  • I was a student at Valley West Elementary. Please don't send your kids here. It's horrible. The Principal is nice though.
    But the kids arent, i am white and they made fun of me for two years. Their kids have no respect WHATSOEVER.
    Dont send your kids here unless you want your child ending up like a thug.
