Throughout my four years at Mountain Valley High school I have made countless memories alongside some of my best friends. However, besides that I cannot think of many positive things to write about. Our current administration is not capable of running a school. A decline in standardized test scores and graduation rates can attest to that. The average quality of education a student who goes to MVHS gets is not high. Succeeding at a high level and getting ready for college is something you really have to want to do on your own because there is only a small number of AP teachers who are truly valuable.

Mountain Valley has very empathetic teachers who are ready to go above and beyond for their students. There are almost no cases of bullying. If anything needed to be changed, however, it would be the math department. The schools overall test scores on math tests are horrifying. The school is also lacking in diversity but, it cannot be helped as the area is predominantly white.
Mountain Valley High School is in a quiet area with lots of outdoor recreation. some of the teachers are really great, but some chose favorites who are treated differently than the ones who are not. Rewards and consequences depend on which category you fall in. Teachers will only help certain students, unwilling to help to better understand a subject.
