My experience attending school from elementary to high school in the Covina-Valley Unified has been quite good. Throughout the transition all the way up to high school has been different but different in a good way. The Teachers and Administration are very supportive, kind and dedicated to presenting a better future/path. I love the environment that they make us feel like because i believe they are truly here to help us make a difference in our future and help us grown into amazing young adults while realizing that dreams are just something we have to work for. One thing that i wish that they can improve is to stop limiting the spirit of a high school, they are very strict with student related activities from rallies to football games, I hope that they truly understand the fundamentals students have when they are given freedom to express what a student body should look like and how much more memorable their experiences will be when they look at high school.

Covina Valley Unified School District is one of the best districts in all of California. The efforts that it takes to make sure that all of its students get the best education is amazing. Also amazing is the many pathways that each student has the opportunity to take, such as FFA, SHOE, AVID, and Music/Fine Arts. Overall, each school has amazing education, friendly and caring teachers, great pathways for each student to take, and nice campuses.
Me experience with covina valley unified school district has been really great. I’ve been offered great academic courses and extracurricular activities. CVUSD has a very friendly and kind staff that do their best to make the students’ future successful. I personally have enjoyed my time with covina valley unified school district. One thing I would change is they offer more courses for students like me who want to go into nursing. I know some schools within the district do have courses that help with students who want to go into the nursing major but not all schools have it. Unfortunately the school that I attended did not offer one of those courses. It would be great if for future students they would offer more classes that involve medical field majors and preparing those students for that future.
