Love, love, love this school! We moved our daughter here for third grade and she is a completely different child! She was not academically challenged at her last school but PV creates a rigorous and fun school environment!

We are fortunate to live just blocks away from such a wonderful school. The teachers are fantastic--energetic and interested in their students. A majority of the teachers have been there for the eight years we've been at the school, and many have been there much longer. Our PE teacher retired after 35 ...  Read more

There is no accountability with the principal and the staff. The teacher turnover is high and the administration is clueless on what is happening in the classroom. The vision and strategy for the school is sound, execution is very poor.

Our dd's teacher was excellent and really works well with the kids -- but all the teachers we've encountered have been very good. The principal is "aces" in our book. What an incredible leader! Specials are truly "specials" ...  Read more

Very low turnover of staff mean my kids see the same happy teachers from year to year. Principal makes sure that every teacher is committed to bringing the best out of every child. Pride, accountable and involved community. Love this school!!!

Prospect Valley is a great school! Even with some staff changes, everyone has pulled together and made the school run as wonderful as ever. Prospect Valley is one big community of staff, kids and parents working together! Good Job to the staff and parents for making things fall into place. All the ...  Read more

I was very disappointed with the care my child received at this school 2008-2009 school year. We had numerous issues with my child's teacher, all of which were excused by the principal, and the teacher not held accountable for her actions. Her actions made my child hate school, when prior years he ...  Read more
