Grand Valley School District No. 16 Reviews

3 reviews
Hate the school, hate the teachers. The education may be higher but these idiots don't know how to teach it. Waste of my time. I tried to graduate early and they refused to help me down that path, said it wasn't possible, but lots of kids had said it was and that their older siblings had. I was THOROUGHLY unimpressed and planned to leave the school the following year.

The AP for all program gives students too much to handle so they end up failing their classes and having to retake them. It's harsh and boring up until your senior year but then things ease up a bit. The teachers are really helpful and there are hardly any instances of bullying. It's a pretty good school.
I love Grand Valley High School. I take two AP classes this year and next year i plan on taking 3 to 4 more AP classes. The teachers here are all very nice and the students get along well with each other.
