Huron Valley Schools Reviews
There are many things that I liked about Huron valley schools. I enjoy the people and staff of Huron Valley everyone is always helpful and friendly. It's easy to feel comfortable and meet new people. Another thing that I liked is the student involvement in sports. I played a couple sports and I enjoyed going to sporting events. There were always huge students sections cheering the teams on and it really created a fun environment. One thing I think that could improve is the diversity, there is not much diversity within this school district or students tend to stick to one group of friends.
Overall, HVS has a basic curriculum that could be changed to have more interesting activities for the students. School safety also needs to be improved as the enterance of the school needs to change. Strangers should not be able to enter the school just because they have valid identification. A system should be created so that any person that wants to get into the school needs to have a special ID or be told to come to the main office. Huron Valley is a good district that could use building, safety, and curriculum updates.
As you can see from the academic scores, HVS places very little emphasis on academics. There are minimal programs in place for high achievers and college prep is not emphasized. Lakeland High School seems to use all resources on dealing with drug problems and under-achieving students. Counselors do not meet with students on a regular basis, and are no help with gathering college information. Other than College Night (when kids can walk to multiple booths and pick up pamphlets, the kids are only exposed to community colleges. Nobody here is aiming for a great academic experience, and kids never come first!!
