Pequea Valley High School Reviews

I loved the fact that each student received their own laptop. I transferred over from a school that had the same amount of online work but any student without a computer or access to one was SOL. With my own laptop, I was able to excel in my studies and receive straight A's my junior year. I met friends who accepted me as I was and we are still friends even though we are no longer in high school. A funny thing about this school is that the teacher who taught me algebra in my old school actually transferred over to this school. I happened to be in her algebra 2 class and she made me fall in love with math again. Then I went into pre-calculus and was not so in love with it anymore. I also loved my honors English teacher, he always made the class laugh and encouraged us all to have fun but work while doing it. Overall my experience at Pequea Valley School District was a great one and I am truly grateful that I transferred to it.

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.
