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!

I moved to Medina Valley my sophomore year. I’ve always been a very shy person but when i got to this school, i immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. People were super sweet and helpful, my sophomore year was great and i loved this school better than the one i went to before. One thing that also caught my attention, was our school spirit, it was amazing seeing how active the students and staff were in the school. I am going on to be a senior on my third year at this school, and they discipline very hard here which is great because students will know the consequences of their actions before. One thing i would change are the teachers, they pick and choose favorites.
The school itself is ok not anything special the administration seems to only really care about Id’s, or if they see a single hair on your lip, and when to assign Saturday school. As for the teachers some are great other are garbage and genuinely don’t seem to care about actually teaching us the curiculeum. The kids for the most part are ok there are some rude kids in every class but pretty much everyone is chill. As for the curriculum it’s outdated when it comes to using technology. The older teachers and administrators borderline demonize it aside from cyber patriots. As for sports they only REALLY care about football it’s rare you’ll catch an administrator at a basketball game or golf and the other sports programs such as basketball in the off season have 1 coach for 35-50 students it’s frankly ridiculous. Overall the schools ok but there are definitely better options
