Not good at all. Disappointing. No communication. Teacher does not differentiate.

Amazing - all 3 of my Gals attended Valley View and we have been thrilled with the leadership, compassion, and teaching efforts of the entire faculty and staff. Thanks to all have enriched my children's lives

We recently moved to the Rockford area, and we really enjoy living here. I currently have two children who attend Valley View (K and 1st Grade), and so far, we are very pleased with this school. The teachers seem more caring and engaged than those at our previous school in another state. The principal is AMAZING. We really, really like him. He takes the time to get to know the parents and students. He makes everyone feel so welcome and takes education and bullying very seriously. He has written several books on leadership in education and encourages the students to exhibit the qualities of effective leaders. He is always visible and engaged with the teachers and students, and my children absolutely adore him. Additionally, the ladies who work in the office are wonderful. I volunteer at the school regularly, and they are always cheerful and helpful. While the facility itself is somewhat small and a little dated (it was built in the mid-1960's), the education thus far has been exceptional and has made up for what the building lacks. For example, both of my children were issued iPads this year and have really benefited from all of the educational apps. They have both had several fun field trips, and their reading abilities have improved tremendously. The district has made updates and improvements to the building in recent years, and as far as I'm aware, will continue to do so. One issue that I have with the school is that it is not equipped with AC, and the temperatures were unbearable at the beginning of the school year. My kids came home dripping in sweat for the first few weeks until the temperatures finally cooled down. Furthermore, this is the fastest growing elementary school in Rockford, so I am concerned with how this will affect the student to teacher ratio and overcrowding in the future. The facility is currently at capacity, so I don't know how they will accommodate an influx of new students if large housing developments continue to be built. I was told that rezoning may be necessary at some point. Otherwise, I think it's a fantastic school, and my children are thriving here.

Wow! My son is in Kindergarten at Valley View this year. I am also a teacher in the district, but I chose to put him in V.V. because it is our neighborhood school and I have heard so many good things about it and the teachers there. I am so glad we did. He loves his teacher and his classmates. He is learning so much, so quickly. He also adores the principal! Great job, Valley View!

There are some really good teachers at this school and there are some that are lazy and only working to get their summers off --- the principal included! I would never recommend this school. The principal refuses to acknowledge any bullying that goes on no matter how much bigger the bully is compared to your child. And if you have a gifted child, the only time they will be treated as one is when they are in the gifted program. Otherwise they will be bored beyond words. Between the bullying and the really poor teacher our daughter had, we moved her to a private school. In the end it was the best thing we could have done. She is now getting an excellent education at a school that teaches children there are consequences for their actions and poor choices. My advice: move to another elementary school district or just plan on sending your child to a private school if you want them to excel. At least until the current principal is gone, because it is very true that a group is only as strong as its leader, and this leader appears to just be counting his days until retirement.
