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.
Going to Pojoaque Valley High was a good high school and i enjoyed it. The school gives the students many opportunities to enjoy and use them as advantages for college readiness. There are many resources that are available for the students can use. At the school there is no diversity so everyone is welcomed there is no judgement. Academics are good in some classes but if really want good classes you have look at certain teachers.
