    My children and I love Green Valley. The school has a friendly atmosphere and parents are encouraged to join the Home School Association and/or become Watchdog Dads. We think it is great that the school involves parents especially fathers so much. My kids have had wonderful and loving teachers in grades K-2. I have seen the quality of the teaching and the caring nature of the faculty firsthand. My kids love going to school every day and have learned a tremendous amount. I am often amazed by the things my kids share at the dinner table! They are able to discuss things in a way that their older cousins who attend school in another local district cannot. I am pleased that my children are happy thriving and excited to learn. We cannot wait for school to start in August!

    We moved so our daughter could go to this school. We couldn't be happier. The two teachers she has had so far are awesome. She is so far advanced in reading and math than her cousins that are the same age or a year older. My daughter loves going to school here and would go on the weekends if she could.

    I am very impressed with this school. My daughter started kindergarten this year she is reading and knows the value of coins. The principal is always around and involved. My daughter speaks of how she filled someones bucket everyday. Im pleased with her learning achievements at Green Valley. Also the school won a $10 000 Environmental Education Award. Being green is important and something the school takes very seriously. Good job!
