    "We were very excited for our child to start school! We did read the negative comments about Indian Valley Elementary, their staff and discipline protocols, but we still were hopeful it would be a good experience for our family. We were WRONG! The reason why there is so much parent involvement is because you need to be there to "fight" for your child to be noticed and treated fairly. I do not know of any other education model that teaches children to stay in their "personal bubbles" and not have physical contact with their classmates. Consequences and trips to the Principal's office are they way issues are dealt with. The current Principal is NOT a very patient or warm person. A school is benefited or harmed by the type of leader it has and this leader and lacking. So unless your child is a robot, this is not a nurturing environment."

    "IV is one of the great schools in Walnut Creek School District. Teachers are really really great and Principal is also very good. My daughter has been going to this school and she likes it. Good mix of students, good academics focus as well as options to enroll into various arts, drama and science classes."

    "My children previously attended a public school in another State that was struggling on all levels. When we arrived at IV we were hopeful but nervous. The office manager was genuinely warm and welcoming and very informative. She knew all of our names the next time she saw us and has continued to be helpful and reliable all year. We got fabulous teachers for first and fourth grade. I could probably write two books about how great our experiences have been with both teachers. The right degree of challenging and nurturing for each age. The teachers are truly committed to teaching the whole child and use positive reinforcement over negative consequences for behavior issues that come up with some of the kids. The kids here are still kids. Not always kind or welcoming but teachers and parents work effectively at resolving situations that come up and most of the kids are very sweet and considerate. The PTO seems to be very organized and dedicated to raising funds for the school and offering fun events for the kids and their families. I wish my kids could have been here from the start of kindergarten. I love Indian Valley."

    "Terrible, the teachers have no patience to deal with the kids, unless your kids are 100% obedient, don't send them there, all they do is directly send the kids to principle office no matter how tiny the fault is. Unhappy staff(including the principle), I hardly see their smiles, oh, yes, the sun probably rise in the west if you see they smile, my two kids had very unhappy experiences there. Finally we transferred to another school, I have to say this is the best decision I ever made, now they are so happy, everyday, I can't wait to drop them off and can't wait to see their happy smiles."

    "First up, our children love this school!! They return home every school day with a joy and love of learning. Indian Valley Elementary is in my view, a very special school. Having lived elsewhere and experienced what was sadly a poorly run school and moved to an area where schools were rated the best I can say based on real comparative experiences, this school offers something that we didn t find elsewhere qualified, caring teachers and staff tirelessly devoted to providing a well rounded and exceptional educational opportunity in a safe, loving and positive environment. From the Principal to the teachers and parent volunteers, the positive commitment and sense of community this school provides is a treasure to our family and we feel fortunate to be a part of it. In short, the education children are receiving here is evidenced in the school report card and is credited to the excellent teachers, a devoted and character building staff and Principal, along with a team of involved parents and bright-eyed enthusiastic children -- the community and school collaboration here is wonderful."
