My child has attended Valley View for 5 years. The teachers work very hard. My child has learned so much about the world at school. I wish kids who were disrespectful in class would have more consequences or be sent elsewhere so my child's education is not interrupted on a weekly basis.

I feel that the school could be better in may areas, starting with communications. I feel that alot of pressure is put on the teachers to meet AYP and that stress has been passed down to the students. The teachers work really hard and are asked to work harder, it is hard to keep good teachers around.

My son attended Valley View for 5 yrs, I finally pulled him out due to lack of communication, and academic differences between myself and the administration. In the 5yrs there I rarely received any notices sent home in a timely manner. The principal does not handle any discipline issues, but rather

Although I requested that my son get homework, is was only given when he reminded the teacher. Now that he has homework on a regular basis it has been a struggle for him to learn how to budget his time, but has adjusted well. My child's education is to important to wait for the school to get on track. Read less

Valley View at one time was a wonderful school; classes were smaller, teachers could spend more one on one time with the students. They also had an excellent Special Learning teacher who was took the time to work with your student individually on their learning problem. Now that the community is growing
... Read more so rapidly our classes are filled over capacity and teacher are over worked and under-appreciated. Very few parents make time to talk to teachers about their student unless there is a problem, attend program geared toward improving the schools academic aptitude or just the extracurricular activities. When there is a problem the parent refuses to take responsibility for their child s actions and blames teachers. I think to improve the quality of our school we need to improve the quality of our community involvement. For five years, my kids have been improving within Valley View, and I love it. Read less

I think Valley View has a few wonderful teachers that try to stay on the cutting edge of acedemic instruction techniques. However, I do not feel that all the staff, including the principal, have the best interest of the children in mind. There is little focus on any subject except reading/literacy.
... Read more The only homework assignments are reading daily for at least 30 min. Contrary to the principal's beliefs, this doesn't help a child who struggles in math. Aside from my disagreement with the principal, there is an issue of communication. There is almost none. Parents are hardly ever informed of any information which is vital to parent involvement. Mailings do not go out on time. Only a few parents were informed of summer programs last year which would've been beneficial or just plain fun for their children. More parents would be involved if they knew how & when meetings/activities are. Read less
