Valley Cottage Elementary has truly become an extended family of ours. I've had 3 children move through the grades, each one very different with different needs. They all flourished. We haven't had a single teacher that hasn't gone above and beyond. Whether it be challenging my very advanced child with enrichment pull outs, or helping and nurturing my struggling child. Other neighboring school systems may look better on paper due to the affluent families that reside there--but nothing compares to the family spirit of Valley Cottage. Nothing compares to the extreme involvement of every single teacher there. Thank you VCE for having a huge part in influencing the eager learners my children have become. The robotics program funded by Inspire Nyack has been a great start to the strong STEM program at the High School. The lessons learned here will transfer to their adulthood. Could not have been any happier.
