Valley Center Middle School Reviews
First off, I noticed it says this school is for grades 5-8. It is not. It is grades 6-8 and it is an awesome school. My daughter is in 6th grade, loves her teachers and the school. There are always going to be the teachers that stand out as the best and teachers that stand out as the worst no matter what school you are at, but overall I have been
extremely pleased with the way in which the teachers connect with the students and still challenge them academically without overwhelming them. That is very hard to do! Not only that, but they promote positive character traits, which even if it seems to fall on some deaf ears now, I believe will have an impact later. Love it!
