I came from a small school, when I moved to Valley Center I felt exposed to a completely different lifestyle. The offers of sports and academics is so much greater for their students. I would however, like most schools in Kansas, wish to see a variety in diversity!

Valley Center is an amazing place with great people. I’ve made great friends, their clubs could be more diverse and involved. I think that Valley Center is a very intelligent school with many teachers and classes that set you up for college. I would recommend better school spirit, and diversity.
some things I like about valley center is a lot of the teachers actually care about you. and they want to help you succeed and graduate. I also like how the school handles with clubs and sports. They also do a good job on breaking down on bad stuff going around in the school. Also, the janitors do a great job at setting up activities and cleaning up after the students. some things they could work on would be getting more teachers like the ones I previously talked about. They need to get rid of the teachers who just tell you what the works about and expect you to get it right the bat. students typically need help and explanation. The school could also get better at showing school spirit at more than just football games. Also, they could break down on the bullying of kids who are "weird" or not like them. These are something's I think Valley center is good at and some things we are bad at.
