My experience at Apple Valley High School has been great. I love my teachers and how they put effort into their jobs. I feel very close with some of my teachers and feel safe in their classrooms. They are currently reconstructing the front entrance and will keep expanding their renovations through these next few years. We are a STEM school, which is great for future access to people and experience. Our schools' wrestling and basketball teams are incredible. I've loved all the extracurricular activities I've been in which include, mock trial, softball, Women's Choir, Varsity Edition Choir, Jazz singers, R&B Band, Broadway singers, Musical theater, and Volleyball. It is a great place to learn and grow.

As a student of Apple Valley High School, I hear a lot of comments about teachers, other students and food. I hear some teachers are the best and some teachers are the worst. I have my own experience with that. I had teachers who are energetic and excited to teach which influences students to be excited to learn. Some other teachers would seem bored, seem pissed and monotone. About the students, it is very loud in the hallways and I would hear bad things about other students every 5 minutes. I wish there was more positive energy. As for the food, it is same old, cheap looking school lunch. Students would do anything ti get better food or extra food. Food would dictate one's behavior sometimes.
Apple Valley High School is a very diverse school which is something I truly enjoy. It is a top school in Minnesota. We are very well rounded in success with sports and speech. Most of the teachers are very kind and helpful. But like every typical school there are problems, the food isn't very enjoyable. There are a lot of changes going on this year like construction and new school apps. so it makes it hard for the seniors last year and for new students to adapt. There are some problems with favoritism with some teachers and administration. Sports are very important to our school since we have famous sport players coming from our school which sometimes makes focus on only men sports at the school a little over done.
