Went to enroll my son to this school... you get tru main door big sign that reads this school is over crowded.! Next their staff look and IS so unprofessional. They are rude. And it seems they dont get along with each other there.The tons of homework! Literally my boy spends 3+ hrs at home doing homework after school every day of the week. I work late and come to sit and help my boys teacher do her job. Then he says that Mrs. .. shouldn't be a teacher because she doesn't enjoy her job. She gets strees/upset easily and yells at the kids a lot. And even told them to SHUT UP! As soon I can I will move him to a different school.

The has some problems just like other schools but the instruction from teachers like Mr. Whitesel makes a huge difference. I give the school 2 stars and Mr. Whitesel 4 stars!!! Makes that an average overall score of 3.
My son used to attend this school and I have to move him to another school because we felt that the teacher failed her duties. We have no regret of paying tuition to now compare to our child being sent to office all the time for not doing his work. He did not do his work because the teacher is not willing to spend time knowing our son's ability. Our son is doing well in his new school.
Awesome school!!!! All 3 of my children have gone there at some point in time since they opened. The staff is wonderful )
This is my childrens first year at Great Valley and they love it. They're glad we moved to this district
My daughter attends and unfortunately I feel like she is now far behind academically! This is sad as she was a star student well focused and leaning soo much each day In this school the children's minds are left 'idle' till they eventually loose interest. They focus on test for funding but not future college and high school preparedness. We struggle to hang on to her potential and hopes of a true education. Great Valley needs to step it up!
My daughter has attended this school for two years and both times she has had wonderful teachers that have kept me informed of her progress and have worked with her to improve her grades. The school is a little too focused on the state test but overall I have had a great experience. Her fourth grade teacher Mrs. Anderson is the best!!!
The classrooms are over crowded
They need more science and hands-on work.. The school is teaching the test so that they are not penalized and lose money.
The junior high has improved since last year - my son is getting a better education.
Our two children went to Great Valley since it opened approx. 3 years. Although we were not a fan of the year-round track based system due to overcrowding we were impressed at the enthusiasm and integrity of the teachers. Our children were challenged and taught very well at every level. The teachers were all fantastic and interested in ensuring a high-level of education for the kids. We had a few situations with the principals' attitude of being disinterested or unwilling to help us resolve any issues that could have a political backlash or require a modest amount of personal effort.
Great Valley is trying too hard to be the perfect school and are losing the children in the process.
This school needs more P.E time music sports and other fun activity to keep our kids out of troble. The acadimic life is awful. The math and english are both behind a lot of different schools. If this continues our kids are going to get ate up out there in the real world.I participate in everything my child does.
It's a good school children there have after school programs and activities for youth that is hard to find.
