What I do love about Central Valley High School is their attentiveness to cleanliness (on the surface.) Hallways are generally clean, toilets are pretty alright, and I haven't seen hair in any food yet. There are problems with cockroaches though, especially in the girl's showers near the wellness center. Showers could use maintenance. The most effort they have put into ecological stuff is the Environmental Science classes, I would like to see some more effort put into making the school eco-friendly. Chorus program is sucky. Programs for anyone with mental disabilities are the minimum. Great test scores though.

Central Valley provides us with a great educational experience. The teachers teach us much needed knowledge that can be useful in our college readiness, as well as our future careers. The clubs and activities at Central Valley leave you with a feeling of pride and community!
