    "Valley View Middle School in Simi Valley is in need of new leadership. The Homework load is overwhelming and unreasonable. Average time taking four hours and on certain occasions up to 9 hours. I have two children , both were GATE now Honors, both reading at a 12.9 grade level and they are avid readers. My son has graduated from Valley View and is doing quite well at Santa Susana High School in Simi Valley. My daughter is in the seventh grade and is a devoted student. It is impossible for her to complete her english stems. poetry and RHO packets. Plus there are Art requirements in English!! Why?? My son says he couldn't complete them either when he was there. While there are a few really good teachers there, most are below average or are incompetent. Bullying, the schools bullying program is laughable. Both of my intelligent students hate the school. Your children will as well. Poll the student body and you will find this is an accurate appraisal. Mr. Greminger, Mr. McCarter, Mrs. Abdallah, Mr. Dingman, Mrs. Stilson and Mr. Schuster are exceptional educators and save Valley View from being a total failure. Your experience may be different, but don't bet on it."

    "If I could give a half star I would, based only on they are a building you can send a middle schooler to. When we moved here from out of state I would think teachers and admin would actually make sure my child is adapting. Not even close! He was forgotten within a day, his grades quickly fell and nobody would call me back. I was asking for online access to his grades for over a month, nobody there returns calls or emails!!!! When I did receive it and my child had went from an A to D student in his first 2 months based on 12 missing assignments (all graded in his folder btw). I was furious!!! And the teachers responded "it's the child's responsibility, really??? To make sure he is given credit for graded assignments. The teachers just don't care, when asked a question my child has been snapped at more in the few months here, than in his entire education! Now today they have a jog a thon. If you choose to not raise money you have to run on a longer track and no water! Seriously! Tried at least 10 times to talk to the principal they always bump me elsewhere, never even seen the woman! Take your kids ANYWHERE else, homeschool before you go here!"

    "I'm finding the same issue as the 9-24-13 post- I, too, know my child's short comings and I have always had an open line of communication with teachers to work together, however, I've attempted to contact two of my child's teachers and I get absolutely nothing. I firmly recall every teacher during Back to School night saying "email me, I'll get right back to you". Hmm, maybe if your child is close to perfect do you get a reply. I am trying let my child "fight" his own battles and take responsibility for a lot more communication, but let's face it- he's 12 and this is definitely not yet a strength, however, it is unsettling that some of these teachers will just sit back and watch a child fail, especially in a core subject. It's discouraging as a parent to reach out to the school only to be basically reprimanded and dismissed. Is it a VVMS issue, a poorly funded CA public school issue or a national issue? I don't know but as a parent, I find it to be a pretty personal issue."

    "Valley View is an outstanding school!!! I'm a 7th grade GATE student and I just love this school!! Mr. Derek Greminger is my favorite teacher! He teaches life science and he interacts very well with me and my classmates! You couldn't have a better teacher! Mrs. Webb is just an AMAZING principal... Sure she's a little strict but that's because she loves her students and wants the best for us!! I recommend this school 100%!!"

    "I attended this school starting in the 6th grade. I was bullied. Several times I brought it up to my councilors only to have them ignore the problem. I was beaten up twice and i recieved the all the punishment. In eighth grade, my friend came to school crying and I gave him a hug before school started. I was given an hour detention and my friend was given a lecture about "wasting his time with girls". The academics were a nightmare for me. I have never been good at math and every year my plea for a tutor was ignored. The dress code is harshly enforced as well. I wore two and a half inch heels and sat in the office for two hours being lectured. Once, when my shirt was "low cut" a teacher said she would either send me to the office or shove tissue paper down my shirt. The only silver lining I found in this school was the drama program. David Dingman is one of the most incredible, talented, and commited teachers you will find in this town. The drama program saved my life and taught me many valuable lessons on several occasions. I do not reccomend this school to anyone, but if you are a performer trapped in Simi Valley, then this is the middle school for you."
