    "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)."

    "We have been a Valley View family for 5 years. I am currently so gravely concerned about the quality of education at Valley View that I am looking into taking my children elsewhere. Since the arrival of our new principle (2 years now) there has been a steady drop in academic achievement and parent participation. Additionally, there has been a sharp increase in bad behavior. So much so that I fear for the safety of some students and for the well being of the entire student body. Although Valley View remains one of the higher scoring (API) elementary schools in this district, I would keep my eyes open, see who the current principal is and ask what plans are being implemented to lessen the bullying and bad behavior at the school. Additionally i would check into the level of parent participation since this has historically been a key reason why Valley View has been so successful. Good Luck!"
