13 Parent Reviews for Valley View Elementary School

I disagree with the past statements. The school has made progress however there is a high percentage of students who are English language learners and special education. They have the highest percentage in all mchenry schools. I have had concerns with my daughter and she has received a lot of support ...  Read more

Horribly outdated curriculum, very unorganized, a handful of quality teachers with a pair of principals that lack the leadership and knowledge needed to turn the school in the right direction. Worst school in Illinois? No. Worst school in McHenry? Definitely. Send your kids to Landmark if you can!

I think the homework needs to be cut back somewhat. I understand the concept of homework but my son doesnt get home until 4:15 and then he has to eat dinner and has tons of homework. After being at school all day and then coming home and having to do all that homework he is so worn out and has no down ...  Read more

Although my child had a great interaction with her teachers at this school, the overall satisfaction is very poor. There seems to be a lack of communication with the parents. The Secretaries in the office seem to know more than the Principal and Assistant Principal. They seem to turn down parent ...  Read more

The school is very unorganized. We recieved letters that our school did not meet the AYP proficiency minimum for all students. They will be on academic probation. They have failed for two years in a row (with new principal and vice principal) while they implemented a STAR program for good behavior. ...  Read more

We are very disappointed with this school. It is overcrowded, unorganized, and poorly run. The principals are a joke. When we can we will be moving to another school in the district.

We were new to this school this year and so far it has seemed very disorganized. We have moved several times and the principle or vice principle in the past have always greeted us or better yet, shown us around. I know they are busy, but a hello and welcome would have been nice. The activities so ...  Read more

I am sad to say that since the new administration took over last year, the school has gone downhill quickly. From what it was before with the old principal, It now seems very disorganized to me as a parent. Whenever I come in to talk to or call the principal and vice principal they are never available. ...  Read more

When my daughter entered Kindergarten reading at a second grade level and bored by the daily Kindergarten activities, the staff listened to our concerns as parents. My daughter was tested and accelerated to the next grade. The staff is genuinely concerned about each child and wants every student to ...  Read more
