    What makes Valley View unique?

    At Valley View Elementary School, we are committed to developing the whole child - the creative, social and academic child. Our talented dedicated staff is highly trained to meet students' differentiated needs.

    We believe the best way to educate children is to have families, the community, and school staff working together. Through this partnership, we can have a positive impact on the success of our children. We nurture a strong and safe school community through the Responsive Classroom approach to elementary teaching that emphasizes social, emotional, and academic growth.

    We are proud to be Hylanders and know your students will be too!
