We understand that all parents are not available to meet during the set aside times that the county provides and we hope you will feel free to email, call, or send a note requesting a conference time. Teachers are available before and after school. Teachers will make every effort to accomodate your schedule. Please do not call during the school day to speak to the teacher but leave a message and the teacher will arrange to call you back after school. Emails are a great way to communicate with the teacher .

The History of Valley View Elementary School

Valley View Elementary School is one of eleven elementary schools in the Bradley County School System.  It is located on Spring Place Road in the southeastern part of the county.

Valley View was the name suggested by Jim McKenzie, who surveyed the site for the new school.  It's doors opened in 1952 with the community schools of Number Four, Zion Hill, Union Grove, and Liberty consolidating into Valley View.  This was the first Bradley County School to consolidate.  The original school had six classrooms, a cafeteria, and an auditorium.  S. L. Beaty was the superintendent of Bradley County Schools when Valley View was built.  John W. McNabb was the first principal.

Growth in the school population required four additional classrooms, which were added to the school building in 1955.  Then, in 1960, Wooten School consolidated with Valley View.  Kindergarten classes began at Valley View in 1971.  Two portable classrooms were moved to the campus in 1972 to help with overcrowded conditions and still remain with us.  A gym was made part of the school in the early 1970's as well.

With the completion of Trewhitt Junior High School in 1976, Valley View's seventh and eighth graders moved to that new campus.  However, overcrowded conditions were still a problem for Valley View in the following years.  Therefore, a new four-classroom pod was built in 1989.  In addition, two more portable classrooms were temporarily moved onto the campus in 1994.  In the summer of 1995, our sixth graders were moved to Trewhitt Elementary School to relieve the overcrowded conditions at Valley View.  In the 1997-98 school year, four classrooms and a teacher workroom were added.
