The San Lorenzo Valley School District has been my home for the last 13 years. From Kindergarten to now a graduating Senior, I have been apart of the San Lorenzo Valley School District family. I have been able to reach acedemic, athletic, and social success throughout my years at SLV. The staff and administration works very hard to create a safe environment that strives for student success. The envoirnemt at SLV is one like no other; the school is filled with acceptance positivity, and unity. The High School counselors and teachers are extremely helpful by giving us the tools and knowledge we need to succeed in our future pursuing a higher education. Before I entered high school, the idea of college was intimidating and unreasonble but throughout my 4 years at San Lorenzo Valley High School, I am proud to say that going to college is now going to be my reality and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support from SLVHS.
I liked my high school experience. No, I wasn't necessarily popular but I played sports and I went to prom like everyone else. My time in high school was pretty average, nothing too crazy, but I think that is what I kinda regret, that I didn't go out so much or participate in that many activities.
