I wa fortunate to have great teachers during my 4 years. They were all approachable for extra help! They offer many trips abroad, not just language classes. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Ecuador, the Galapagos, IceLand and now New Zealand, and Hawaii! I love
the diversity and math courses I wish the theatre budget was higher.

Academically, it is a very good school and so are the teachers who work there. However, there is not much diversity at all. Additionally, the administration does not show much support for students who participate in activities outside of the school. In my freshman year when I told my guidance counselor that I competed in Taekwondo, he told me I should cut back on that a little and start playing a real sport, a school sport. I also told him I played piano. Again, he told me I should play an instrument with the school. Lastly, when I said I volunteered for the hospital, he asked why I didn't volunteer for the school. Whenever, I go to travel for a competition, the administration will mark me as unexcused, even when the national team wrote them a letter about my upcoming absence.
Pascack Valley High School is a school like no other. Never once have I felt like an outsider or like someone that does not belong. Not only do the students display a positive attitude when it comes to involvement, but the teachers and all of the staff do too. Our education has prepared me so much for college and the resources available have helped as well. Each year of high school the students have been able to take home a Mac laptop for the entire year. This opened a variety of opportunities of learning and made it much easier when it came to research and projects. Despite everything so positive about my school, the one aspect that needs some work is our student diversity. Pascack Valley is located in a predominitely white are, so I have not got a chance to get invovled and know others that come from a different background than myself.
