Apple Valley Senior High School Reviews

There are many things I like about Apple Valley Senior High School. The majority of the teacher are very good at there jobs and explain lessons in a way that high schoolers can understand. I believe that high school is supposed to prepare you for college. Apple Valley does a great job of that. For example, I took the mentor field class which is a class where students are able to explore possible careers of interest. This class was very similar to a college class. We meet as a class every Monday. This class helped me grow and get a taste of a college curriculum. However, there are some areas that the school could improve on. One area is the English department. Students are struggling with spelling and grammar but teachers are doing a poor job of explaining it.

It was an overall excellent school. I had a great experience there. From the administration to teacher, they were all involved in the lives of the students. I felt very safe there. Even if students had altercations it was handled in a very proper manner. The education was very excellent, they had proper resources for us to use, and even if we had difficulties learning they implemented effective methods so that we can reach our overall goals. I recommend this school to many students. It has prepared me for college, and shaped me as well. I am able to retain knowledge on a higher level and give off that knowledge to others as well.
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.
