13 Parent Reviews for Valley Charter Elementary School

Valley Charter Elementary School is a warm and welcoming school. The teachers are loving and smart. The education my kids are getting is unsurpassed and the individualized expectations have really been put the test! Conflicts between kids are not always handled by the aides on the yard, but if they reach ...  Read more

Funny thing about writing this review is that I don't attend Valley Charter. But lots of my friends' families are there and they LOVE it. I've heard nothing but good stuff about it. I loved the tour myself. If we get in, we're going! Please ignore my star ratings - it's not fair to rate a school that ...  Read more

I agree this is an excellent school. I also have never had anybody speak in Spanish. Who ever wrote that review is not saying the truth. I say go check for yourself and you will be amazed what a marvelous school this is :-)

High praise to all the teachers at ...  Read more

The school, and it's community, talk about community building and embracing diversity, but it is ALL TALK and absolutely NO action! Most of the founding parents, that talk about "including" everyone, are happy that they will be out of there before he 50% diversity,HAS to be implemented, because its written ...  Read more

VCES is a wonderful school! We made a tough decision to change schools mid-year and the transition could not have gone better. Amazing and nurturing teachers, differentiated instruction so that children learn more effectively, and a true sense of community, make the school stand out. Though the school ...  Read more

We feel so fortunate to be a part of the community that is Valley Charter. No it isn't perfect and lacks some of the bells and whistles of larger, more established schools. There is no library or science lab for example. But the classroom environment, I think, is far more stimulating than the typical ...  Read more

To damm it with faint praise - Valley Charter is better than most public schools. Unfortunately, here is a lot of lip service about differentiating instruction for learning differences but very little real understanding or meaningful support. As a former parent, I found the Principal and teaching staff ...  Read more
