Valley Central School District Reviews

I am a senior at valley central high school, over the course of my four years attending the school, I’d have to say it hasn’t been the worse of times. Coming into the school the atmosphere was very calm, there wasn’t any type of special cliques people are In, bullying wasn’t really a problem, fights have barley broken out, and the staff there is very kind. I have made great connections w/ majority of the teachers, they’re down to earth, and really have a grasp on what’s going on in a teenagers life. So frankly, I’d say valley central is a good school, and I’d most likely send my kids there if I’m able to.

I love Valley Central! This school has some amazing teachers that have gotten me through some tough times in my life and who have been there for me through out my high school career. The teachers really put in the time and effort to make their students succeed and achieve their goals. However what I would like to see change is for Valley Central to put more money into their music department because it would really help the department succeed more and repair and replace old equipment.
I like that Valley Central has a fair amount of students and teachers and doesn’t feel too populated. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of crowded classrooms. I like walking down the hallway being able to see familiar faces everyday. The same can be said about the friendly hall monitors and my teachers, including teachers that I’ve had in previous years. My teachers have always been able to assist me when I need their help as long as I reach out to them.
