Posted December 2, 2004

My son has been at the Valley School for two years, pre-K and now currently in the Kindergarten. We have had a wonderful and very positive experience thus far. The teachers and staff are extremely nurturing and know all of the kids by name. It is truly a school that caters to each individual need. The outdoor space is amazing and often utilized for class projects and assignments. When it is nice out, I often see entire classes outside under trees doing their classwork. It is hard to get a sense of this school on one tour, but it is the kind of community where children grow into caring and respectful adolescents. They will learn the basics well and be supported emotionally and socially as well as academically.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
