Student Testimonials:

"I like that at SOV all the teachers are nice and fun. They really teach you things and make all problems solved. I love that all the grades are connected and everyone is friends. I love that the school makes everything fun, and the teachers do really fun things. I love that the sixth graders have certain responsibilities in chapel and for the flags. It's cool that we get to have sugar babies and go whale watching. I also love that it's not just sixth grade that does fun stuff, but the whole school, including the teachers." - Grace, 6th Grade.

" I like Shepherd of the Valley because it is a very safe place, but I have other reasons, too. A second reason is that all of the staff is very helpful. There are great teachers, too. SOV has an amazing principal. She even ate lunch on the roof! The biggest reason that a child should come here is because we get to praise God every day and feel loved." - Bryan, 3rd Grade.
