I am a parent of 3 Valley View kids. I don't fool myself into thinking my children are "perfect", but I have taught them to treat people well and to respect others. It is the only school my kids have ever gone to, but the older they get the more I realize how bad the values of the majority of the kids are. I mean, it is all about money. We are comfortable, but not rich. They don't treat my kids bad, but I hear the stories of how they treat other, less fortunate kids, and it is wrong.

Am I the only person that sees this pattern? If you don't have money, you aren't even worthy of friendship? There are just too many mean kids at that school.

Hate to break it to you, but that unfortunately is the 'norm'. Most kids are cruel and it has always been that way and always will be.
They could go to Jonesboro, where mine goes and not be worthy of friendship because they don't drink, nor do drugs, or get into trouble, they study and make good grades. If you don't do that bad and illegal stuff at JHS, you don't fit in with the cool kids. Trust me, you are very fortunate to have your children shielded from some of the mess that goes on in the other schools.

Uh actually I had a rather large group of friends that never did anything like that and we were cool with the kids that drank too, gotta find your place but you can still get along with the other kids, I graduated last year, I would know.

Don't judge all Valley View kids by a few. I know some absolutely wonderful kids at Valley View high school. Every school has some kids who are cruel and make fun of others. Many of them do it because they have low self esteem and it makes them feel good to belittle others.
I know what you mean

I worked with the sweetest, nicest woman I ever met in my life for 17 years and when her health got bad she and her husband moved to that school district. I saw her with lots of kids, mine included, and she was great with them and really enjoyed spending time with them. They were taken totally off guard by the little monster creeps and their parents who live all around them. They are both such quiet, kind people and it makes me so mad to learn how the nasty people and their kids and dogs keep going to my friend's house (uninvited) looking to cause trouble. They even have had to call the cops several times. I have tried talking her into moving back here, but she keeps thinking that the bad people there will get nicer and leave them alone. Thank you for teaching your kids some respect and manners. Yours must be the only ones in that area. Or maybe it's just that the few good parents with good kids keep them at home instead of having them run loose looking to make trouble. There are some bad kids wherever you go because there are so many bad parents, but I never saw the kinds of stuff here that she tells me about going on there.

My kids go to VV and if you want to be in the high school principles elite student clic, you must go to Central Baptist Church. His son dates the Snell guy from K8 daughter. Snell went to work for Central Baptist recently. If you want a job at VV, you almost have to be a central member or a family member of the administration. Muckensturn, who is a big Central guy, got his daughter hired not long ago. Principles wife got a job at VV and tries to run the place and is not even a teacher!Asst. Supt kid is a cheerleader and the cheer coach gets exactly what she wants and the heck with the other teams needs. Cheer comes first.
We need new mgmt. at VV bad. We need a policy that says no family can be hired by mgmt. Only makes sense! The good ole' boy system is alive and well at VV!

Always has been. Always will be. The school has gotten larger and so that system has just become more obvious and a little harder to break into.

My kids go to Jonesboro schools and its the same way there, but this is not just the kids fault it falls back on the Parents. They are given anything they want and dont have to do anything for it. They dont know how to earn anything they have, they are spoiled rotten and the parents are not teaching them any Manners. So this goes on everywhere not just VV

I graduated last year and was in that group with this guy as well so I can second that. We had a ton of fun and we didn't have to smoke weed or drink to do it. Goes to show there are cool people that don't do the bad stuff that you can hang out with. It's just there were two groups, the "good group and the bad group" is what we called it. Simple but true.

If you are that unhappy, maybe you can send your kids to Jonesboro, Nettleon, Brooklnd, or Westside.

Have you ever been to a sporting event? Out of all the schools we play the Valley View kids are by far the worst behaved. I thought it was just because my kids got to Annie Camp and the kids were trying to look big to the "big" school. Then I talked to a friend of mine and she said when her kid's school played them in basketball the V.V. students started to chant "No one likes you" when they were being beat in the 4th quarter(this included V.V.cheerleaders) It seems like the adults in that school would want their kids to show some class. I'm guessing not though.

Kids can be so mean anywhere. I just woRry about valley view kids being so ignorant of diversity in their little"wealthy world" that they take it too far. A friend of mine has a daughter that was deeply depressed from how the other girls' at v.v were treating her. She even is trying to graduate early as to get away from it.

I don't know any of the high schoolers but I do know some of the elementary kids and they are already brats. Brats who are mean to each other and ignore the ones who aren't in their little group. Of course they are spoiled by their rich parents who think that their child's crap doesn't stink, doctor's kids and such. One particular one pulled such a mean stunt that he was going to get a 3 day suspension but of course his mommy and daddy talked the principal out of going through with it. A good life lesson for him for sure.

Well, I can say that I do have talks to my kids about the "real world" and how it isn't always like that. I agree that almost all schools have their snobby people, but it is overwhelming at Valley View. I have talked to my wife and kids about moving, but they don't want to leave their friends. It seems, though, each time I hear a story of the way the kids act, it truly makes me angry. The kids are so petty and, of course, they learn this behavior from their parents. I have lived and traveled in "those circles" before, but I have separated myself from those types because they are fake and not true friends. I don't want to move my kids, but the belittling is an everyday occurance. Again, fortunately, my kids aren't the targets, but I hate it that I know all it would take is for us to lose our jobs or stop driving nice cars or whatever for my kids to become the targets. I have noticed that even a large majority of the teachers have the same attitudes.

Don't even get me started on the fake, pretentious parents. It truly is no wonder the kids act like they do.

This year at the fair, we ran into a group of Valley View parents. We stopped and talked to all of them. Although there are a lot of snobs at the school, we are friendly to everyone. As we spoke, two other "pretend rich couples" walked over and totally walked between us and the people we were talking to. They literally, blocked us off and snubbed us...never said hello or anything. they just acted as if we weren't good enough to even talk to. I'm not trying to be petty myself and I don't have my feelings on my shoulders, I just don't like snobs. The old me would have kicked their butts, but lucky for them, I have grown up a little and we just walked around them and said goodbye to the few couples we were talking to.

Again, point being: If grown adults would act like that, it is no wonder the children act the way they do. I'm just saying...

And, you know what is even crazier??? We probably make more money than those two couples that even treated us that way...we just have decided to live in the country and not in RICHpoint, Dunwoody or Layman's. Where you live and what you drive does not make WHO YOU ARE.

I can't believe people that go to school anywhere in Jonesboro think they are dealing with a diverse population. Really? Move to Memphis, Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, or Los Angeles or even head down to Earle, Marianna or Hughes and then you can be holier than thou about diversity.

Well, I suppose that is true. I have traveled alot and we really don't know "diversity" here.

However, for OUR AREA, Valley View is about as UNdiversified as it gets. If I had my way, I'd just move the kids to another school district so they can at least see that money isn't everything, but you know, I have to raise happy kids and I can't always force my views on them. I was just curious, overall, if I was just being sensitive to the issue because I don't like snobs or if other people see it as well.
