17 Parent Reviews for Burton Valley Elementary School

Great teachers from K to 5th. Lots of fun fieldtrips, and a very happy atmosphere. One added perk: kids from Burton do much better as they move to Stanley Middle School because they've been able to make more friends in various classes vs. those from smaller schools.

Having recently moved from an area where my children attended private schools, Burton Valley is our first public school experience. I am so impressed with the quality of our Kinder Garden classrooms and the parent involvement is outstanding. My son's class is diverse in culture and Mrs. Reed and Mrs. ...  Read more

Whether or ot a school is "great" depends vastly on who you ask. Most parents at BVE that are from "around here" and have know only BVE or other California public schools will tell you they love the school. However, if you ask people who have had their kids in public schools in other states, you will ...  Read more

I had to second your comments to "I'm an incoming parent." I loved your description of the "caravan of suv's." Completely true! I've had kids at Burton Valley for more than 5 years and while I think well of the school the fact is that the earlier posting referring to residents as "stepford wives" ...  Read more

To "I'm an incoming parent in the Fall of 2010 "....you clearly have a lot to learn and since you have not yet been here long enough, perhaps you should wait before making such sweeping generalizations. There is not an ever-increasing non-white community here. Children who are different in race and ...  Read more

I'm an incoming parent in the Fall of 2010 and have lived in the area for 2 years now enjoying the preschool community. Every single parent in these two years, who has a child at BVE, has raved about the school. We specifically bought moved to the area not only for the accolades and feedback on this ...  Read more

This is an average school that pretends to be an excellent school. While it's a rather ugly public school, it's in an affluent area and the PTA asks for an initial amount of $375 from parents at the beginning of the year and parents are pummeled with fundraising all year long. All that money doesn't ...  Read more
