As a parent of a 6th grade child who attends this school I feel that the curriculum is not challenging enough for our child. Our child, a typical 6th grader with average intelligence and a normal attention span complains to us that the school work is too easy. She has maintained all A's for the past two years at Valley Forge. I as a mother was concerned with the lack of homework she didn't have everyday after school. I even called her 5th grade teacher (who was an amazing lady and excellent instructor) by the way. I was told by her that if they finish their homework in class they wouldn't have any to take home. Valley Forge has had four different principles in three years. They seem very disorganized and the administation/transportation staff doesn't seem to know what the left hand is doing from the right. As any parent I want the best for each and everyone of our children. I can honestly say I don't feel like this school can give our child the best possible education he/she can obtain.
I have two children that have gone through the Valley and two that are still at the Valley. I loved this school before all the changes. The new schools are nice, don't get me wrong but I am not happy with some of the new staff. I miss all the Valley staff. Before it was a nice warm atmosphere now its kinda stuffy.
My daughter is just finishing up K and is looking foward to 1st grade. overall I think its a great school. I adore the principal Mr. Housh, he is great with the kids and is not afaid to show is fun side. Her teacher Mrs Dudis is wonderful while my daughter is above average she still kept her learing and interested in school. I truly appriciate that in a teacher.Thank you to all the staff at Valley Forge!
My daughters, ages 8 and 6, attend Valley Forge and we are very happy with the school. The principal and teachers have been very attentive to the needs of my children. Like another parent who has posted a review, I cannot say enough good things about Valley Forge!
By far the BEST elementary around! The teachers are WONDERFUL the school security, great! My son is in an IEP and this year he is a complete different child! Feel safe and confident sending your children to this school. They are very well taken care of. Can't say enough great things!
My daughter is in Kindergarten at valley forge elementary and so for she loves it, which in turn means I love it. She seems to be learning a lot. I give a big thanks to Mrs. Dudis.
I have had a great experience with Valley Forge. My son is Autistic and so has special needs which are accomidated wonderfully and so far (he is in the 4th grade) his teachers have been a great help. With early intervention, and IEP set up in Kindergarten and constant school/parent meetings and communication my son has come a long way. Great school! Miriam Yost, Parent of special needs child
I am very happy with Valley Forge Elementary. This school is very family oriented and does alot to involve parents with thier child's learning. This school encourages kids to have fun while learning. Phonics are taught very early and have helped my son tremendously.It truley feels as though every teacher knows all of the children, even if they are not in thier class. I feel very proud and blessed that my child attends this school.
