Grain Valley R-V School District Reviews

Throughout my high school experience, my school grew and developed vastly. Construction was happening and by the time I graduated, the school contructed multiple new hallways. I think this was a good decision because it provided more space for students, especially in the science wings (new lab tables and equipment). Also throughout my high school experience, Grain Valley Schools implemented technology into the curriculum. By the time I was a high school Senior, every student was issued a Chromebook for the entirety of the school year. . Many students ended up taking notes on computers, inevitably leading to distractions. Studies have proven that technology and multitasking decreases long term memory and can even cause one's hippo-campus to shrink. Although technology is resourceful, looking back on my High School experience at Grain Valley, I wish that technology was more limited.

I really liked how much the teachers supported your learning and well being. I liked how you always had someone to talk to and if you needed academic help, students or teachers would be there for you. There was tutoring for any class and also ACT prep classes. I liked the block scheduling because it gave students more time to get caught up on homework. I loved the vibe and safe environment that GV has. I am a part of the band program, I met many friends there and we were also very successful. I would like to see Grain Valley have better food options and also more clubs. They need to have healthier and tastier food options for students, and promote nutrition.
Grain Valley High School was a nice environment for high schoolers. Now that I’m currently an alumni and enrolled in college, I see that there is some room for improvement in teaching high school students about diversity. College is a very culturally diverse place. In order to adapt to college successfully, it is important that students are aware of cultural differences. Other than diversity, I wish GVHS had more dual credit courses. It seems that compared to other students at college I came in with a very minimal amount of credits. Overall, Grain Valley does a nice job of making students feel safe and gives great opportunity to expand your learning.
