  • Where to start about Valley. I went there for 9 years. K-8. I must admit, I miss it at times, BUT I'm glad I'm out. The principal is ok sometimes, but he is very strict. The school is also over crowded, but so is the rest of the hazleton area school district. I just got out this past year, and since I've left, it just keeps getting worse. I apologize if I offend, but it's the truth.

  • THE WORST, NOTHING BUT BAD MEMORIES AND BAD TEACHERS. YOU'D PROBABLY BE BETTER OFF HOMESCHOOLING YOUR KIDS THEN TAKING THEM TO THAT PLACE. DARE YA GO, PA!
