My husband attended Tahoe Valley years ago. I have had one child graduate from there, one enrolled now and, two more growing old enough. What a difference a year can make.

I am very unhappy with this school. My son's class has 32 students to one teacher. There is no time to provide learning to that many kids. Their day consists of a list of work sheets ('busy work'), and if they don't finish they aren't allowed recess! Nothing new and challenging is being taught to them. ...  Read more

My kids have been here for two years. We are sad we have to move from the area or they would be going to this school again next year. We have had a great experience at Tahoe Valley and can only hope that the new school will be as good.

My child has been attending Tahoe Valley since Kindergarten and I love the care and love his teachers have shown throughout the years.

My daughter entered Tahoe Valley Elementary School in 1997. I was very apprehensive about this. I had checked out private schools and wasn't too impressed with them. I then went to a few functions at Tahoe Valley and met the principal and I was feeling very comfortable. So I decided to send her to Tahoe ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
