Our School

Valleydale provides a quality educational program to over 300 students.  Our site also offers  a visually impared program for students pre-school to 5th grade.  Valleydale offers a wonderful Preschool, Transitional Kinder program, Kindergarten through fifth grade and an afterschool program called Think Together located on campus. This year we are proud to introduce a dedicated room for science experiments and music.

Our students are our focus, and we work diligently to provide them with a positive school experience.

Our teachers have undergone many hours of staff development to bring research based instructional strategies into the classroom.  Teachers collaborate weekly in our Professional Learning Communities model. This model focuses on effective instructional strategies and data that informs instruction. The PLC teams collaborate weekly on Thursday, when students are on an early release schedule.

Valleydale’s students learn through active engagement, cooperative learning strategies, critical thinking and problem solving.  Character education is emphasized through our focus on monthly character traits.  Students enjoy  demonstrating  excellence and responsibility for the traits that are highlighted throughout  the month.

 All students and parents have access to a fully equipped computer lab and library with over 10,000 published titles.  Our parent community is active in their fundraising efforts and in providing activities that encourage positive community involvement. 

Parents and community members are encouraged to become involved at school through opportunities to volunteer in classrooms, take part in, ELAC and/or SSC, parent computer classes, family nights, school events  and various student recognition assemblies.  Valleydale is an awesome school community, we welcome you!
