The school was located on SW 6-44-14 W2 on land purchased from Henry Eastland, Sr. The school was built by Henry Eastland. It opened in January 1935 and closed June 1963.

A meeting was held to decide a name for the school. Someone suggested,”What about that valley south of the school.?” Someone else said, “Yes, and the school is on the crest.” So the school was named Valecrest.

Early board members were O. Klevin, J. Torrence, F. Wenbourne, and Mrs. I. Klevin.
