Evergreen Valley is the best school in the East Side Union Highschool District. A lovely campus, and it's quite new. For new freshmen there is new a link crew program which I highly recommend. Link crew is a program of leadership sophomores, juniors and seniors who help freshmen out! So many clubs to join, so extracurricular are very fun. Sports teams are amazing and really made my school years here enjoyable. Campus is nice and clean, it's hard to see the staff but they're helpful when they're there. Teachers are kind of a lottery so it's based on luck if you get good teachers or not. Overall had an amazing four years.

From the time I've been there, my high school experience was nice. Definitely go join the yearly Battle of the Classes and Homecoming shows! You'll make quick friends when you're working for a common goal. Teachers are either a hit or a miss. Some bad, some okay, some awesome. And their quality of teaching reflects their reputation. However, as an alumni, I've heard and seen the school spirit plummet year by year, which is sad.
Although high school never lives up to its expectations of "a good time," at EV, there are some things that made my high school experience enjoyable and fun! Not every teacher is great, but if you do get to meet and get to know those incredible, down-to-earth, fun teachers, you just feel satisfied with going to school every day. Not only that, but the people I have met and friends I have created are irreplaceable and great people. EV offers many clubs that cover many interests and communities!
