Overall, this school needs a teacher makeover. They need inspiration and a more progressive and engaging approach. These kids are being taught traditionally and with the drill and kill homework method. Also the student teacher ratio is wrong - its more like 30:1

As a student of Valley Middle School, I believe that Valley really is the place to be. The teachers are extremely nice, and they make me feel like I want to be at school. I don't think the school needs to improve, because I love it just how it is. As I said before, Valley Middle School is truly the place to be.

As a parent of two VMS students, I can say with a great deal of confidence that the current principal and vice principal have been a great addition to the school. Previous administrators were/are more about their public image than the kids' best interests. VMS utilizes a "village" system that I perceive as a plus. My kids are straight-A students, so maybe I am sheltered a bit, but it seems to enable better communications between my students and their teachers. Even between their teachers in coordinating homework loads and special events. I have had a lot of contact with support staff and most have been above and beyond pleasant. There is, sadly, still a great deal of students who believe they are more entitled than others. The "Do you know who I am?" question gets pulled out of some of these brats' rear ends when getting busted. It's OK, mommy and daddy will pay full pop to send them to the State University system to get a junk degree. The neighborhoods that feed this school vary from extreme ghetto to six-figure daddies and doltish trophy wives with air flowing out of their vacant cranial appendages, usually bragging about doltish endeavors.
