Great Valley High School Reviews

One thing I liked about Great Valley High School was the education. The quality of education was especially good because the teachers always worked to push kids to try their hardest. The reason Great Valley has always been ranked at the top was for the quality of education that it provides to their students. For example, they always prepare their students for college and help is always provided to those who need it. One thing that Great Valley High School can work onis diversity within the community. Something as simple as making clubs for people in the minority and to help them feel included is a good way at spreading diversity. I have been a victim of much racism while I went to the school because something as simple as a lack of diversity was seen and diversity was not very common. If Great Valley keeps doing what they are doing in terms of education and creates a nice environment for those in the minority, this school will be even better.

It's a pretty awesome community! The academics are good as well as the people there, including the teachers and other talented students that you meet. Let's get better!
The Great Valley School District is more than amazing. I am a second year College student and when I look back at my times in high school, I am very grateful. I had some of the most driven and dedicated teachers that wanted to make sure I was prepared for College. The school also makes sure to allow the students to have time to enjoy themselves with numerous clubs and sports. It is becoming more diverse each year and really makes sure to make everyone feel equal. Because of Great Valley, I have become a hard working, organized, and studious student.
