Valley View Public School, located at 1840 Valley View Road in Val Caron, is Valley East’s only public French Immersion school, which first opened in 1961.

In 2007, construction began for a new school for students of Val Caron Public School and Valley View Public School. In September 2007, the new Valley View officially opened its doors and became Sudbury’s first green school. Students from Val Caron Public School joined in November.

Students from Kindergarten to Grade 2 at Valley View are fully immersed in the French language. In Grade 3, English classes are introduced with a gradual increase of English programming until Grade 7 and 8, at which time students have equal learning in French and English, helping students obtain a well-rounded education.

Extracurricular activities play an integral role to the community spirit at Valley View. Our gymnasium is home to many sports teams and our school also runs various general interests clubs throughout the year.

The school council at Valley View Public School meets regularly with their continued focus on enhancing parent involvement with the school community. 

Our staff believes strongly in keeping in touch with the ever-changing demands of society, while ensuring they are teaching our students the most current material in the most efficient manner possible.

Our students personify Rainbow District School Board's character education traits and continually make us proud.
