I went there when I was in elementary school too. The teachers are wonderful.They really care about the students progress and they interact with you as a parent to let you know how your child is progressing in his or her school work. I love the teachers there and the whole school is GREAT!!!!!!

Of all the schools I have been to Lookout Valley is the best. Students are engaged in learning and they are the priority at the school. Teachers show a genuine interest in the achievement of their students.

Lookout Valley Elementary School is one of the finest schools in Hamilton County. It offers ample opportunity for all children to succeed. The school's staff is highly trained in Guided Reading and best practices. The school also offers extra support for students who are currently below grade level such as: after-school tutoring, Family Reading Nights, and research based interventions. The principal, Judy Solovey, is also committed to making the school as technologically up-to-date as possible. Lookout Valley is a great school and any student would be lucky to be part of the Lookout Valley family.
