Welcome to Valley West Elementary

    Welcome to the Valley West website!

    Thank you for stopping by our site!  If you ever visit our campus, you will witness, first-hand, the powerful work of our vibrant scholars and dedicated staff. For now, we hope this website will give you a glimpse into our world.


    When you talk with community members, parents, and district leaders about Valley West, they will tell you we have a strong and experienced teaching staff. They will tell you our scholars are committed to rigorous academics and they will tell you that we are always striving to become better. This is who we are!

    In my role as principal, I place safety and security amongst my list of priorities while ensuring intentional, quality, and research-based instruction. The holistic development of our young scholars is of great importance to me and that responsibility will remain at the forefront of all we do under my leadership. I am committed to striving for a community-focused learning environment with challenging coursework, integrated S.T.E.M. learning, and high expectations for our scholars and their futures.

    Should you have questions about the school, please feel free to reach out to me. My email is swoods6@houstonisd.org and again, thank you for visiting our school website!
