Garnet Valley offers a great education and has a beautiful campus! The teachers are very experienced and are always there to stay after if you need extra help. In addition, the school is very safe. There is always a several security guards patrolling the campus to ensure our safety. Also, the amount of after school activities is outstanding. The list never ends, from lacrosse all the way to robotics club.

Garnet Valley was a place where I grew immensely. The teachers at Garnet Valley are honestly some of the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They continually went out of their way to ensure each student felt comfortable within the classroom setting as well as with the material being taught. Mr.Politano, my freshman biology teacher, was truly the best teacher I have ever had. His unending encouragement to try harder and to never give up gave me the confidence to continue to learn, even when my test scores weren't as high as I had hoped. The information was presented in various and creative ways that genuinely sparked my interest. I saw how alumni would come back to visit him after they'd succeeded through college, and how genuinely happy he was to see their achievements. I greatly appreciated how he treated us like adults and with the utmost respect. I have been intrinsically motivated to pursue a science career ever since that biology class my freshman
year.
Growing up in this school district my entire life, I have become accustomed to the excellent lifestyle that this school community provides. The education is great, there are plenty of student activity opportunities to become involved in, and there is excitement and oneness built around the different aspects of community events (i.e. sports, clubs, competitions, etc.). The teachers are nice and conform to your needs while providing the assistance and education required to succeed in a college setting. The administrators are great, forming close relationships with the students while dealing with small issues. Overall, the school is a great area to grow up in.
