Rural Vale is a great school, has a great principal, and has great teachers. It has been the best school in the county since the 1950's.

Rural Vale School is worth the ride I take each day for my kids to attend this school. The staff is wonderful and love each kid and teach them live skills and school work.

My child has attended Rural Vale Elementary School for 6th-8th grades and it has been fantastic! The teachers are extremely dedicated and professional. Every child matters. Rural Vale has strong experienced leadership. I am always impressed how all my child's teachers have continuously challenged him daily. The support staff is loving and caring and tough. Rural Vale is an excellent school!

I couldn't be happier with Mr. Shadden and his faculty. They work very hard to make Rural Vale a fun and exciting school for our kids.

Rural Vale is great school. The teachers care and treat the children as though they are their own. Everyone from the Principal, Teachers, Aides, and the parents have close relationships. I know many parents that drive distances to go to this school as opposed to a larger school where children get lost in the school system and fall behind.

Rural Vale is a great community but they do have problems with teaching everyone on the same level. They think if your child cannot learn it the first time just go on with the next and they will catch up. Some things are good about Rural Vale but they have along way to go to keep all the kids on the same level of Learning.

Rural Vale School is a great little country school. The faculty and staff are wonderful. They treat your child like they are part of their family. Most of the staff have worked there their entire working lives. This tells you alot about the school and community. Being a small school has alot of advantages. Everyone knows who you are and they are always ready to help if you have a problem. The community and parents are always made welcome. They have a great cafeteria, the kids love their food. The principal is Stanley Shadden, he is always friendly and nice to work for. The students really like him. Student scores on TCaps are consistantly above average. I feel this is just a wonderful school.
