Great Valley School District Reviews

Great Valley School District is absolutely incredible in terms of facilities, the caliber of teachers, and the academic excellence. However in terms of student culture there is a poor sense of unity and/or school pride. I wish the immense amount of red tape for starting clubs and extracurricular activities was less prevalent as well, but all in all, you can really make the most of it!

Great Valley School District helped me break out of my shell and helped me develop a multitude of skills and characteristics such as: leadership, citizenship, community activism, professional development and phenomenal study skills.
The schools constantly provided a safe learning environment in which bullying was not tolerated and counseling was accessible whenever students needed it. The teachers and faculty were also incredibly encouraging and served as great role models.
I love the teachers and staff at this school, but the school has terrible kids who misbehave and ruin it for the good kids! Also the school is more concerned about "education" than the safety of the students! Overall, the school is okay...
