Crescenta Valley High School allows you to excel academically and personally, however, the competition between students may be difficult sometimes. This school provides many different AP classes and honors classes to develop students as a young college student, which is nice, but a few of the teachers here sometimes do not know what's going on. Many students tried to reach the school administration and district administration to share their opinions on some teachers and carry out farther actions, but this has not been working out so well. Except the pressure that you may get from this competition, and some school teachers, I believe this school is perfect for students who want to excel academically and personally through clubs and other extracurriculars.

Great community, safe environment and awesome teachers! The counselors are very welcoming and helpful. Athletics is a huge deal in CV, mostly in every sport league champs. Coaches are amazing they want the win
The school is great! Friendly teachers and they care about every single student. Everyone is nice to each other, nice campus and clean. Awesome sports teams and marching band. It would be better if they create a dance team or club in the campus.
