It’s an extremely small school that is limited in its extra curriculars and class choices. Also, the students are behind those of other schools in their work and classes as well as on standardized testing such as the ACT. It lacks in many college preparatory classes such as calculus. The building was also not built as a long term school and therefore seems to be constantly undergoing new renovations. I would not recommend this school to anyone who plans to go to a middle or top tier university or play sports past division 2.

My experience at Caney Valley High was a short two years. I moved to Caney from a rival school my junior year of high school and graduated from Caney my senior year. Caney Valley treated me as one of their own. The staff at Caney Valley High are a different breed of people, they love each and every one of their students. I decided to further my education at Coffeyville Community College and Caney teaching staff has successfully prepared me for the challenging, yet rewarding experience that college brings. Not only do they have excellent teachers, Caney also has many diverse excellent extracurricular activities and phenomenal coaches. My only complaint is the school lunches as they were sub-par to say the least. Overall, my time at Caney Valley, although short, was a great experience and it makes me wish I had gone to school there since kindergarten.
I believe our school district deffinantly stands out from all the rest. At our school, the student body is more of a family. We stand up and look out for one another. The staff at Caney Valley is also highly qualified and take their jobs seriously. All of the teachers are there to help any student who needs assistance and to push us to our limits. Our school has changed for the better over the last few years with new teachers and staff. This has been a great thing for our school with more discipline and less distractions for classrooms.
