Both my boys love their teachers. They are great at finding ways to not only help my boys succeed but excel in school.

I love Valley Christian. The teachers are very dedicated and the school is small so the community feeling is wonderful. So glad our children get to be a part of this wonderful Christian institution.

This school was great years ago but has declined quickly. Everyone knows there are teachers that should have left years ago but nothing changes. Families are leaving in huge numbers and nobody seems to care. Bullying problems aren't dealt with and parents that raise concerns are seen as problems. I expected my child to be ahead when we left and went to public school but that wasn't the case. If this school doesn't make changes fast, they will be out of business.

Great school! My Son started in Pre-K and is now in 5th grade. We were at a neighborhood BBQ and the Mayor asked him how's school? Which he promtly answered; well actually I love it. I have the best teacher in the school. It was nice over hearing such an honest answer to the question posed to him. I have helped out at school as a parent and must say it is not a burden but a pleasure to work with the teachers and staff.

What an incredible blessing this school has been to our family. The teachers are amazing. My son's teacher consistently emails me, calls when my son is home sick and always welcomes me in the classroom. Small class sizes, a positive and caring environment, a Christ-centered education and top notch academics make this school worth every cent and more. My son is excited about school and has learned so much. I am in awe of how Christ has worked in our lives since enrolling in VCS. When I started looking, academics were my first priority. After sitting in on the first grade class, I heard the students pray for one another and, suddenly, a Christ-centered education became the top priority for my search. I was so lucky to find both at this school!

Valley Christian has been a huge part of our family's lives for the pat 10 years. Our oldest daughter started in Pre-k and just graduated from 8th grade. She will be going to Mountainview High in the fall and is entering mostly honor classes, due to the high quality of education she has experienced at VCS. She and our other child have wonderful memories of fun teachers, great friends, swimming lessons, 5th grade field trips to Astoria to learn about Lewis and Clark, 5th grade outdoor camp, and Middle School Retreats. She has had a great education with small classes, but has no apprehension about going to a large public school this year. VCS has given her confidence that has etended the classroom. We are looking forward to the new classrooms opening this fall!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
