Anderson Valley Junior-Senior High School Reviews

So far, my experience with Anderson Valley Junior/Senior High School has not been bad. An advantage of it being a small school is that bullying is not an issue, I won't say it is non-existent, but it is not common. Since the high school is so small, with a population of less than 300, it does not receive as much attention as larger schools. There is not many clubs or organizations to chose from, but there is some that you can take a part of if you ask around because they will usually do not publicly recruit. Although, some teachers have started to organize extra-curriculum events aimed specifically at junior high students, so I can say the administration has started to improve things. Also, recently, I have seen some healthier options that had been requested last year at, surprisingly, the students request.

In general, I feel AVHS is a decent school. I've had some wonderful teachers over the last few years and I've enjoyed most of my classes. I feel they often misuse the money they do have. Over the last 4 years, I have never had the same Math teacher two years in a row and there's a similar situation for History. I think I could've had a better experience at a different school, mostly due to how few classes and extracurricular opportunities are actually available. Overall, The school needs more funding and a more reasonable school board that listens to the students.
The teachers at this school are involved in the student's lives and their plans in their future. They are also effective in their teaching styles. About three years ago, many of our teachers retired or left, which lowered the schools teaching standard that it had because the past teachers had been great. Over the last two years there have been many teachers that have come for a year and then left or replaced by another teacher. During my senior year, many teachers look like they will stay and continue to teach, allowing them to be more involved in the students life over their six years here. This will create a better learning environment for every student. This is due to our schools small class size.
