If you are a middle school (7-8 grade) student here, you will be treated like garbage by the high school and their administration. There are so many rules for 7th and 8th grade students that don’t apply to high schoolers. The school’s facilities are great, but you have to obtain permission to use them, which is understandable, but it will almost always be denied. Once, for a Student Council meeting, the teacher booked the first meeting, a month into the school year, on the 1st day. We were scheduled from 2:30 to 3 and at 2:55, the group scheduled at 3 for the LGI was rushing us to leave. School dances must be conducted at the elementary school, because the principal won’t let them happen at CVA. Everything else is making this a better review

The school overall is pretty average. Some of the teachers care about your future and work to prepare you for it, but others couldn't care less. There isn't really a focus on being academically successful. Most students took the "easy way out" and joined the easiest classes for the easy-A. The Honors students weren't necessarily smarter, they were just more resourceful. Only a few students were really invested, only a few teachers were invested; it was somewhat of a joke, honestly. There is a great deal of diversity in the classes offered, though, but not much diversity in the students. There were a handful of after school clubs and they would go on some pretty cool trips.
I moved because when the classes are too big, its impossible to get extra help, or teacher one on one. Bullying was never taken seriously. Worst few years I had there. The merge was the worst thing the districts did, cant imagine if it were all four schools like planned.
