Overall, my experience at Great Valley was smooth and exciting. I met some of my best friends and had the opportunity of working with highly educated teachers. Throughout my years at Great Valley, I learned how to work efficiently and be organized. One of my favorite things about the high school were the English classes. The English teachers really do prepare you for college when it comes to writing. So far I have received great words from my college professors on my writing skills. Socially, it is quite a diverse place that has a variety of opportunities such as sports and clubs to make sure that each student is a part of the school community.

As someone who has been in Great Valley School District for 12 years, I will say this school is much better than others in the area. Once you sit down and think about the good aspects of GVHS, you become more grateful for being at such a district. The school is so diverse in many ways such as a diverse racial community, diverse group of people in the LGBTQ+ community... GVHS is always willing to accept other people. The teachers always make sure students feel welcome and make sure they understand the material being taught. As I get ready for college, the counselors help out with any planning and definitely deserve appreciation and recognition for being so amazing in the college readiness category. I believe there needs to be change to the awareness of bullying. Bullying is still prevelant at GVHS. Besides this, I have made many memories here and I hope GVSD stays this way for years to come.
I like how the school is preparing me really well for college but it can get too intense at times. There is so much pressure that you have to get all A's and you have to take all AP and Honor's classes to get into college, but you don't. But I feel like the majority of teachers in the high school do care about there students and how they are doing not just in school but also mentally and physically out of school.
