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.
Review Delaware Valley High School
Most teachers are friendly and willing to work with students outside of class. Many teachers who teach higher level courses are very knowledgeable, but some lack knowledge about their chosen subject. Generally, teachers are fairly effective in communicating course material to students, but grading is all over the place, depending on the teacher and class. Some teachers definitely play favorites, and some classes have multiple teachers all grading differently. Teachers are normally pretty interested in students and try to get to know them, but some can be cold and unfriendly. Class sizes range from ridiculously small to larger than they really should be, depending on the course. Language classes tend to be pretty small and manageable, but second semester PE classes are always huge, and English and Science classes tend to suffer the most from overloading. Overall, decent teachers, with some below average, and some that are absolutely fantastic. It really is what you make of it.
The extracurricular are very diverse. Here there is a lot of different people with different interests. We have clubs that range from cup stacking, fly fishing, gay/ straight alliance, to snowboarding club. If there are students who are passionate about the club it is very well constructed. Along with this it is very easy to create a club if there is not one created. The teachers that supervise these clubs are very interested and committed to them. It sometimes seems that sometimes they are even more passionate about the club than their teaching. Clubs here are very well advertised too so everyone can know about them when ever they would like to know. They are used as an after school activity here that can be as long as 3 hours if wanted. The clubs are able to fundraise and get financial support from the school to go on trips. Some clubs even do trips on weekends if they do choose.
