Covina-Valley Unified School District Reviews

What I like about Covina-Valley Unified school district is the school spirit they uplift for students beginning their journey toward their desired career. Covina-Valley Unified district not only provides general education but prepares students for the working environment in a college and/or in a job.

What I would like to see change in the Covina-Valley unified school district is the poor quality of food they serve for students. Other than that, there's not much to say.

At South Hills High School, the main focus of most faculty and any sort of campus director is the image that the school gives off. With a long reputation of being the "rich school" it is up to the staff to maintain that facade. As a senior who has walked the campus for almost a full four years, I can say that this school does not prioritize their focus appropriately. Instead of properly evaluating that all their teachers and staff are adequate enough to maintain their position, the faculty instead focuses on which teachers could double as an athletic coach. From my experience at South Hills the baseball and softball fields have been redone at least once a year, while other sports such as swim and tennis don't have the apropriate equipment or even a place to practice on campus.
I attended schools in the Covina-Valley Unified School District since I was 5 all the way through graduation and I had great experiences. Many, if not all the teachers that I've had have always been very helpful and really cared about each individual's success in and out of the classroom setting. The high school I attended, Northview, was a very small, friendly campus. Everyone got along for the most part and there was much diversity and everyone was accepting of people's ideas and cultures.
