Crescenta Valley is an excellent high school. As all high schools, there are pros, cons and some mishaps along the way. Their are some true gems amongst the staff that are passionate about their jobs and student’s success. The curriculum is challenging for all levels and the athletics truly stand out. There is room for everyone at CVHS. I always felt supported and welcomed. Only problem, parking!

I think the school is excellent in terms of academic achievement and the importance placed on the preparation of students for college and achieving a higher level education. School spirit is exuded from students, and a sense of unity encompasses the school. The administration is quick to identify any issues that may arise and deals with them promptly and effectively, creating a safe learning environment for students to be able to focus on their academic success. In terms of diversity, the school places an emphasis on inclusion and creating a sense of belonging for all who attend; many different races attend, creating a diverse student body with lots of cultural identity.
It was a great school! I have made some amazing memories and friends, and I have learned a lot. My only problem is that when there would be a problem, the administration basically could not do anything about it. As well, some teachers really seemed like they did not like their jobs. School was still very safe and very competitive, as the competitiveness allowed me to push out of my comfort zone.
