Overall, Perkiomen Valley High School was a great school that fostered their students talents and started them on their paths they would take for the rest of their lives.
Review Perkiomen Valley High School
In general there are many successful students that come out of this school prepared for college and ready to succeed. The support of great teachers, marvelous academic opportunities, and activities to participate in has led to successful students. Teachers and administration are decent, there is a great connection between students and teachers to parents, and parent involvement is certainly seen and appreciated.
My experience at Perkiomen Valley High School has been nothing but charmed. I have been fortunate to play varsity sports, participate in clubs, take challenging AP course work as well as Honor coursework, and enjoy all of it while being surrounded by supportive teachers and wonderful friends. One of my favorite experiences has been my involvement in the Link Crew Leadership Program for the past two years. It has been extremely humbling to be nominated by teachers in the role of a leader to help guide and welcome ninth grade students. In addition to that high school experience I cherish my time spent with my varsity field hockey squad over the past years. We have become a family on and off the field. Overall, I feel Perkiomen Valley High School inspired me encourage others to become more involved. My goal is to always make others feel included and to promote an atmosphere of school spirit to further promote participation on all levels. Perkiomen Valley offers a variety of activities, clubs, and sports that no matter what one's personality is or where one's interests may fall there is something for everyone here. Bottom line is one does not have to look to far to find a friend or common interest.
