Terrible experience. There’s no transparency about who gets in to the Spanish Immersion . You only get an email whether or not your child gets in. Also, administrator, front office, and some teachers are rude. There’s no sense of equality either. There’s a need to support ALL students!!!
We have been impressed with the level of dedication of many of the teachers as well as the amount of parent involvement at this school.Our children have been fortunate to attend Valley and become fluent in more than one language.
This is a wonderful school to send your children to. The teachers and staff really care about the students and their families. My two daughters are in their impressive dual language program. Neither my husband or I are Spanish speakers, but our daughters are able to hold conversations with Spanish speakers. I love the way PUSD teaches all school subjects. These people know what they are doing! I am so thankful for this school!
My kids attended Kinder and Preschool at other Poway USD schools (Painted Rock and Chaparral Elementary, which are closer to our homes) before we discovered the dual-language Spanish immersion program at Valley and transferred them (just in time, our oldest began in first grade speaking no Spanish and within just a few months was gaining fluency, by the time we took a vacation to Spain the following summer he was fully fluent and translating for us!) This is an amazing school -- from the Principal, who is truly committed and has his own child attending the school, to the teachers, families, parents and of course the kids. The commitment from the faculty, PTA and Foundation to put in the hard work and learn technology, common core, and other best practices, demonstrates their willingness to go the extra mile to improve their own skills and best teaching practices. This is a low-income, Title One school-- meaning 50% of the children are on the free lunch program. You definitely see and experience poverty at this school, which actually keeps all of the children, teachers (and hopefully the parents) grounded on what is truly important for a child's and community's education.
