Our twins recently started at Valley Oaks Elementary and we couldn't be more pleased. In fact, we chose to build a house in this school zone because we were so impressed by the principal and the school's overall reputation. The teachers are all so kind and we are amazed by how much our kids are learning. We also really appreciate that our kids truly love going to school each weekday. Since we are new to the area we have been pleasantly surprised by how warm and friendly the other parents are. The school is currently being rebuilt and will be ready in January of 2015. I would highly recommend VOE!

The other reviews are spot on. This school is a caring and nurturing environment while also being challenging and focused on learning. They have great extra curricular opportunities and the kids go to art, music, PE, etc. Everything has totally exceeded our expectations. The school community is also fantastic. Parents are fun and friendly, teachers really care about the kids and the principal is involved and visible at events inside and outside of school hours. We couldn't be happier.

This is an amazing school! We love the teachers and the staff! My daughter's 3rd grade teacher goes above and beyond for her students. We have had the best experience at VOE and would highly recommend this school.

Our children came to VOE from private schools, we could not be happier with our choice. The principal is very supportive of the teachers and it has a wonderful affect on how the school feels. I have spent more time in my children's classes and the teachers are welcoming, accessible and clearly care about each student. At private we felt the parent involvement was controlled by administration too much, at VOE I can have lunch with my kids any day! The school is being rebuilt next year, and the staff and kids are excited despite a temp location, but it's the people that make this place. The parents are friendly and supportive of the school, it's been a great experience!

This school is a hidden gem in sbisd. Don't be fooled by the test scores, look at the scores broken down by ethnicity and you will see it competes with the schools south of I-10. There is a bit more diversity, which we love, our children's eyes are opened not everyone lives in a house and has two cars. The ESL parents are very kind and clearly care about their children's education. The PTO does an amazing job bridging the gap between the ESL and non-ESL classes. The staff is reported to be the best in the district, and teachers tend to stay because of the principal and parental support. I saw the post from the former private school folks, the school is filled with families that once went private and they all seem happy. The principal gives tours, come check this school out!
