Valhalla Union Free School District Reviews

Valhalla is a Hamlet, too small to even qualify as a town but it always felt like home. 45 minutes north of NYC, Valhalla's quaint charm and beauty is a perfect place to grow up. Many locally owned businesses, landmarks ( Kensico Dam), and great school districts are more than ideal. The school districts never really had bullying issues, there was a great deal of diversity but that just made everyone come together that much more. When getting ready for college, the guidance counselors devoted themselves fully to make sure each student was all set. The education and staff was absolutely fantastic. There was never a doubt that a single faculty or staff member wasn't giving their all. Sports programs were run by the best coaches and managers possible. Baseball and Softball Teams countlessly won major Championships.

A drastic change happen to me when I was just 8 years old. Growing up my parents always sent me to Catholic school, so from preschool to second grade I went to the same small school right down the road from my house. Every year I would see the same 11 kids, I only had 11 friends being that they were the only kids I saw everyday. Then one day my mom pulled me out and put me into this at the the time huge public school where there were more then 100 kids in each grade. Being so young I was terrified, I didn't know how to make new friends and I didn't know who I wanted to be friends with because there were so many options. Lucky as time went on, Valhalla School became my friend. Teachers and students were always looking out for each other. I realized that you were never alone because someone was always right there to guide you. Everyone wanted what was best for each other, and 10 years later that still remains the same. I couldn't picture myself anywhere else. Valhalla is my home.
At Valhalla High School, you get the perfect mix of excellent academics and electives. At Valhalla, the teachers are very helpful when it comes to making sure you understand the topics and lessons. They will stay after school to help you if you need it.
The music and art department are big parts of Valhalla. I take part in all of the music programs and the teachers are outstanding. They are very caring people who always mix fun into their lessons while learning.
Sports are also big parts of Valhalla. We have football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, bowling, golf, track and more. Participating in the soccer program was the most beneficial part of my high school career. It has taught me leadership and sportsmanship as well as having a determination to win and achieve goals I never would have reached on the field, in the classroom, and at home.
