Maple Valley Elementary, grades K-6, was established in 1963 as a cooperative endeavor of area churches.  It has flourished over the years as an interdenominational school with an emphasis on serving families of Bible based Christian churches.  Maple Valley Elementary became a part of Rainier Christian Schools in 1995.

School begins each morning at 8:30 AM and ends at 3:00 PM.  Our dedicated teachers strive to make learning FUN, while ensuring that students learn the fundamentals, and reach their individual potentials.

Every Wednesday morning students and staff share in a time of glorifying God in song and sharing God’s Word with special speakers.

Maple Valley Elementary offers:

  • Academic achievement
  • Structured environment
  • Teachers and staff who have Washington State credentials
  • Phonics based reading and traditional math skills
  • Class sizes appropriate for learning
  • Music Program
  • Band and Strings (4th – 6th grades)
  • Physical Education
  • Computer lab and computers in the classrooms
  • Our lab and classrooms are online
  • Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF). The PTF is an excellent opportunity for parents to get involved and support students and staff while getting to know the parent body as well.

Our staff is here because of God’s calling to serve at Rainier Christian Schools.  The staff has devotions each morning prior to the beginning of school to specifically pray for students, parents and the day ahead of us; knowing that God expects us to train, educate and develop each student for the glory of God.
