The school itself was pretty good. I was extremely involved in the volleyball program there since I was a meer freshaman. I absolutely loved the sport. My junior year I tried out and made the team but we had a new varsity coach. Throughout the season I was only allowed 2 plays of play time per match. I asked him why, I was practicing just as hard and had ball control like no one else. He explained to me that I was too short to be any good and so he sat me the rest of the season. He looked shocked when he saw me play for my club team at the Far Westerns Conference and saw that I was the starting setter and played the entire match, every match!

My experience at North Valleys High was quite fun, especially during my Senior year! I wish I can keep it like this for a while more but I must move on! Having to choose a class from your favorite hobbies is extremely fun! During my years, I can say I learned things that I haven't before! Even with friends, being able to share and experience the moment of your life being an adult soon! Teachers are fun and amazing, bringing the fun out of the boring assignments (for the most part).
This school is absolutely amazing. I've never had teachers so willing to connect and care about not only the academic success of students but also their general well-being, mental health, and personal/social growth. I'm in the honors program and the teachers here have been like the parents I never got to have. They hold so much compassion for students and genuinely want to see them do well. They go out of their way to check-in with students and ensure that they are doing well outside of school too. The staff also takes the time to learn and recognize students' names and their achievements, and they work hard to provide a safe, tight-knit community. The passion for student success, both emotionally and academically, is unlike any other school I've ever been to.
