Testimonials

  • In the past three years I have grown and guided, innovated and analyzed, while in a loving and supportive professional community. My knowledge of pedagogy and child development has soared due to Blue Valley’s successful approach in giving teachers confidence, support, and independence.

  • It has been a pleasure working at Blue Valley School during the last three years. I have learned so much here that I will take with me in my next position. From guidance and support from my colleagues, to the growth resulting from professional development sessions, I have absorbed knowledge and techniques that have made me a better educator.

  • It has been a pleasure working with you and your team over the last four and a half years. I have become the educator I am today because of my time at Blue Valley School. I have been challenged and held to high expectations, yet given endless support and guidance in reaching my professional goals.

  • Al salir yo de Blue Valley, mi hija continuó creciendo al lado de ustedes, de grandes maestros, maestras y profesores quienes con gran cariño y profesionalismo la ayudaron a crear la joven mujer que se graduó de bachillerato y de IB hace dos años. La preparación que recibió en BVS fue fundamental para su aceptación en diferentes universidades en Estados Unidos, el otorgamiento de becas y su ingreso a una de ellas.
    Classroom Teacher / Parent 1992-2002
  • The Freedom students have to handle themselves appropriately, whether it be in class or during their free time, is a valuable life skill. This is the first school I have seen that puts such a strong emphasis on fostering this skill. I have had several doubts about the idea of teaching in the States in the future because I strongly disagree with the way education is going in the States. I think Blue Valley has made me a much stronger teacher than I ever imagined being in my third year of teaching. I have the administration, and all my coworkers to thank for that! I feel extremely honored to be a part of this staff.
