My daughter has been at this school for seven years. We have always been thrilled with the environment teachers and her progress. However I do agree that the past couple of years it has greatly declined. While the teachers are still outstanding and do an amazing job it is hard for even them to perform well under leadership that is far from up to par. The parent community and sadly teacher moral is at an all time low. It breaks my heart to see such wonderful teachers who rather than getting the support they need get put down and made to feel like they are nothing. I can't imagine how hard it is for them to give their all knowing that their leader cares not about doing what's right or what will better the students but only about making herself look good. I pray that the county wakes up and realizes this before Valle Crucis loses some of the best teachers in the state. It is impossible to be a great leader by ignoring true issues and only looking out for number one!!

The academics at Valle Crucis are clearly not up to par compared to other schools in the same district and nationally. My child is not challenged and students seem to be singled out if they do not fit a certain criteria set forth by leadership within the school itself. There is a problem with bullying as we experienced this personally and protocol was not followed by the school in handling the situation. I would greatly advise anyone to do your research and exhaust all other options before putting your babies in such an environment as this.
This school was a very good school. In 2010 the school started going down hill and is continuing to do so. I would seriously consider all my options before placing a child here.
This School has went down in the last couple of years. I hope the county recognizes how much this gem could shine and allow it to regain its former glory. Some of the best teachers just has leadership issues.
I think Valle Crucis is an awesome school! It has the best teachers in the world especially Mrs. Glover and Mrs. Wilcox. they make learning fun and both my children loved having them!!! It really upsets me when I see negative posts on here. Obviously the students didn't have these two teachers!
My daughter has excelled at this school. There are very small classes and the teachers are very involved. I couldn't be happier with the education she has gotten at VC.
Great school! Mr. Eberle rocks the best principal yet. Teachers are very supportive and excellent at doing their jobs particular to each student's capabilities. I've been to four schools in eight years but none beats VC. Go Cougars!!!
I think this school exspects to much out of 3rd graders. Way to much homework . I think if you have money your child is treated so much better. Or if that chilsd isn't smart as he should be he is not treated right.
