I moved to Spokane Valley the summer before my first year of high school. I was able to make friends very quickly in the happy, welcoming environment. My school had so many opportunities to travel the country and even world! I participated in marching band my junior year, and we traveled to compete in California. Our school has a great marching band program, and even though it is a no-cut program at my school, we compete and win against all our surrounding schools. I also participated in a spring play theater production of Romeo and Juliet. A high school performing a Shakespeare play is no small feat. Our school performs two plays and a musical every year. Our theater program is well-know for it’s amazing productions! The staff at my school was amazing and loving and kind. I am so proud to have been a part of Central Valley High School and it’s amazing programs.

Central Valley High School is a great school. We have great sports, academics and an all around good experience. I would like to see a change in the drugs and vaping part of our school, it got so bad my junior year that the administrators had to take the doors to the bathrooms off. Taking the doors off didn't help, we still have a huge problem with underage teens using drugs on school grounds. I would like to see the school try and figure out another way to get kids my age to stop putting bad chemicals in their bodies. Overall Central Valley High School is an amazing place to complete my high school career!
Computer Science related classes in this school are awesome! Especially brand new cyber security class, we learn deeply about OS hardening, hacking, and network security. It’s very interesting and prepares students for future career. Another great thing about it, is opportunity to get certified in computer science related field.
