My grandson tried out for one of the sports teams this year and made varsity. We were so proud of him. Before the competitive games started he was bumped down to JV because boys from anther sport now joined the varsity team. It was a numbers thing. My grandson was humiliated but continued to attend ...  Read more

My daughter has been attending this school for 2 years. Most of the teachers care and help the students but due to so many students that cause disruptions in class by violently acting out its difficult for the teachers to spend the time needed to teach those students that want to learn. They need more ...  Read more

Some gripes I have is the ridiculous ...  Read more

Very disappointing. There are some very good teachers at Valley Vista who truly care and love what they are doing. Unfortunately there are many more who do not. Teachers that are consistently out and being replaced by subs, Teachers that do not grade papers then lose them, and do not enter grades. There ...  Read more

I believe that this school is overcrowded and the teachers and staff are overwhelmed; most of the energy is spent on disciplining the students rather than educating them ; I believe that most of the teachers are caring and capable ; most of them do respond to my e mails, but some do not . I believe ...  Read more

I recently had my first interaction with the Principal and her staff and am sorry to say it was an incredible disapointment. The staff seemed to be overwhelmed and more interested in quick resolution to keep moving than what is in the best interest of the students. The teachers seem willing to help ...  Read more

The principal is inept and has a blase attitude toward education that trickles down to the teaching staff. The school is overcrowed to the point where kids do not get to eat lunch because they spend the whole lunch period waiting in line. There are not enough lunch tables and students have to sit on ...  Read more
