Conestoga Valley Senior High School Reviews

I very much enjoyed my time at Conestoga Valley HS. The school continues to increase in its diversity, which is encouraging and there were a number of clubs and activities that students could be involved in. The school is made up of some excellent educators, however, the administration does not always match up with that. In my time there, they were not effective at handling situations that arose that could damage their image as an administration. They seem to have been in an enormous amount of debt while I was there, which appears most prominently in the quality of their facilities. Nevertheless, the STEM programs, as well as the drama program seem not to have taken a hit, and I was always impressed at the opportunities presented to students in these areas. I just wished the music and arts programs continued to receive the same support. Sports are average, but the district does not always seem to do the best at hiring the best coaches to facilitate success.

I moved to Conestoga Valley in 9th grade. Being a new student to the district I was considered an outcast. I walked the halls alone, sat and ate lunch alone, and never got picked for projects. It's like I was an invisible person. I went from having a big friend group to no one. This is not how I excepted to spend my high school years. My mother and I talked to the staff and counselors multiple times, they did nothing about it. I tried to talk to people and be out going, it resulted in nothing. The school doesn't care about their students and only cares about academics and sports.
I had an overall good experience at CV. You always feel welcome and excepted by everyone, and staff makes it easy for you to be comfortable in each class, or anywhere in the school. We have some great educators that guide you through the learning process, encourage you, and actually want you to succeed. There is always places where students are able to go to talk wether they are stressed, sad, having a hard time, or just would like to talk. Therefore, in my opinion, I would give Conestoga Valley High School a solid 5 stars.
