Platte Valley High School is a small public school in Kersey, Colorado. I had the choice to attend Platte Valley or a bigger school in Greeley. I wanted to be able to be a part of student council, various clubs, and sports while still having time to spend with my friends. What made me decide to go to Platte Valley was the "home town" feel. The teachers and students were very kind and welcoming and I knew that I had found the right school to spend my next four years. I have since enjoyed becoming the vice president of the student council and qualifying for nationals in FBLA. I love being able to know every student in the school and I have grown tremendously as a person and student. The teachers go above and beyond for their students and I would not have wanted to attend a different school.

I have been going to Platte Valley since preschool and I am a junior now. I have honestly enjoyed all my years in Platte Valley. There are quite a few sports programs, clubs like FFA, FBLA, Brain Bowl, and so on, with an overall friendly environment! I am a little bias because I have only known Platte Valley, but it really is a great school.
Great. I found places I could be interested in and scholarships that will help me get there. Now, I've applied for several and have opened my mind up to going to different universities across the country.
