The Green Vale School goes way beyond just academics...it truly develops the whole child and prepares them to be model citizens. Not only are athletics and the arts stressed from early on, character education is a huge piece of Green Vale's strength. The Green Vale School stays true to its mission of building confidence, respect and responsibility within its students in a warm, family-like environment. When my children go out in the community, I'm often approached by other parents who comment about my son's model citizenship and good manners compared to other children. I attribute much of it to the high standards set by Green Vale teachers and staff.

As a parent of a graduate as well as a current middle school student, I could not be happier with the educational experience for both my children. The small class sizes, the encouraging teachers, the challenging curriculum, the exceptional facilities, the outstanding high school placement & preparation.....I could go on, but you get the idea. The Green Vale School exceeded all of our expectations for what school should be....student, athlete, artist, citizen...your child(ren) will have the academic experience of lifetime at GVS! Don't take my word for it & don't wait through one more "OK" year for your child(ren). Check it out for yourself. Contact Green Vale today; you will be so very glad you did!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
