    Please note that Kevin Kuhn retired as principal in 2009. You need to update this web site.

    I had a horrible experience with the school my daughter was jus there for 6 months but its just a nightmare for us.. The teacher which my daughter had is not effective very poor communication with the parents very unorganized less involved with the student kids with bad behavior (racism) teacher is unable to control.. I requested for a change of teacher but no body cared. I strongly don't recommend the school for anyone.

    My daughter started attending CV from 2006-2011 and graduated from the school. We came from South Park(SP). She stated SP was further advanced than CV. She also complained that 3 weeks prior to PSSA testing that the students prepare solely for the test! They do not complete regular work because they want the children to get GOOD grades for the state! My middle child did so poorly I removed him from the district and my younger one is being removed this year. Disappointed in all grades.

    (Let's see if I can squeeze all the many elements of EXCELLENCE in this block here..) First there are caring nurturing compassionate fun GREAT teachers who provide our children with theeeeeeeeeeee best start in their learning. Ask any parent of any student and they've got tons of great memories past and present of the staff the events the school as a complete whole. Gems of great wonderful teachers principals and more..(let me name a few.. Mr. Kevin Kuhn Mrs. Melva Devin Judy Lynne Debbie Dr. Mariellen Mrs. Lucatorto Mrs. Connelly Mrs. Pacillio..< talk about an energetic great music teacher.. watch her in a concert how she shows she truly loves what she does.. ) Mrs. Orilo Nurse Ann Senora Cottam Lou.. oh.. so many more great people who love our children love their 'calling' not job.. CVPS is doing it better than best! I feel like they are extended kind family.

    I love this school! They truly care about the kids and are very supportive of the children and families. They also do a good job with 'special needs' children. A 10+!
