I enjoy being at Medina Valley High School because it is in small town and you know almost everyone in your school. Another great thing about MV is that the administrators and teachers are really caring towards the students. You will see them coming out to support the extracurricular activities. Also, they incorporate fun activities at school to help you strive for your goals. Medina Valley is truly a great school to be at!

In medina Valley, teachers try to accommodate your schedule and work with you. they are there all the time to help you succeed. there is no reason that you will not be able to get help. Also, the administration is amazing and create an environment that promotes a "growth mindset" for teachers and students. Lastly, I never feel unsafe. the SRO, officer Aguilar, will make his presence known throughout the school and converse with everyone!
Medina Valley high school was the school I had graduated from as well been in that district for my whole grade school experience. Its located in the small town of Castroville, Texas so, you can imagine the number of students that went there. Despite the school being small, the teachers were all very passionate and enthusiastic in what they taught and strived for all students to succeed and do better. Due to the size, the budget of the district wasn't very much but we made do and were very thankful for what we had. Since graduated in 2017 I've heard it's continuing to grow and becoming a more successful school than what it use to be.
