Sesser-Valier Community Unit School District No. 196 Reviews

3 reviews
This school cares far more about who your parents are and who you're related to rather than your knowledge. If your parents are higher up in the school foodchain, you're guaranteed to receive favouritism. Art gets pushed to the curb due to sports. Many teachers have a religious bias even though it's a public school.

The environment is decent, but many people here are quite petty. Sports are not very successful and academics are not good at all
S-V is full of nasty snitches. Do not go here. You can't do anything anymore without getting snitched on because some people need to get others in trouble to get satisfaction for themselves and that's really nasty. I also wish I could give negative stars for the administration.
