Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school has been great. The teachers go our of their way to create time to talk with you and really go above and beyond what is minimally required. The administration does their job, but could possibly be more friendly, though I guess they must stay professional. The community really cares about the school, their kids and their success and it shows.

The office staff at this school are a complete joke. We moved into this neighborhood two years ago, and decided to support the public school despite the lack-luster reviews. I now know why half the neighborhood kids leave for the three nearby charter schools. My son's teachers were amazing, and sadly, that was the only great thing about his experience there. The principal is clueless and pretends to care, but doesn't follow through (she is being replaced though, so hopefully things will now change). I have walked in on the office staff gossiping about parents and students more than once in the front office. I have rarely been greeted there, and have always felt like a nuisance when checking in for my WEEKLY volunteer time. It really seems the only people who care about the children are the teachers, and this makes it hard to really get the support students and parents need. This school is the reason we have put our house up for sale.

The people at this school were nice to my daughter... but they did not do their job at all! We encourage learning at home, but the two years that my daughter was at this school, she dropped in every single level of learning. Her math skills got worse, she lost levels in reading. This is the type of school that seems happy to just let kids slide by as long as they are likable kids.

The teachers & staff are a great bunch of people. This is just a really great school to have kids go too. The teachers are great to help a parent out if they have any questions or concerns about their child or homework. Great school.

West Valley has close to 30 teachers. My children have had about half of them over the last 6 years. Our family couldn't be happier with the support and concern we have had for our children. Mrs. Hopf has been very understanding and receptive when we have come to talk to her. We highly reccommend West Valley El. to other families!

with the exception of mrs. watson (kindergarten teacher) the teachers and principal don't care enough. when a situation arose that i needed my daughter's teacher to take care of, i was ignored. when i took the matter to the principal, i was again ignored. my kids will not be going to this school again.

I have been a teacher at West Valley Elementary for four years now. This is a school where the principal, staff, and parents all work together to support each other in doing what's best for the children. All grade level teams collaborate on a regular basis with the principal to improve student learning. The school's environment is a positive, enriching, and very supportive environment to work in. I love my school!!!
