I am a parent and an educator. This is the worse school we have ever encountered, totally unprofessional, the students are at risk. If a person walks, talks, and breaths, they qualify to be hired as a teacher or as a sub at this school. We transferred our children to private school. Medina Valley teachers unqualified and psychotic, should not be in the classroom. My husband is a high school teacher! I am an educator in a private school. Medina Valley is a joke, a nightmare.

This school is a disgrace to public school. My children attended this school less than six months. My horrors student was told my a teacher that she must be bipolar. My high school student was jumped in the locker room while he was naked. Although he did not hit the other 2 students, my son was still suspended. My third child was not allowed to used the restroom the entire day. She had an accident and was made to sit in her soiled clothes the rest of the day. When all of these instances took place I contacted the school. I was told an administrator was get back to me each time. I'm still waiting. I moved my children to a character school, where I was told all 3 children where behind.

My child has had a colorful experience at this school. She was bullied, and had to deal with a friend's drama in her first year here. We dealt with her being bullied and I think she is stronger for it. The school staff helped us deal with the drama. She feels safe and supported by her teachers now. Though I do question some of the school politics and how the children have been involved. Such as a beloved teacher being watched in hopes of hiring a younger teacher who would receive lower wages. I wish a teacher had acknowledged the bullying while it was ongoing, and communicated with me. I applaud my daughter, her friends and the nurse's office for their support. I appreciate the teachers who have encouraged her and made her days here wonderful ever since. I like the majority of the schools programs.

We love the way Medina Valley has it's Middle School program set up. They are preparing the kids in 6-8th for success. Sixth graders have their own building which gives them the opportunity to adjust at their own pace, and then seventh and eighth are together in the same building. The two buildings are on the same campus (right next to each other) which is very convenient. The school programs are top notch. The programs are not nearly as large as SA schools, but the kids love it just the same. Parents in Medina Valley are VERY involved with school activities, and it really shows with the amount of quality we are receiving from the School Administrators. We are very happy to have our kids in school here.
