I loved it here at Pojoaque Valley High School. The Staff are amazing and the students are diverse and caring. I feel collage ready and prepared for what life has to give. I’m glad for my experiences at Pojoaque! The food could be better and the school could be cleaner but overall it’s a great school. I recommend it and I hope to have my children attend school here!

At Pojoaque Valley High School I liked the friendly and welcoming environment. I would change the level of academic challenge at Pojoaque Valley, and increase the amount of clubs and extracurricular activities that are offered. In addition to this I would change the enthusiasm of the environment and get students and staff more involved.
At Pojoaque Valley High school i like being able to chose the classes we need. I love how the teachers help us out with anything we need in order to succeed. I like how any faculty members are concerned if we look sad. i like the lunch's there, there not that bad and there not so great either. I like how we have a choice between two choices of what we want to eat for lunch and that there is not a choice for one. I love how the counselors are concerned in any bad grades or behavior, its very nice of them to help us out.
