Valley Oaks Elementary opened its doors in 1956.  Since that time, we have been educating students from the city of Spring Valley as well as some from the city of Houston.  We are fortunate to have an active and supportive community.

Our staff works extremely hard to meet the needs of our students from grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.  As you browse our webpage, you will have a better understanding of how our staff and community work together to create successful students.

The vision and mission reflect the importance we place on the commitment to excellence in teaching and preparing our students for the future.

Mission Statement:

Valley Oaks Elementary exists to prepare all student learners:

  • to become productive, self-motivated problem solvers
  • to contribute successfully to society
  • to have an awareness of opportunities beyond elementary school

Valley Oaks Vision:

Our highly skilled staff will ensure that all student learners will achieve yearly academic growth in order to become successful readers, writers, and problem solvers.

A school where everyone feels loved and accepted.
