School Overview

South Valley Elementary School

Our SchoolSouth Valley is a K- 3 school in Moorestown, New Jersey, located about 15 minutes east of Philadelphia. In 1988-1989 as the first United States Department of Education Blue Ribbon School in Moorestown for our exemplary math program, we continue our tradition of excellence. Maximum class size is 25 for children in First through Third grades, 22 for Kindergarten.

Our School Community: Parental involvement at South Valley is very high. Parents serve on over twenty committees, including the School-based Planning Committee. Over 100 Home and School volunteers help in the classrooms, Media Center, and computer lab.

Our Elementary Emphasis: We believe it is our responsibility to foster a caring learning community which promotes a love of learning by focusing on the emotional, moral, social, physical and intellectual growth of each student.  Research studies show that a comprehensive approach to education is most effective when preparing students to be productive members of a global society.  As elementary school principals, we value the development of the whole child.
