    While the school is academically sound and well prepares the children for middle school the change in administration over the past four years has not been positive. Although there are some wonderful teachers there is great tension within the administration (prinicpal) which is subsequently affecting the teachers creating turmoil amongst parents and is creating an overall negative environment for the children. I would suggest seeking an alternative elementary school within Hamburg which is a wonderful school district with the exception of Boston Valley.

    Boston Valley is a very family oriented friendly school. You always feel welcome when you are there. Their main focus are the students. The entire school works together like a well- oiled machine. I highly recommend this school.
