Best school ever!!! I would never want my kids to go anywhere else in the county.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 21, 2009

Valley View is the school that I would recommend any and all elementary students to attend. I am a parent of three children all of which have attended VV. My oldest son actully was a transfer student durring his second grade year. VV teachers and staff welcomed us with open arms, and have continued to do so since. I feel blessed to be able to send my children to a school that is so supportive and encouraging to all students and thier family.

For several years VV was the top school in regard to test scores and everything else. During the past 4 years there has been a steady decline in test scores. In the past parents from all other districts transported their children to VV but sadly that is not the case now or will it be in the future if things don't change, administration and teachers. More programs and grants do not make good schools. Parent involvement is not encouraged as it was in the past administration, in fact it is discouraged. PTO is no longer in place at VV. The last years that there was a PTO it consisted of three members , there was no accountability as to the funds that were raised, no meetings were held which were open to all parents . The teachers received no help from this PTO, but the administration did.

Valley View is an excellant place for children to learn. My son is in 3rd grade and has attened Valley View since preschool. We love his school. The teachers here really take time to make sure that your child learns all he can.

Valley View is a wonderful school. It is well worth the drive from the other end of the county to allow your child to attend. All students are encouraged and allowed to excel, even when this means cooperation from higher grade teachers assisting with your child. Children with learning disabilities are also encouraged to be their best, and a special effort is made to do what it takes to help in this area. Fighting is not heard of. They have a strick policy about bullies. Each student signs a contract promising not to be a bully or allow other children to bully. If a student doesn't try to help in one of these situations they are considered a bully and must face simular consiquences. The parents and teachers are very involved with finding ways to assist each other.

Valley View is the best School in the District. Most children that go to Middle School from Valley View, are in the Accelerated programes. My children learn all that can be taught, and the teachers make sure they do,,,
