    "The school is centered around nepotism. If your not a teacher or a who knows who, your child is left to fall between the cracks. The administration refers to this as "professional courtesies". Straight A students are being left in the lower performing classes, not advancing because the professional courtesies get to advance regardless of GPA. They foster a who knows who attitude, from the beginning, evident at any school function with their special "reserved" sections. There's no diversity or straying from the PSSA format in their education. They spend nine months prepping for PSSAs. They have cut the science program to a class lumped in with library and gym and eliminated Social Studies. The PTA has gone bankrupt after being mismanaged, again nepatism no to mention the "professional courtesys" that acquired the cafeteria contract, bussing contracts and lack of supervision for the drivers. I'm quite certain no one forgets the multipul DUIs received while driving school children. Mid -Valley needs to restructure with non bias staff/ administration and redirect their focus on equal well rounded education."

    "Mvsd has been excellent for my 2 grand kids they are still the same courteaous caring kids and eager to do good. The teachers are great the classes are just perfect and not overcrowded and there is no bulling allowed. Lots of help for all kids. My grandkids on days of my work were bussed to the community center and had help to do homework first then play and a drink and snack we were so grateful and they were supervised and safe. My family got their own place now but i give this school a thumbs up for sure and they have wonderful school spirit. Ann"

    "I personally think that Mid Valley Elem. needs to focus alittle more on bulling. There are so many kids bullied and no one does anything. My son has been bullied by the same boy all year and nothing has been done. Other then that i think the school is alright!"
