Some of the teachers do not care about the kids at all and the staff member, especially the leader, is very rude. They don't really have anything special to make kids have a better progress.

Valley Catholic Elementary is a wonderful school with challenging academics. Most importantly for me is that they actually care if my child learns or not. My child has regained every skill she lost during her one year at the local public school and excelled well beyond in both reading and math. In first grade, she has daily religion, reading, math then twice a week music, art, PE, social studies. They even have swim lessons each year! They all take violin in 4th grade. There are many extra-curricular activities, lots of fellowship opportunities. Older kids mentor younger ones. Testing is computerized and allows you to see your child's individual growth over the year and allows for a child working above their grade level. My younger one will be starting full day Kindy this next year. We can't wait! Note that Parents are required to provide 30 hours of school service per year (or pay additional fees).

My daughter is happy and engaged. At her previous school she did not seem challenged and had about 15 minutes of homework for the week. Now she is honestly learning and interested and involved in activities on campus. There are plenty of activities to choose from she has been enjoyed Spanish and Swim Team and is looking forward to more. There is pride in parental involvement. We all get to know each other and the children our children are in class with.

This school was perfect for my quiet, shy, average achieving child. The music and athletic programs are excellent. However, the school was not up to par when it came time for my active, over-achieving, and gifted child. It's a great school for average students. The school cannot accomodate over or under achievers.

Great teachers, terrific student body, great curriculum, great values. However, high expectations to student performance and discipline can be a bit stressful for both the parents and the child.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
