40 Parent Reviews for Green Valley Christian School
Green Valley Christian School is living up to its excellent reputation. My son started second grade here this year, and I cannot believe the consistency, academic expectancy, and values that are being taught. He is being challenged- finally.

The Start of Our Son's First Day of Kindergarten did not go well. We spoke to someone at the front desk and expressed our concerns. Two days later the principal and vice principal invited us to the office where they apologized for the confusion. Through our 1/2 hour talk with the principal we realized
... Read more that things happen, no one is perfect, and in the confusion of so many students starting school all at once things are bound to happen. They also told us that they are constantly striving to improve procedures by talking with parents. From our talk we as parents realized that the school did care very much about our concerns and more importantly they Did care about our Child and his well being. They told us that their doors are always open to express our thoughts and concerns. They told us that we could check on our child during school when ever we liked. And when we did peek into the Class room we saw our son singing and dancing and having a great time, which made us smile. Our heart did hurt on the first day as we felt our son's pain - But, our heart now feels the joy that our son is happy and is in good hands at school. Thank you to the Principal and Vice Principal for Listening. Read less

Great value for a great education. We have been there for 3 years and she is at a grade above reading and math. You will have homework and a longer day ( but that is it use to be going to school from 8-3 not 9-1) they are adding more to the school. I am hoping the middle school adds more sports and gym.

Very dis-satified with the education and security at this school! I had my daughter enrolled in an after hour class and another parent was permitted to take my daughter from this class and leave the school grounds without my permission. No one at the front desk asked for a note nor checked the list

And, the school failed to accept any blame for the ordeal! If you are considering enrolling your child and would reconsider it. I should have. Read less

When choosing a school for my daughter I had several things I wanted for my child. First and foremost, I wanted a great education without going bankrupt. Secondly, as a single mother relying on " before and after school care", the school needed to be a place I felt my daughter would be safe and enjoy
... Read more ( for 9+ hours/day ). The safe key staff is uncomparable!!! They take care of these children, play with them, teach them, mentor them, and love them! The teachers, TA's are approachable, answer questions, and truly care about your child.This school offers specials such as: art, computer, music, and PE. There are also a lot of field trips which are great - it gives the parent an opportunity to meet other parents, classmates, and teachers while learning. The Principal and Vice Principal are very involved in the school. They know each child by name (not just a few...all of them), they know the parents. Every morning both are outside greeting the parents, and children with a friendly smile. Green Valley Christian School has proven to be the BEST choice for us. I would highly recommend it. The personal attention and family atmosphere while getting a superior education is PRICELESS! Read less

This school appears to be overcrowded. There is a TA but this does not make up for the large class sizes. Comparable to public school. No good sports opportunities. Has religion but we need more than this to succeed.

I agree. I have one in K and one in 1st grade. The pre k and k teachers are very loving but this does not make up for the outrageous class sizes. Unless your kids are all academic then there is really nothing else as sports are not important here. There are some very comperable public schools out there

From the moment my husband and I walked into the school, we knew this is exactly where our daughter needed to be. From the principal to the teachers and staff all I have to say is well done! Yes, tuition is kind of pricy, but for my daughter to be coming home everyday after school so excited to be going

The part I LOVE the most as well, is they welcome parents to be involved and interact with your child! What schools allows that? Read less

My daughter used to attend GVCS, and we were happy while she was there. Due to the economy I had to change schools. It was then that I found my child who was getting A's and B's in all subjects was 6 months to a year BEHIND in all subjects. It was very dissappointing to say the least. I had to hire

All the teachers that we had were amazing, but even with the TAs in the classroom I think they are overwhelmed with class size. Read less

My daughter has attended GV Christian School since she was 5 years old and is still attending in the Prep/High School! This school has more than lived up to what I expected when we first came here 10 years ago. The school has poured love and knowledge into her since the first day she arrived. I am
