There is definitely a very competitive atmosphere at Amador. However, it is a overall a great school, with mostly good teachers, and school spirit. The more involved you are at the school, the more fun your experience will be. We do not have the best sports teams, but our academics are far superior to most other schools. Go Dons!
Review Amador Valley High School
Large class sizes, unpleasant students, teachers don't bother to learn student names. Outdated technology, even in silicon valley. Go figure!

Not a good school at all.
Very educational and diverse school. Good balance of academics, athletics, and extra curriculars. Go Dons!
