We are beyond excited to be at Green Valley (we live in Keller ISD but were not satisfied with our local elementary school). Our daughter has gone to GV since Kinder and will be entering 3rd grade next year and our second child will start at GV in the fall. GV's teachers and staff go above and beyond and we feel our daughter has been challenged to be her very best. I cannot say enough!

New PTA officers this year and it was a great year. I know they would welcome any help! Wonderful school community with the needs of the scholars come first. Great test scores, high expectations, and meaningful learning for all children. This is the best school and people flock to Green Valley from all areas of city.

we love love love this school. my daughter has attended 1st, 2nd and will be going into 3rd grade. we have had a wonderful experience as far as education goes. However, the pta scared me off. the moms were very clicky and not welcoming to new parents, I would have loved to have been more involved and welcomed.

The faculty and staff at Green Valley really care about each child. You just have to observe them for a short time and you can tell.

At Green Valley, every child is encouraged to reach their fullest potential. Each child is given multiple opportunities each day to learn in their area of strength. I have been here as a teacher first, teacher/parent, and teacher again and cannot imagine being anywhere else.

I am blessed that my grandchildren attend Green Valley. Since my granddaughter first entered kindergarten there, I have witnessed the fine teachers and staff that enjoy their jobs, enjoy the children, and enjoy each other,. Having taught for 27 years, I find it reassuring to know that 'my kids' are in such capable hands. Thanks to each one you for making school a good experience for my grandchildren.

I thoroughly enjoy working with an exceptional group of teachers and administrators. My daughter attended Green Valley Elementary from Kindergarten through 5th grade. She is very well prepared for middle school and I am not at all concerned about her academically. Green Valley believes in their students and are glad to help their students reach their academic potential. We know all children can succeed with the support they so deserve from their parents, teachers and administration.
