    Cedar Valley has great teachers staff and principal. They work at every level to meet the needs of each individual child. There is also a lot of community involvement and support from organizations such as Covington Kiwanis Covington Rotary Mt. Vineyard Church and Costco. The school has a grant for after school assistance every day all school year long and summer school is also an available option. The school also serves as a site for free summer lunches for kids. The PTA provides an after school art club and an excellent and fun reading incentive program. If you are considering Cedar Valley go for it!

    I really enjoyed having my children attend this school. They are very good at safety and security when it comes to the children. visitors must sign in at the office to receive a visitor badge. Volunteers for field trips and classroom help have had background checks performed. I always felt comfortable knowing these security measures were in place. This past year my 2nd grade son had the opportunity to be involved in a new program Cedar Valley started. We were given the chose to have his 1st grade teacher continue teaching him in second grade in what is called looping up. I believe it was an excellent opportunity for my child. He benefited from it by knowing this teacher and her expectations as well as keeping many of the same classmates. I think his transition to 2nd grade was much easier and his learning abilities excelled because of this!
