Del Valle has always been a safe place for me to go back to. The atmosphere is so welcoming and the people there make your high school experience unforgettable. I recently graduated a few months ago and already I find myself crawling back to this place for a sense of comfort. The teachers and staff were always so friendly and helpful in every situation. Students attending there are young open-minded individuals who go out into the real world making a big difference. Truly the best high school in El Paso!

Del Valle High School, compared to other schools within the same area and district, probably has to be the best out of all of them. The school's architecture isn't too old and is being updated whenever possible. The principal, first and foremost, looks after the well being of the students, whether through his advisory committee and most overall. The culture between all of the students is healthy, and because of our shared Mexican culture, brings us all together through thick and thin. Even those who aren't considered Hispanic are still welcomed with open arms. Overall, the health and safety of the school manages to be above standard.
My experience in Del Valle High School has overall been amazing. The principal is always involved in school activities and eager to hear opinions from students. The administration is constantly rewarding their students and reminding them that their hard work gets recognized. Not only is Del Valle known for their excellence in academics but also in athletics. This school is constantly excelling to improve in any way.
