The teachers and Principle are very good and really care for the students. If you have to deal with the Special Education department it is a whole different issue. Most of the department is caring but a few bad apples can ruin the most important relationship a special needs child has, his parent and the school.

Valley as an elementary school has the right mix of educational and social along with letting the students be themselves and be kids. Our child is being prepared for an enjoyable American future. Our family is happy and grateful. Thank you, Valley!

My son spent his first 3 years (K-2) at Struble. He absolutely hated it. He was constantly bullied and mocked for his disability - with little or no action on Struble's part. The Bensalem Twp. School District re-districted last Summer, 2008. My son was sent to Valley. WOW!!!! The faculty and, especially, the principal are incredible. Very communicative and - get this - they actually enforce the 'no bullying' rule!! The school nurse(s) have taken care of him on practically a daily basis. I literally trust them with his life and have never once been let down in any way shape or form. The education program is awesome and the teachers and faculty are always informative and very friendly. If you want the private school experience without the expense and time required to accurately place your son or daughter in a private facility, Valley is the place to go.

Valley is the greatest! I am an educator, and I am very picky when it comes to the education of my own children. My oldest child is now entering 2nd grade, and we love it here! Whenever we come in for a special event, conference or other reason, we are always welcomed with open arms. My 2 younger children feel very comfortable here, and can't wait to be old enough to start Kindergarten so they can go to Valley. My husband and I feel that this is a wonderful place for our children to learn and grow. We had briefly considered private school, but now we are convinced that we made the right chioce for our daughter. This is a 5 star school all the way!

My son went to Valley for 2 years and I was so disappointed. He needed special education and a week before 2nd grade started they tell me they did not have enough teachers to teach my child. He now goes to Struble and is doing wonderfully there! The teachers are keep me informed everyday of his progress. At Valley I would have to wait for days for an answer or get 'surprised' by his progress at meetings without any warning that he had a problem.

I was so disappointed in Valley that I took my son out and I am paying for a private school. The principal and teacher actually told me he did not belong there and would never be able to learn fast enough to be there. He He has mild CP and they want nothing to do with children with disabilities. In his new private school, they teach at least one grade above what Valley teaches and my son has been on the honor roll almost every report card for the past two years.

Valley has given my children help in so many areas that they where behind in from the former school they had attended. Two weeks into Valley we were notified that both my children where behind in a few subjects and they gave them the help they needed to catch up on there work. They just put the extra effort into their learning that their former school did not do and thanks to them they are doing wonderful.

Valley is a wonderful school. The staff is warm and nurturing. They embrace all students and create an environment that is safe and inviting. The students are able to take the necessary educational risks to grow as individuals; without concern for failure or ridicule. Students at Valley are valued. They grow academically and emotionally with the support of all that enter the school. Valley has programs that address the special needs of students. They are implemented quickly and consistently. Valley is a gem that far out-shines most elementary schools.
