Garnet Valley School District Reviews

I feel like the elementary schools are pretty average, the teachers are nice, they have good programs, and such. The middle school is pretty okay too, they have a lot of activities for everyone, but the students can get really clique-y. "Everyone has to fit in" and whatnot. The high school is great. There are a ton of clubs, from Science Olympiad to GSA to a movie watching club. The high school is really known for their girls lacrosse team, theater program and Hi-Q team. They have a mandatory Career Development class that everyone think is a waste of time, but it really helps you prepare for the future. You research colleges, scholarships, write college essays, a resume, and look into careers. They have individual parent and teacher conferences until middle school. In middle school they do it by class and by high school, the parents don't really feel the need to go in anymore.
Review Garnet Valley School District
Garnet Valley School District was excellent at providing a wide variety of courses at multiple academic levels. The district was very safe and the vast majority of the teachers are very well qualified and helpful. The AP curriculum offered was extensive and students with disabilities were well accommodated from what I can tell. The school spirit and sports were fantastic with multiple state titles being won in my short time at the high school. There was also a large range of extracurricular activities, but I found many of them to be shallow and less rewarding than they might be at other schools. My other complaint is with the guidance office. Little to no work was done to help students get to where they want to be after school.
Garnet Valley is a district that has given me so many opportunities for my future. The teachers of Garnet Valley are some of the most qualified, educated, and caring professionals I have ever met, and each of them care about their students so much. I have come to make so many strong relationships with many teachers in all of my years in the district, but mostly in my last four years as a high school student. There are teachers, aids, and administrative employees in every single department that I have bonded with and can go to with anything. I have never felt so ready for anything as I feel about college after attending GVHS. I know I am so prepared already, and there will be many times in the future when that idea is even further solidified. To all the Garnet Valley staff and faculty, thank you; your dedication to the well-being and education of your students is noticed and appreciated.
