I am very happy to see the 4 star rating for Valor from parents, though we are always working to make that 5 stars. However, I do not understand a "Great Schools" rating of 3 out of 10. Valor Middle School has met AYP (Annual Yearly Progress) goals the last two years, and in 2009 was recognized by the state for our incredible progress in closing the achievement gap. A rating of 30% for a school that has brought its test scores up by 40-50% in the past 6 years calls into question the system used for rating. Those interested in a different view of Valor should visit these sites: Video on Valor's success: http://video.orvsd.org/ode/Valor-Middle-School.mov Article on Valor's success: http://www.ode.state.or.us/superintendent/priorities/valor---woodburn-independent.pdf

My son blossomed at Valor, going from a shy child with few friends to a happy, well-adjusted boy. His homework is challenging, he gets to study two languages, and he participates in music and sports. The school has a welcoming environment and great teachers and staff. Our children are very lucky!

you state the test score results but it's so skewed because close to 90% of this school is second language english. that has to affect the percentages.... so when you rate the school you should take those factors into account. This is a very active school in regards to parent involvement. every thursday they have a parent night where they focus on one of the learning areas of the school--for ex: explorations night (pe, art, drama, music...), or language arts night, science night, sports night, and so on....
