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.
Delaware Valley High was an overall good experience for me. I attended my classes and earned high grades. I participated in the music program, specifically the orchestra, and it was great! My teacher, Mr. Swinehart, was a great teacher, unfortunately currently retired, and he urged me on to participate in concerts and auditions. I took AP Classes and my Calculus teacher taught me well and I passed the exam. My experience was good however I've heard lots of things from my friends and think it would be good to change. First of all, some students were stupid enough to bring alcohol and cigarettes into school and made the rules harsher and stricter. We aren't allowed to carry around water bottles because some kid in the past had put alcohol and drank it during school. There are some students who doesn't care about school at all and play around too. Our football team, I heard, is quite good.
