I love the teachers! Many of them are involved and sincerely care about their students. Though we don’t have the greatest resources, the teachers do there best to get across the full spectrum of each course. The staff are all very concerned as well. They do everything to keep the students safe. There have been some changes and new rules that others may criticize, but they are doing it for the students’ well being. Our district has had bad publicity, but I personally believe the reason for that is because it is what people seem to be interested in hearing. There are many bright and determined students, including myself, that are planning for the next crucial steps in their lives to become successful.

Espanola Valley was a safe place for me. I’d go to school with no worries of wether or not I’d be home after. Although Espanola does have its critics as well as some bad reputation talks, for me it was always a good experience. I was able to walk peacefully to and from classes. Teachers were always instructing us in a respectful manner.
This school offers just what students need in their high school experience, with supportive and caring faculty. My experience as a Sundevil was great, I believe my time there has set me up for success. I do believe that there could be a wider variety of elective programs offered to students.
