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.

I enjoyed every day of High School as I became a leader and made life-long friends.
I was introduced to music at Bethel Springs Elementary School. I became a drummer and joined a small band with two friends. We performed for charity events and at Workd Cafe Live for friends and family.
In Garnet Valley Middle School, I performed in the jazz band and the school concert band.
In Garnet Valley High School, I joined marching band and played cymbals after an upper class man became my mentor. I also joined the Garnet Valley Drumline, which changed my life.
As a junior, I became the mentor and the section leader for the cymbals section. I became a leader in marching band and in drumline. I have traveled to Hawaii with marching band and to Wildwood, New Jersey with drumline. We will perform at Universal Studios in March.
I am grateful for my mentors at GV; for the superb education at GV; and for my life-long GV friends. I am now prepared to take on college.
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.
