Amador Valley is a great school with excellent teachers and facilities! I am going into my senior year and still enjoy all the resources available to every student in every class. I never felt like my academic progress was hindered by a lack of resources or teachers. All teachers cover the necessary content, but some make the course overly difficult. There is a lot of school spirit and preparation for any testing. However, the only complaint I have is the food. I feel like the low quality of the food is disgusting and sometimes, I feel it is not edible. Great school overall though!

The school is a great experience, and you can find many supportive teachers that will help you on your high school journey! Academics are taken very seriously, but if you are passionate about learning, you'll find a place in the community.
I liked the fact that there are a wide variety of classes, even unconventional ones like Ceramics. It was nice that, along with academic classes, I could be introduced to skills such as pottery-making. It engaged my creative side and I'm glad Amador offers it. One thing I would change about Amador is that I would encourage the school student culture to relax and not be so competitive about everything. While the competition has enabled the school to be successful in competitions, it can be very stressful.
