    "This year we have chosen to send our daughter to a private school rather than Valley View where she has attended since 2009. The primary reason for this is that the test scores for Valley View are atrocious and getting worse. There are intellectually disabled students in other public schools that have higher test scores than Valley View's overall scores. We have continued to hope for improvement, but don't want our child to continue to fall further behind academically. There is a new principal this year which will hopefully help, but it will take much more than one staffing change to make the kinds of changes needed in a school that clearly lacks the desire to set high academic standards."

    "To compare our school to another school outside of California is unfair if not hurtful. Valley View has dedicated teachers and a new principal that brings new life into Valley View. This school has been through some rough times in the past 3 years but between teacher and a supportive community this is the best nieghborhood school. Schools could always use a little improvement and nothing in this world is perfect. I'm dedicated to this school and I am very glad to be a part of this community."

    "Valley View is a great elementary school with a diverse student body and an active parents' club. The teaching staff is superb, working effectively with the parents and administration to create a supportive learning environment for the students. As with all West Contra Costa County schools, Valley View struggles to make up for school budget cuts, but the parents' club supplements many programs, such as music."

    "Unfortunately, this school seems to have suffered from the repercussions of poor decisions by the WCCUSD board. We were very disappointed in the terrible administration, the lack of support, the misinformation given, etc. Our child was assigned to a very good and caring teacher, one of several who had to change grade levels last year (after almost being laid off). Our child was in a class of 28 children, with 22 boys. We ended up becoming yet another family who opted to transfer out to a fantastic private school in the area. We were sad to have to take this step, as we enjoyed supporting our own community. Many parents tried to help, but resources were very limited. We both volunteered weekly in our child's class. I would recommend parents look at all their options before enrolling at Valley View. Unfortunately, it is rather difficult to get a transfer to another school, as this school is relatively "highly rated," at least for the time being (we've noticed the rating already slip from 7 to 6). NCLB prioritizes transfer requests from students assigned to "failing schools" in the district."

    "We have been very happy at Valley View - we've been there 3 years. The teachers are what sets Valley View apart from other schools - we have fabulous, committed and caring teachers. The last principal had his strengths, though some didn't find him strong enough on discipline. The best thing he did for Valley View was to get rid of the few bad teachers that no previous principal would do. Amazing! We should be rocking this year! We are supposed to start a fabulous music program this fall. There are a core group of parents very involved at Valley View - it would be great to see an increase in involvement. But, otherwise, we have been very happy here and look forward to many more years of quality education (younger child to attend also)."
