    "YVCS is an academically rigorous school, filled with loving teachers who care as much about a child's emotional, social, and spiritual development as they do about their academic progress. The teachers are exceptionally committed and have created a home-away-from-home for each of the kids. They bring scripture and biblical principals into the classroom and playground. Small class sizes allow incredible amounts of personalized attention and ensure that each student succeeds. I can't recommend this school highly enough!"

    "Y.V.E is an awesome school! My oldest daughter attended there and has finished all the way. I never had any complaints . When MS.RICHARDSON was there. Intill ms.kissinger attended there. Well now for the first time i have a complaint, today my son got these two PLASTIC MEDALS they looked like if they were bought in the 99 cent store they didnt have no student name or date on it ,for scoring good in math and lanuage arts. While on the other hand when my daughter attended when MS.RICHARDSON was still there , they got real real medals ones with a name and date on them. It just feels like joke to me that the new princapal doesnt even care for the childeren hard work! I think she should know the difference about elementary school and the milatary base!!!! Thank you parents for your support and i hope we fix this to make a better school for our children!!"

    "This elementary school has always been great. My oldest daughter attended YVE and finished. I have another child that currently attends. Never had complaints until now. The new principal, Mrs. Kissinger (I believe that's her name) is more like the Wicked Witch than a principal (We miss Ms. Richardson!). I seriously think that she needs to learn the difference between school and jail. I have observed the way she communicates with the children and her delivery was surprising (Mind you, I had no idea she was the new principal until my child told me). I thought she was rude and mean to the students and a lot of parents can agree with me with her ridiculous new school rules. YVE is not a Jail. My child is in fear of her! A child should not have to feel uncomfortable towards a principal. A child should look up to their principal not be fearful."

    "Ygnacio Valley Elementary is an awesome school. My daughter attended there from Kind. thru Fifth grade. She just graduated from 5th grade in June. All of her teachers were great. They all cared about their students. Ms. Richardson, who was the Principal the whole 6 years knew the ins and outs of her school and all of the students and parents loved her. The office staff were also a winning team. We will miss YVE so much. This school makes learning fun for all the kids."

    "My child attends the Cornerstone Family School program at YVE. It's a really neat program, and I think my child is getting a great education. The teachers are wonderful - very caring and skilled at teaching. Because the Cornerstone program requires parent participation, there is a lot of help in the classroom. Additionally, the class sizes are small (20 max), which is a gift at a public school! We go on regular field trips, and have weekly 'enrichment' programs (art, cooking, etc.), put on by parents. Cornerstone is like a family - we regularly have events outside of school hours (potlucks, talent shows and the like). They're low-key and fun for the kids. YVE as a whole has "a good vibe"; it's a happy place to be. The teachers all rave about the principal, and it's evident that morale is good. We're very happy to be at Cornerstone Family School and Ygnacio Valley Elementary!"
