Lots of involvement from students and teachers due to it being so small. Close relationships made between studemts and faculty resulting in a better learning experience overall. Great experience here!

I liked the addition of dual credit classes being given as an option to juniors and seniors. Tri-Valley also has a wide range of electives for students to choose from when deciding on classes. They also have many activities for students to choose from. The school lunch program is not good at all. There is very little variety and the salad bar seems to get certain things pulled from it every month. We often times have the same thing every week, for example some sort of taco every Tuesday. Although Tri-Valley offers dual credit classes it seems many of the students are not college ready. Another thing that I did not like was that there was not a weighted GPA.
The staff at Tri-Valley is wonderful. Teachers are always willing to help out where ever you need help. The school over all is nice and up to date. Athletics are awesome to be in at this school. Tri-Valley never skips a beat when it comes down to us. We are the future and they know that so they do there best to help us get to where we want to go. The food could be a little better but it isn't completely dissatisfying. Our facilities are kept clean and updated. We actually just got a new track and field no too long ago. Every student is willing to help other students out and is very nice towards one another.
