Well since some of the reviews below are older. I wanted to submit an updated review. Valerie is not the school it used to be, a lot of these teachers could care less about the students, not all some of them really care and it shows but overall they are teaching to a paycheck and a test. The common core teaching standard means each child gets the same amount of info whether they understand it or not. The communication with parents is next to none and the principle supports this lack of communication by being completely defensive to anything a parent says. She over talks anyone that she is not in agreement with and gives 100 reasons why. Never taking some responsibility or requiring the teachers to take some responsibility for their actions or lack there of. There are several parents taking their children out and stating the same thing, it is no longer the academic excellent school it used to be. So if you are thinking of Valerie make sure you do your research and see to it that your child is a match with the teacher you are handing your most precious asset to.
I love Valerie! My daughter has been there since Kindergarten. She is now in the 6th grade, she's been on the honor roll every year and participates in the enrichment program, safety patrol and handbell choir. She loves her school and her teachers. I know when I drop her off in the morning, she will be safe and cared for. All of her teachers (save 1) have been excellent and have taken their commitment to the children seriously and obviously take great joy in their jobs. Valerie is a Great school!
Valerie is a wonderful school. My son has been there since kindergarten and now is in 2nd grade. He is in their enrichment program which is excellent. The teachers are great with the students and they enjoy teaching. I would recommend Valerie to anyone looking for a good quality elementary school education for thier child.
My daughter has been at Valerie since the first grade. She is in the third grade now and we love it. It is a good school and she loves it! She has done very well and has been on the honor roll every year.
i was disappointed by the scores on this site for this school but then i know what i have experienced and seen at this school and i know it must be wrong. i know that my child is very happy going here and loves going to school. the princple is very outgoing and respectful to the children and parents. they expect parents to be directly involved in their childs learning. i am just really happy with the school and faculty. i also know my child is too because of how she feels about the school and faculty. keep up the good work.
