Great Valley is a close knit and welcoming school environment. Never once have I experienced bullying or any kind of discrimination for that matter. Everybody motivates each other through all their academic endeavors and genuinely wants to see their peers succeed. Athletics are awesome, as are the arts. I would say the arts department NEEDS more funding, though. It's a worthwhile investment.
Review Great Valley High School
I had a good experience at the high school, however I was part of the minority of students who did. Many teachers have a specific style and not all students can learn well. The school will be getting worse in the future as they are taking out "accelerated" courses leaving only standard and honors courses.
Half of the teachers care so so so much about their students, while the other half couldn't care less. Student services and the mental health programs are useless, but academics are strong.
