My older son attended this school from Kindergarten through 5th grade and he is now getting his Master's degree. They gave him a good foundation for learning. He also attended the after school care program.

I believe they have the true interest of the child in their teaching and policies. They have good parent participation and community support.

My child just graduated from kindergarten this morning. I have been impressed from the first moment we stepped foot in the school. Great afterschool program. A+.

This school does have some incredible teachers. Some that go way beyond the call of duty. I would pass up a better job, if I had to move away from this school. Safe, warm, educational environment. It is a priviledge for my children to attend this school!

Happy Valley Elementary has the best teachers in the county! I have worked with oer half of the teachers while substituting as well as being a parent of a child in Kindergarten! The Kindergarten program and teachers are the best, and the most personable of any I have ever met! Thank you for a wonderful staff and great school! Crystal Blackburn
