Delaware Valley High School Reviews

My experience with Delaware Valley High School was definitely a positive learning experience I won't forget. Fortunately, I had amazing teachers for all four years of high school. Issues such as bullying and violence were almost nonexistent in Delaware Valley, where negativity between others was not permitted and taken care of immediately. Most of the teachers i have met or sat in class with had a complete understanding of the students and had their best interest in mind. I have had teachers who have completely changed my mindset of certain subjects positively, such as Algebra or Environmental Science. If i had the choice to go back in time and change the high school i attended for four years, i would not do so. This is because the Delaware Valley School District taught me to be the person i am today, and to carry all the knowledge and strength i have learned all my life.

Wonderful staff, terrific new addition and facilities. Academics are top notch!
Though my child is not fond of the cliquish groups, she enjoyed her teachers and the courses offered. My employer exhibits the art and photography students work once a year, and they are fantastic! we know many athletes and their parents and they are very pleased with the coaches. I feel my child is safe when she goes to school. The counseling staff has also been extremely helpul, especially communicating with us regarding prepping for college.
DV has a great academics program and also offers a variety of clubs and extracurricular activities to allow everyone to find their niche in the school community. However, they favor their sports more than the arts and academics, and it is blatantly obvious. The superintendent and the school website constantly congratulate the athletes at DV for achievements or for committing to a college. You rarely see them recognize students for their admittance into Ivy league schools or the music program for performances. The school board also made a poor choice in regards to snow days this year. Instead of applying to the state about the extra snow days due to the fact that we were in a state of emergency, the students are being forced into school for an extra week in June because "We're DV, and we're going to go 180 school days. We're not like other schools." It’s pointless to add on these days since after our final tests, most classes play games or watch movies.
