Attending the Garnet Valley School District has been an amazing experience, and I couldn't imagine having a better education. Garnet Valley High School holds a supportive environment, with teachers, faculty, and students who are willing to go out of their way to help you. I've never experienced or witnessed any bullying or extreme negative behavior coming from other students, because of the sense of community and pride we take as Jags. If anything unfortunate were to happen to someone, the whole community would be there, supporting them. Academic wise, most of the teachers at Garnet Valley High School are well-qualified at teaching and are reasonable when it comes to grades--try your best and you will not be disregarded. Lastly, the various clubs and activities to join are great ways to meet new people and have a great time! Attending Garnet Valley High School was an amazing experience for me, and I will be sad to leave my town when I graduate in June.

My experience at Garnet Valley High School has been great! My teachers are great and they really want their students to learn. As a current high school senior, I feel very well prepared for college. I have been involved in many clubs and events through the school, and the dedication that teachers put in is amazing.
Garnet Valley has provided an excellent high school experience for me. I participate in athletics and art, as well as other clubs. I find that the academics are challenging and are preparing me for college. The teachers truly enjoy their role as educators and are always available for help, when needed. I am fortunate to have many friends from other schools in the area. Hands down, I know I am at the best school!
