Midland Valley High was a wonderful place to get by high school education. They encouraged me to challenge myself in my classes, which helped prepare me for college. I'm glad Midland Valley offered a wide variety of AP classes because that experience helps me right now in my freshman classes. The teaching environment was fantastic. I always felt like the teachers truely cared about having their students learn and grow. Although the school is due for some expanding, and renovation, the students, staff, and faculty truly made my high school years a memorable one.
Review Midland Valley High School
Midland Valley is a very successful school when it comes to academics. There are many teachers willing to help the students. If a student is looking for a school that is greatly involved in sports then this is the place. However, I think it would be great for the school to become more involved in activities that aren't to do with sports but other forms of expression and creativity. For example--theater should be taken more seriously because some people aren't very good at sports and have to find other ways to express themselves. The school is great about giving the students the help they need, but many introverts and quiet kids are overlooked for the more outgoing and extroverted students. Overall, there is amazing academic support which is important for any school and the bullying within the school is left to a minimum.
The school is way too small for a number of kids that go here. It's really meant to only hold about 800 students(if I'm correct) but we have about 1,500 enrolled currently. Several classrooms don't have enough desks and probably won't ever receive enough as the year progresses. The school could be a lot better but because of ridiculous rules set by the Aiken County School District, we are required to waste 50 minutes of the school day once a week, to do an advisory class, in which we watch random videos that in no way help us get a better education or succeed in life. Even the teachers do not of approve of the advisory program. Favoritism is shown towards athletic teams and students on those teams and other programs such as Band, Chorus, etc, have to fight to keep their programs alive and barely ever recognized that they even exist. The dress code set by the county was once respectable but now is too invasive and controlling, especially of girls. Example, students are not allowed to dye their hair, at ALL, are only allowed to wear one bracelet on an arm, and cannot wear a scarf to school.
