hands on school and the parents are always involved in helping
Two of my children passed throught this school, It has the best teachers and staff I have ever delt with.
so far i am very impressed by the my children's teachers, the programs offered, and thier focus on communcations with the ; the teachers are very positive and offer con't. positive reinforcemnt and its a beautiful building
The administration is so kind and accessible to the children and the parents. Any concerns I have had are addressed and communicated clearly with resolve. The teachers are fantastic too. Always nurturing the kids and encouraging them to be prepared for their next step in life. Union Valley is a great school. I am goin to miss the school, all my children are out and in middle and high school now. I would highly recommend this school to anyont wanting the best fulfilled education with such a caring staff. I cannot more kind words to the principle and vice principle. They have made this school a terrific place to grow. The ladies in the office are just the best too. Thanks to you all. Thank you for all your great guidance. My kids still come back to visit. 'They love you guys'
We have been with Union Valley from the first day the doors opened! We have one child attending UV and two graduates. The best word to describe Union Valley is 'FAMILY'! Everyone at UV cares about the children. Each child is treated as an individual and their needs met from extra help to advanced learning. We have witness many programs first hand and happy with the results. We will be very sad when June '08 rolls around as our youngest moves onto middle school. We feel fortunate and blessed to be a part of the Union Valley Family. We could not have asked for a better environment for our children to grow and flourish!
I am very pleased with Union Valley. My son is doing excellent thanks to his teachers and the other staff. It is a very friendly and informative environment for children to attend. I couldn't be more pleased with my sons overall performance since he has been attending Union Valley. The principals are excellent and on top of things. All the staff is polite and helpful.
I think UNION VALLEY is excellent! My son finished 5th grade and my daughter is in 4th. Every year since the school opened has been awesome. I have been nothing but pleased w/ every teacher,office staff members and principals ! Both my children are enjoying the outstanding EXCEL program. Thank you to the wonderful,caring staff of UV!!

I have a child in kindergarten and I am completely satisfied with every this school is about the back to school night was nothing less that perfect and all the teachers and principals were great
Union Valley is one of the best schools in our area. Every time I call I get a nice and helpful person on the phone. The teachers are fabulous. The teachers believe that communication is so important and as a parent I feel informed all the time, not only about my students progress but about upcoming events and so on. Everyone in this school takes pride in their jobs and appreciate the children as much as the children appreciate them!
Academically this school is excellent. Teachers will make calls to home immediately if there is a problem, however they do have some issues regarding behavior modification in some classrooms. One of the teachers has a program where the children 'earn' money for positive behaior and 'lose' money for negative behavior. Then they 'lose' money if they have to got to the bathroom at non-approved bathroom times. So far, one 5th grader wet his pants, and one ended up in the hospital with severe abdominal pain for constipation. The teacher, instead of modifying the program to not include bathroom time, told parents they could 'opt out'-effectivley ostracizing thier child from the program with thier friends.This is a health issue and the only negative about this school so far.
Union Valley is outstanding! I am impressed with their dedication to the students. They involve the parents and encourage us to get involved with our child's academic and extracurricular activities. Their Latchkey program is top notch as well.
Mr. Bohonko & Ms. Pogozelski rock. The teachers and support staff are superior. Office staff, Mrs. Carr and Mrs. Arnone are very efficient.
My 3 Children attend this school and I'm very happy with their success,and what they do to achieve it is excellent. Satified Union Valley Mom
