I have gone to Oak Valley since kindergerten, and I have been there six years. This is my last year here and I would recommend this marvelous school to anybody who is looking to transfer. This school is a complete bully free zone and is the best school for the youngsters. They have the most amazing facilities and learning material. I guarantee that by the end of the year, whatever the grade, your child will be at average or higher. The school is a complete package deal, academics, facilities, music, art, sports, level of parent involvement, other extracurricular activities, and academic and athletic awards during all assemblies. Your child will have a great school day, and all the teachers have great patience and interesting qualities. I would nominate (if your looking to transfer) Oak Valley as an amazing secure school, that your children will be completely safe, respectful, and responsible in.
