8 Parent Reviews for Friendship Valley Elementary School

I would have selected zero stars if I could. The school smells like a pet store, don't know what they've been doing all summer, but NOT CLEANING.

My daughter has attended FVES for 2 years and we both love the school! I've had nothing but positive interaction with all staff and teachers.

This is a terrible school and the administration did not properly provide support for my daughter when she truly needed it. I would move before I sent my littlest one there!

I am a new teacher at FVE and thus far have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. The students are wonderful and the staff is professional and for the most part very friendly. It is obvious that as a school community, we are providing each student with the highest quality education.

I am grandmother of Carmen Mora (gr.4 student) and I attended a musical concert on 6/4/04 morning. It was not only entertaining but the quality was magnificent. The band and chorus groups sounded like a high school concert and I attribute that to the dynamic and enthusiastic direction by both Mr. Stimmel ...  Read more
