    "I'm really please with how involved our second grader's teacher, Mrs. Johnston, is with everyone in school. We recently moved here and she was very warm in welcome us. I especially appreciate how she proactively communicates with us and involves us as our son adjusts to his new environment (we recently moved from SoCal)."

    "My daughter went to Valley View for 4 years. The leadership at the school was horrible. When problems arose, the principal was slow to resolve them. Other parents had the same complaint. unfortunately. The discipline in the school...awful. I cannot count the number of times my child came home complaining about the teachers inability to control the class. I always followed up with an observation- and was surprised at the number of disruptions to instruction. The office secretary has good days and bad days and you always knew when you walked in which one she was having. This is not the cream of the crop of the Pleasanton Schools. Enroll elsewhere."

    "OK, the EI program is great. Agreed. The school overall? It astounds me that no one seems to be aware that the schools performance is so low that it is designated as "Needs Improvement". The staff? I have observed impatience, raised voices and lack of respect towards students. Is it a big surprise I observe the students being disrespectful to subs and adults? The leadership always strikes me as disinterested, lethargic and in need of a nap. Many parents are unhappy with this school- the parents who have high standards and have been to good schools themselves through good fortune. Don't send your child here unless the DI program is suitable for your child. There are better schools in Ptown. This school is awful- we just hoped that it would get better and it never did. The best teacher- Mrs. Day left for greener pastures for good reason."

    "Valley View is a wonderfully unique school. There are Dual Immersion and English-only programs, and yet the school community is very cohesive. There a many events where the children have opportunities to learn from different cultures. There is a Multi-cultural Fair each year that is very well attended. The school facility is 50 years old and to celebrate this milestone, the school had a large charity event, and the school and community have upgraded the school with many new trees, flower beds, art walls throughout the school and a new area in front of the school with tables, umbrellas, benches, and information boards. The Principal, Mr. Cruz is extremely caring and approachable. I can't say enough positive things about him. Focus on the love of learning, honesty, respect and integrity, are modeled by an incredible group of educators. The standards are high, as well as the teacher's support in students achieving these standards. Parent/teacher interaction is at an extremely high level. Every person at VV, from the principal through the custodial staff are involved in the educational experience. My daughter started in 1st grade, is now in 4th grade we both love her school."
