    Some of Water Valley's teacher's act like it's a hassle to teach when thats what their there to do! The advanced students do not get challenged or pushed further. And the principal did not do well on documenting certain things that should have been documented that were complaints a suggestions from the parents! Water Valley also never has soap in the bathrooms and there is always something wrong with the toilets. Also the cafeteria food is not very healthy and they wonder why there are so many obese kids hot dogs and hamburgers shouldn't be in the food menu. We should have more fruit and less un healthy chiken nuggets!
