My experience at Perkiomen Valley High School has been wonderful. I have gone to this school for all four years of my high school journey and have made lifelong friendships. The atmosphere at PV is unbelievable and the school spirit is always off the charts, we even had the best student section in southeast Pennsylvania! PV is a safe school and if issues arise, they are solved within minutes. The teachers are amazing, always willing to assist and one can really tell that they want the students to succeed. Overall, Perkiomen Valley high school is one of the best schools in the area.

Perkiomen Valley High School is definitely one of the better schools in the area.
The majority of teachers want to see their students grow and succeed. They make an effort to know their students. Some of the staff input minimum effort into their classes while others drown students in "busy work".
Overall, the students are great. During spirit week, the school is buzzing with energy. The student section (and football) is one of the school's proud highlights.
The school administration is weak. I personally have not once ever seen one of the principals EVER interact with the students. Sometimes they send out surveys, asking for the students' opinions. We feel as if they don't listen to our concerns. There have been a few occasions when administration should have called off school for bad weather and they didn't. Accidents ensued from the icy roads and some bus riders didn't get home until 8pm.
The cafeteria is making an effort to improve.
Overall, a great school with a few weak points.
I enjoy the amount of activities possible within our high school. Students are able to join any sport and club they would like to, and if it doesn't exist, they can start it up with a group of friends. An issue with our school is definitely the lack of adult leadership. The school administration, not including the teachers, rarely acknowledge the students. Sometimes they'll sit in on a class of mine throughout the year, but nothing seems to change. They advocate for change, but we still have poor school security and athletic facilities for our athletes.
