Teachers and administration push their students to challenge themselves in and out of the classroom. They encourage their students to take AP classes and become involved in clubs and other activities. The school is nationally recognized for their success in academic. Faculty is supportive and helpful, however the school lacks diversity among students.

The Grain Valley community is so tight knitted that it is impossible not to feel like you know everyone. The teachers at GVHS care about not only providing you with a great education, but giving you an unforgettable high school experience and providing you with assistance and guidance even for things not related to the class. I'm so happy I spent my four years of high school here and I would do it all over again if I could!
Over all I had a good high School Experience. I felt like the students were pushed into taking the AP classes whether they were classes we really needed for our future careers or not. I also felt like teachers and administrators didn't listen to me when I tried to tell them what my educational goals were and they abosolutely did not care about my GPA. They said they cared about "preparing me for college", however I don't see how putting students in classes in which they are not properly prepared helps get them ready for college. High school should be preparing students for college...not making high school softmores take college credit classes. In my opinion high school should have transitional classes that are harder than regular high school classes yet not as challenging as actual college classes. They should also have administration that cares about not only the preparedness of the student but the ability of the student to obtain financing. GPA matters!
