    Valley View is an amazing school! My child went to school there for 6 years. I disagree with the previous comment. They do have a playground and the gym/bathroom area had problems during basketball season which is the responsibility of the rec. department not the school. The teachers and principal are very caring!!!

    I have noticed a rapid decline at VV over the past 3 years. It's nothing like it was when my eldest first attended. The area is poor the children are unruly and therefore it's not the best crowd of children and parents. Almost 80% of this school receive a free/reduced lunch. They have a great music program but I didn't see anything special happen this year. The gym is in horrible condition and the toilets are always clogged/overflowing. They have no playground except for the pre-k area and the baseball field is a disgrace. They should really bulldoze this building and start new. I'm seriously thinking of pulling my kid out and commuting her to another school.

    This is a great academic place for kids to attend. It has been a place that all my grandchilren have and are attending and dates back to when my cousins attended it as well. They have excellent teachers and staff that work with parents in maintaining high levels of interests that make it fun for the children to learn. The children are also taught to respect other peers. Just a great school all around.

    Me and my husband just love this school! The teachers are great. Mrs McSpaden is the best first grade teacher out there. She is great with the kids. And Mrs. Cameron is wonderful with the kindergardeners. she has so much patients with the kids. And Ms. Pierce is her helper and she loves and really cares about the kids. The princepal Mrs Ledford keeps us well informed with what is going on in and around the school. My daughter had a rough couple of days last year due to a bad dream and she got upset over it while she was at school and Mrs. Ledford took her under her wings and helped her out. She is one of a kind.
