Huron Valley Schools Reviews
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!!
Huron Valley is your average school district, except with less money. In 5th grade, there was a chance the middle school I was planning to go to would be closed due to lack of money. Thankfully, my middle school was saved by one vote, and a different school got closed. The buildings are old and worn down, but the community seems nice enough.
