Tri-Valley School District Reviews

Tri-Valley High School is a small school, so teachers love to help. There isn't a variety of extra classes, so you will see a lot of students taking dual credit classes online. The school expects good attendance and to always improve the grades you have. The classes aren't hard, but attendance is a huge part of it. Tri-Valley only has one advanced class, and it is human anatomy. This recent year Tri-Valley has added a few more classes to their schedules, which include, creative writing, novels, ACT prep class, studio arts, and a media class. Personal finance is a class that is required by seniors to graduate. It might be the most important class as well.

Loved my education from Tri-Valley. I had awesome relationships with my teachers. A school in a cornfield very safe. Convenient among towns. Teacher do there duty to educate students. Highly professional yet caring teachers who take their job seriously. The school pays very much attention to safety. Always positive learning environment. Decent music program. Fast growing population base.
I am very grateful to have gone to Tri-Valley High School. I've had great experiences in and out of the classroom and I'm very lucky to have taken as many college classes as I have. The teachers and administrators are so involved and supportive of their students and they genuinely care and want us to succeed in life. Our school isn't very big so we get the chance to be recognized and remembered by the staff for years. I'm proud to be a Tri-Valley student and I can't wait to see what's next for me in the coming years.
