Open Quote Valley is a very good School, test scores are not always the best indicator. Many of our Schools are struggling and Valley is no different. But they have quality people that care about students, and work very hard. The District has invested millions updating technology labs, computer labs, classroom smart-boards in every room. Valley is a quality school where students can receive a good education. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
