Award winning educational assessment technology, strong emphasis on math and language arts, teachers who are balanced and trustworthy and an admistrtion that is always striving for excellence. We see our children respecting their teachers and never wanting to leave school... Great friendships! I would recommend checking out their You Tube videos... Preschool, safety, fun, graduations and messages from the administrator - all help me connect with my child's life. You can afford their tuition if you are willing to show that you have financial need. Best school for balanced Christian education. Best event -the school play. Most promising program - sports school for Elite Basketball players. We are proud to be part of the school!

The teachers, staff, and even the parents of students from West Valley Christian School-Elementary have made a profoundly positive and lasting impact on my family. Last year my son was in the hospital battling a rare circumstance and all throughout that painful process my family received constant support, encouragement, and prayer from WVCS staff, and even many of the parents, who unexpectedly volunteered to cook meals for my family to help lessen our stress load during that trying time. WVCS stood with my family as an emotional and spiritual rock until our toddler was finally released from the hospital and brought back home. My son's recovery was a miracle and the love and support from WVCS was equally astounding and healing. We are truly blessed to be a part of the WVCS elementary family!

Wow! I have never seen a school's newsletter that showcases their school with videos, pictures and narrative text. As a parent I can not only read excellent articles from the admininstration but we can hear about the faculty, student and parent's perspectives. West Valley Chrisitian School's FACEBOOK is loaded with videos and pictures. But the best source to capture all the excitment is their weekly newsletter. If you want a balanced Christitian education where the faculty really care about reaching the heart of the student, without a harsh legalistic tone, come check out this school. The preschool is warm and nurturing, the elementary school is strong academically and the middle school has friendly happy spirit... a place where kids can flourish to be what God designed them to be. We are so grateful for a place that totally supports what we believe in our home. I hope our kids turn out to be like their teachers! My highest compliment!

My son started attending the pre-school in January and he loves it. All the teachers are great, loving and encouraging. I love that my son is learning Bible verses and songs. Mrs. Kelly is absolutely the best! She helped us get acclimated to the school and offered such good advice.

I have had my children at West Valley Christian School since age 2 1/2. The preschool was AMAZING. The teachers and assistants were the most loving nurturing people. My kids came home singing a new song every day! The Elementary school is just as loving and wonderful. The Principal is friendly, inspiring and amazing in his motivation to provide a cutting edge school, while maintaining that small, intimate feel. I HIGHLY recommend this school!

We Love WVCS... Our Son is going on his third year. He is currently in the Pre-K program. The teachers and the staff are so loving and caring. WVCS is more than just a school its a family. The children are academically challenged already learning how to spell in pre-k. Most important our son is learning about our Lord. They offer Extracurricular activities even for the preschool. Our little guy loves his soccer class. Its nice to see all the parents involved as well. The school is great about keeping the parents informed. When we moved to this area 3 years ago I prayed to find a good school for our son and we couldnt be more blessed. If you are looking for a loving and caring environment for your child to learn in then WVCS is the school. WE LOVE WVCS!!!!

I attended West Valley Christian School and with the awesome staff I excelled when I reached College. I am so glad to be an alumni because what the school invested in me deserves 100% of the credit in my success in the next stage of my life. This school is a great investment for the future not only for the academics but the foundation in Christ that teaches kids valuable life lessons that even I still use daily.
