I have had three children go through Valley View. Each of my children had different strengths and one had severe learning disabilities. The teachers, staff, and community is the best. Anyone that is looking for a small town feel with a school program that could compete with any school academically no matter what the size then Valley View is where you should have your children.

I totally agree with the parent whom is outraged. Valley View cares nothing about the children or the education that they kids recieve. The staff doesn't communicate serious incidents that a parent should know about and I know this first hand from my 1st grader. He was approached by another student with some pills and thank goodness he went straight to the principle with this. However I had to hear it from my child when he came home instead of the school calling me and telling me what went down. I also think that you are just a number if you don't have a big name in sports not only in the middle and high school but also in the pee wee league at kercher park. I am so glad that we moved out of this school district and I am very happy with the new school that we attend.

I am outraged by the parents and staff of this school system. We moved here 2 yrs. Ago and were moving. This school system has no direction for there sports or there schools. They dont have teachers that will go the extra mile to help kids that have disabilities they just do there job and leave. They never send papers home to help your child unless you request them. There sports are about the sorriest I have ever seen they are all about winning and no regards for the childrens feelings. If you ask alot of parents youll find out they all talk about the sports and the schools.Im so glad were moving!

Valley View brings new meaning to the word incompetency. They are disorganized, they make up their own rules as they go, and they have no concern for the students.

Valley View stands for traditional educational values and strives for excellence at all times. We are fortunate to have such quality in education and sports in this small town in America. I am vVery proud of our school district and its management.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
