27 Parent Reviews for Indian Valley Elementary School

We were very excited for our child to start school! We did read the negative comments about Indian Valley Elementary, their staff and discipline protocols, but we still were hopeful it would be a good experience for our family. We were WRONG! The reason why there is so much parent involvement is because ...  Read more

IV is one of the great schools in Walnut Creek School District. Teachers are really really great and Principal is also very good. My daughter has been going to this school and she likes it. Good mix of students, good academics focus as well as options to enroll into various arts, drama and science classes.

My children previously attended a public school in another State that was struggling on all levels. When we arrived at IV we were hopeful but nervous. The office manager was genuinely warm and welcoming and very informative. She knew all of our names the next time she saw us and has continued to be ...  Read more

Terrible, the teachers have no patience to deal with the kids, unless your kids are 100% obedient, don't send them there, all they do is directly send the kids to principle office no matter how tiny the fault is. Unhappy staff(including the principle), I hardly see their smiles, oh, yes, the sun probably ...  Read more

First up, our children love this school!! They return home every school day with a joy and love of learning. Indian Valley Elementary is in my view, a very special school.

The parents are extremely involved, and coming from an academically rigorous private school environment, we are pleased with the ...  Read more

School has regressed over the 4 years we have been here, so much so that we are considering moving. Parking problems have increased and some parents line up early to block the road to the school thus actually preventing access to the children in case of emergencies which is illegal. Good teachers but ...  Read more

We are new to the area, and all of our dealings with the district office, the school, the office staff, and the principal have been terrific so far. Our son loves his new school and his teacher. He received an extremely warm welcome, and issettling in more smoothly than we could have hoped. So relieved! ...  Read more

My child is going to this school, and my opinion about it is to some extent controversial. I can tell that academically the school is very strong. The teachers push children well beyond the school program. The majority of teachers are very professional: we were lucky with the 2nd and 3rd grade teachers. ...  Read more
