As a former student at Dakota Valley I was incredibly blessed with all of the technology that was given to students to help us further our education. The atmosphere is so fun and welcoming. I would not change my K-12 education for anything!
Dakota Valley High School is an amazing school with countless opportunities to advance your academic career. Dakota Valley has a brand new building with excellent classrooms for learning with state of the art projectors and technology. The labs are also well equipped for science classes. The only downsides are the focus on sports and some of administration. The administration focuses too much on sports while other areas can be lacking. They also make several questionable decisions concerning homework and testing policies. Otherwise it is a very clean and safe building with many opportunities.
