Apple Valley High School Reviews

Even though AVHS is a public high school, the truly caring staff, very helpful counselors, excellent teachers, devoted sports coaches, spirited students and the approachable administration contribute to the warm "family feel" of an otherwise large establishment. The academic and extracurricular opportunities are limitless and each student can find his or her own niche easily. I always had ambitious dreams for my children and had planned on giving them an "elite" private school education "down the hill". But what I discovered is that my children can get an equally excellent and more importantly, well-rounded and challenging education right here in the High Desert without an "elitist" price tag . Thank you AVHS for your high quality of support and standards!

I enjoyed Apple Valley High school. I was involved in sports and in clubs. I ran cross country as a freshmen and although I found out distance was not best for me, the coaches always encouraged me to keep going. Additionally, I was a varsity sprinter on the track team my sophomore, junior, and senior year and loved it. The coaches really care about each athlete and works one on one to correct a technique (depending on your event). Each year I saw improvement. Furthermore, I was involved in the program/club MAHST all four years and I loved it! This program gave me an insight of what I really want to do as a future career and the teachers and coordinators brought in multiple guest speakers from various departments in the medical field. They were always willing to work with the students to meet their [students] needs. They worked with me when it was time to apply for colleges and figure out my ultimate career goal.
The faculty and students at Apple Valley High School greatly engage themselves in school pride. Initiative was taken to create a unified school environment by implementing the SPARK program. Assemblies and pep rally’s were held to create a hype that students more than willingly engaged in. There are various programs that comply with a diverse set of interest such as FFA, CAMP, Key Club, Cross Fit, Eco Club, gardening, a fresh deal of sports, and among more. I myself took part in cross country, track, tennis, eco club, and AP/ Honors to integrate , myself in the components that make attending Apple Valley High School an adventurous experience.
