My experience at Dakota Valley High School has been amazing. First of all, there are plenty of choices for academics. I also love how there are AP courses available and how we are able to take college courses online starting out junior year. There are also a plethora of options for fun clubs to join. Some examples of clubs that are available are: FBLA, HOSA, Science Olympiad, Quiz Bowl, Theater, Spanish Club and more. One thing that I absolutely love about Dakota Valley is that they are always trying to make things better for us students. For instance, we just got a brand new high school that is absolutely amazing. Also, almost every year new courses are added that we are allowed to take. Another new thing that I am excited about is that they are going to offer an internship program starting next semester. Overall, Dakota Valley High School is an absolutely amazing high school.
Review Dakota Valley High School
Dakota Valley High School is a good school. I wish it had is more college classes taught by teacher. I also wish that the school would fund for us to take college classes online rather than making us pay it ourselves.
Another thing about Dakota Valley is the diversity. The school is made up of mainly Caucasians. In total, about five percent of our school is not Caucasian. That is not an issue, but it shows how little diversity we have in our area.
The teachers do their best to help us learn, and I do think that I have great teachers. I hope that I will be prepared and have the knowledge I need to go be successful in college.
I moved to Dakota Valley High School when I was a freshman, I have always felt welcomed. Teachers are willing to go above and beyond to make sure students succeed.
