Central Valley High School Reviews

46 reviews

I attended Central Valley High School from the year 2015 to 2019. It was challenging going to this high school because not many in the community had a positive opinion about the institution. I remember how CVHS struggled year after year to be a competitive force among the other high schools in the region. Since I'm not a sports fanatic, what I hoped to mainly get out of my high school experience were lifetime memories and a good academic background in the field that I was interested in. The certainty that I would get all of these things from a high school that not many wanted to brag about attending was challenged during my first year as a freshman. Before submerging too far, I looked to the seniors and wondered what it was that had made them stay. The school manifested a culture of persistence and stronger together that inspired me to stay there and made my experience all that more special. With this message, my class was able to give the school a distinguishing title.

Central Valley provides an amazing college program so that students can have the ability to gain credits before they go into college along with being able to take college classes as well! They have many opportunities to be involved with activities such as college field trips, along with camp trips to places like Yosemite!
I have attended Central Valley High School for all four years. The sports are pretty amateur. There are great classes offered regarding advanced placement classes, however, the other classes lack an overall college readiness unfortunately. As for the administration, there are a few bad apples that sadly outweigh the bunch. Under a newer authority, rules have been forced too harshly and as a college connection student, I feel utterly marginalized.
