My son attends Valley Elementary and my wife and I are very pleased with most aspects of the school. The Teachers have been excellent so far. The administration has been very helpful as well.

This is an absolutely terrible school. There are so many problems in Valley Elementary/Middle School. Overall, it is the worst place to send your kids in the Hazleton School District. The academics, student body, and extra-cirricular are all bad.

Valley Elementary/Middle School is, by far, the worst public school in Pennsylvania, and definately in Hazleton as well as the Hazleton School District. I do not believe that it has good values, the kids are bad, it is overrun by people who dont accept others for who they are...It is too disorganized ...  Read more

Principal is apathetic, period. Doesn't solve problems, doesn't interact with or lead staff or students, doesn't handle any issues - somehow he got a good vice who does her best to clean up his messes.

They would love for more parents to get involved and volunteer. ...  Read more

Valley has always been a great school with caring and dedicated faculty (with some exceptions). Since the new administration took over this year, the school feels more like a military academy. Student individuality and social skills are being eliminated. No talking at lunch or on the playground. Reducing ...  Read more

I have two children attending this school and I think it is the best school in the district. I will make sure that they stay in this shool through the 8th grade. The teachers are wonderful and the academics are good! The school is clean, the security is tight, and the discipline is in line. I feel ...  Read more

Most outstanding school in this district. I would consider other alternatives if my daughter had to attend a different Hazleton school. The teachers truly care about each student and call home when concerned. They push your child to their maximum potential. The learning support is excellent also ...  Read more
