Pojoaque High School Reviews
My experience at Pojoaque Valley high school has been exceptional! When I arrived at Pojoaque Valley high school, I was welcomed in a very nice manner. Pojoaque High school has a program called Link Crew that specifically helps freshmen adjust to the new environment. What I really enjoyed about this high school was that I was encouraged to join extracurricular activities. This helped me build friendships and confidence within myself for school. Every teacher I have had always gives their best effort to their students to provide an excellent education. Personally I really enjoyed that none of the teachers made us learn only off the book, they incorporate different strategies to help students engage in learning.
I have attended Pojoaque Valley High School for four years now. My experience going here has been for the most part pretty average. I have had some pretty excellent teachers who I learned vital information from and some who weren't as great. Many extracurriculars, including sports and clubs, are offered, which really helps improve student relations and dynamics. These activities offer much experience to students as well as opening them up to new things. Something I would change about my high school is the organization and communication between students and the administration. When issues arise, it is often unclear from both sides how to resolve and prevent these problems.
As a junior at Pojoaque high school enrolled in multiple AP classes and taking part in numerous extracurriculars, I have observed this school to be one of the most diverse and unique schools in the state of New Mexico. Not only does Pojoaque offer a wide variety of classes, it also offers many opportunities as far as extracurriculars go. By providing these opportunities, students are able to discover who they are and how they can contribute to society after high school. This isn't to say that there is no room for improvement. When it comes to rigour, I feel that Pojoaque does not adequately prepare its students for college or the real world. However, I feel that my overall experience at Pojoaque has been beneficial to the development of my character and my knowledge.
