Central Valley is a very interactive school where many people want to do good in the community around them. Some things cause issues because of the fact that COVID-19 made situations. The teachers at Central Valley are super nice and always supportive and helpful. The school is full of diversity even though the students are not always acceptive of that. They prepare every student for the future and want the best for each of their students. Sports and activities are very popular and show the best sides of Central Valley. Also, the parents are super involved with school activities.
I absolutely love it here, the culture is so amazing. The staff is great, everyone is super welcoming and friendly. The school is always very clean and organized, and classes run smoothly. All extra curricular activities are phenomenal and should be mentioned. I would like to see the school put a little more effort into Fine Arts.
I really love the CV environment, they do a lot for their students even during COVID. For example, they followed guidelines and still are trying to do events for graduating seniors. I love the counseling office, it's not often that you find counselors genuinely trying to help with our future.
I can very honestly say that my experience at this high school was extremely fulfilling and meaningful. Even though this school includes over 3,000 students, I still had teachers who created real relationships with me. This school works very hard to make everyone feel included. There is a variety of clubs and they are passionate about sports. Each big game played with our rivalry school is called something fun and exciting. They even host us at an arena for our schools final basketball game. The access to classes they provide is astounding. You can choose anywhere from yoga or team sports to theatre or learning the behind the scenes to theatre productions or pottery and calligraphy and not to mention classes that offer college credit like photography, early childhood development, and careers in education!! The school takes time to come up with themes days that make school so exciting. I truly love this school and know that most every other student feels very similar.
From spending the past couple years attending Central Valley High School in Spokane Valley, Washington, I have been quite impressed with how structured and successful it is. Everything, from classes to sports is very organized and well put together. Teachers are great and really help students learn to succeed.
Positive environment and caring teachers. Relatively progressive in standards and community. INCREDIBLE Theatre program renowned in Washington and neighboring states. Sports are great as well. The only two complaints with the school is overcrowding as well as a low diversity. The school consists of a lot white people.
Central Valley is an excellent school because of the passion behind each employee. Everyone makes you feel like you matter and every adult has an empathetic heart for students.
I loved the band program at CVHS. It gave me a lot of great opportunities and experiences. There were a few teachers I made really great bonds with as well and overall the school was pretty decent.
It was a really great learning and social environment! All of the teachers were very happy and supportive to make the high school experience easier. Our athletics programs were very successful which made it lots of fun to cheer on our teams. The only downfall for this school is the size. The school was so large it was so much more difficult to create opportunities in sports and clubs and just getting from class to class was always a struggle.
It has great education, just because there are so many students its hard to take classes you want to.
Central Valley is very good at preparing their students academically and always has interactive events going on. However, there are times where the arts programs don't feel as appreciated as the sports, and communication to families is very poor. Otherwise, a great school full of opportunities.
Looking back at attending this high school, it was terrible. 4 years on the music program, they didn't teach you any music theory at all. Students that never played an instrument were thrown into the fire and there is a saying that stuck "the band is only as strong as it's weakest link". This created a hierarchy of students with super high ego, and the one's struggling kept struggling. Preparing for college was a joke, the class given was more of a "free" period to goof off, none of the students in my class took it seriously. Too laid back in most classes, which decreased the quality of student life in general. "Clicks" were super relevant in high school, you were either liked or hated, there was no in-between. Many students there were either too egotistic and were praised for that, or nonconfrontational and suffered because they were unable to state what was truly happening. They did a terrible job of preparing students compared to the city schools on my honest opinion.
Central Valley is an amazing school with many clubs and sports to join so you can feel apart of something bigger.
The staff and teachers at Central Valley High School are for the most part very good and strive to involve and engage all of their students. The school suffers from a serious over crowding issue that diminishes individual involvement and communication at the school. There are a variety of AP classes offered in different subjects if you are looking for more challenging curriculum or a chance to earn college credit.
The administration and teachers are average and could listen to students and parents better. The academics are very satisfactory while the sports are great and a big part of student life. Big campus but definitely overcrowded and in desperate need of more parking. Lots of in-class and private opportunities to learn about how to prepare for life after high school.
