I did not mind Pequea. It was not the best school but it also was not the worst. I would have liked to see more college preparedness happen. Also, I wish they had not given out laptops. I prefer pen and paper when learning in school. Pequea was a decent school. It had its flaws like any other school but overall was not a bad school.

The school's music program is phenomenal, and it is what really made my high school experience so great. I was very involved in both the choral and band programs, and I would participate in county, district, regional, and state festivals, which (especially for chorus), I accredit to the good teaching I received. My music friends were family, especially the Chamber Singers, which was a special organization to be involved in for me. The memories I made singing with that group at so many different places (including Disney and Toronto) are some that will last me a lifetime.
I loved the flexible schedule and different opportunities offered at Pequea Valley. For example, you could participate in a work study, internship, dual enrollment, CTC, or free periods.
