Espanola Valley High School Reviews
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.
I can't really compare EVHS to any other high school because it's the only one I've ever attended but I do believe that we could overall be a better school if there was communication between the students and the factuality. The school also has a tendency to not go through with lots of projects or activities that are introduced. Also, staff does not heavily inforce any of the rules that are set in place until late May when it is too late as it is nearing the end of the school year.
What I liked about Espanola Valley High School was the teachers. All the teachers that I have had while attending this school are the greatest people I have ever met. The teachers I had were considetate,understanding and try to push the students to do better for themselves. They were also very real with their students. They didn't try and sugar-coat how life is going to be after High School which I respect as an individual. What I think they can improve on is having a bigger selection of classes as well as more Interactive activities for students and teachers to create a better sense of community. The counselors should be able to provide information that the students need to know in order to graduate successfully in hopes of going to college. I feel like they also should provide actual teachers to certain classes that went to school for that specific type of class they will be teaching.
