About Our School

Valley Elementary School is the largest school in Pike County serving just under 1000 students. We are located 10 miles south of the city of Pikeville on Highway 23. For many years, the former schools that made up Valley Elementary had been high performing schools, and now that we, staff and students, are in our new building, it is our earnest desire to continue that tradition. Valley Elementary has over 50 certified staff members and over 60 classified members. Valley, having gone through a major transition over the last three years, has shown notable improvement. Our middle school has gone from a school of need in 2010 to one of the top middle schools in the region. Our elementary school currently ranks at the top among the 15 elementary schools in Pike County. Overall, Valley Elementary ranks in the 98th percentile among all schools in the state of Kentucky.
