I’ve been to tons of different schools before, this is honestly the best school. I can’t think of how this district could get any better! The food is restaurant quality, the teachers are amazing and always develop rapports with their students. The students are all kind to one another and non-judgemental. It doesn’t matter your race, age, sexuality, background, culture, every one is one big family in the award-winning Garnet Valley

Garnet Valley has excellent schools with mostly excellent teachers. There are a few bad apples here and there but overall most of the teachers are phenomenal. The classes are very diverse and the Hight school mostly lets the students choose which classes they want to take. I used this to my advantage and choose to push myself by taking classes that were going to be a bit on the tougher side for me and it worked out great. Garnet Valley has taught me so much I just wish it was more diverse. Some times the students at Garnet Valley feel like they are in a bubble so shielded from so of the hard truths that happen outside of the area. Garnet Valley is a wonderful, academic school but it needs to make more of an effort to show their student how they can help the world around them and how not everyone has the privilege to go to such a nice school.
Garnet Valley School District has one of the best educations for students. The students are very nice and the teachers are very patient and help every single student reach their greatest potential. I am apart of the individualized education program. (IEP) Garnet Valley has helped me so much with it. My teachers have helped me understand my disabilities and how to overcome them. The administration is outstanding at the high school. Our principal is very kind and always says hello to every student he sees in the hallways. Our guidance counselors always tell us their doors are open and that they are here for us. I am currently a senior at Garnet Valley High School and I was very nervous about applying to college and making sure I would be ready to take the steps to apply when the time came. Our college counselor and guidance team helped me with every single step. Thanks to them, I got into my top choice college. I am very proud to say I am a student at Garnet Valley School District.
