Platte Valley School District Reviews

I love the fact that Platte Valley is a small town, every one knows everyone! You could come to school your first day and you would no doubt, have made friends by the end of the day without even trying. All of the students are very nice and accepting. I don't believe we have ever had a problem with bullying. Although I do wish I could change the fact that we can not take backpacks and lunch boxes into class rooms. But that is a safety issue, that is also why I rated my schools safety an entire five stars.

Platte Valley is an overall great school. The teachers are always willing to help any student, I personally feel very safe every time I walk in the doors, the sports are great, and many more. Even the students are easy to talk to and have a great sense of humor. As a senior here I am sad to leave such a great school. Ido recommend Platte Valley to anyone!
I went to platte valley since 2nd grade tell I graduate and I loved it. It's such a great school! The staff is great really supportive and caring. They care about your education but also about yor emotional well being they always make sure your are doing good mentally and emotionally. They also have great methods of teaching they are supportive but also push you to do work on your own, witch is great because is not got to always count on teachers support! Over all Platte valley is a great school. I personally would not change anything about the school.
