I've been a student for 4 years, and enjoyed every minute of it. I like that classes are small, so the teachers can focus on everyone, and it's not crowded. The teachers are creative and do lots of field trips. I like when they do school musicals. We do them twice a year. We did a historical one last year, and I was George Washington. This year I got baptized, and I owe a lot of my decision to being at CVCS, and my time getting to know God there.

I have 4 children at Central Valley. It is a highly academic school, with a warm family environment. There are about 80 students at the school, with mostly all of the students knowing and supporting each other. During the first few weeks the whole school goes on a 3-day fieldtrip to a different part of Oregon. Staff and parents make it a huge success each year. Class size is small: Between 10 - 20. I admire how much my children have grown spiritually, and how well they learn their Bible. Even 1st graders learn new Bible stories every day, and learn how to apply them to life. The teachers are experienced and have students redo work until assignments are mastered. Grade print-out sheets go home weekly. Free busing is provided from 3 neighboring towns. Hot lunches are available 3-times a weekly. I am very impressed with this school.

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.
