The school is extremely small for the students and teachers that it holds, we have “drifting teachers” that share classrooms with other teachers. The school isn’t the cleanest, we have roaches. I stopped eating the schools lunch the beginning of my Freshman year because there’s really nothing I eat. Our school is low funded, what funds we do get goes to sports; not new books, not for learning purposes, not even for another security guard, we’ve had at least 3 threats this year.

Many of the teachers are great but they lack freedom and resources. The class choices are pretty good. The school is obsessed with their losing sports teams; the basketball team won a championship years ago. The zero-tolerance policy, for bullying, is a lie. The administration barely acknowledges the students. At graduations they often mess up people’s ranking (e.g., cum laude, summa cum laude), and are not apologetic. Students have shared their frustration with not feeling ready for college. This school is not terrible but it needs some work.
Midland Valley high school is not very fondly spoken about by the students and the parents. It is just known for being full of "valley" people, a derogatory term that our school has positively turned around by the slogan "Valley Strong." The school is very dirty in my opinion. The bathrooms make me not want to use them. There needs to be an upgrade in the facilities, structure, lockers, desks, etc. Everything looks old except for the new cafeteria installments. They seem to push people towards athletics and put more money into the sports than into the academics, fine arts, and other such areas. It seems as if the athletics is the only pride of the school. They seem to only care about how our school is viewed--the statistics. They don't seem to care about the overall wellness of the students. It's only about the statistics and how we make the school viewed as.
