Silver Valley High School Reviews
Silver Valley High School is located in the remote desert town of Yermo, California. Its quite a small school with only some 380 students, and it shows with the mediocre level of after school clubs, college courses, and campus food. Although upon first sight it evokes groans and moans from incoming students (mainly military), Silver Valley sets itself apart from other schools with the sense of unity it creates. Unlike any other high school I've attended. Silver Valley feels like a family; students all know one another, administrators know each student by name, and the faculty does everything in their power to prepare their students for college. In that aspect, I'm very grateful for Silver Valley.
The teachers that have taught me in my 3 years of attending, have really helped me. They really care about your well being and future. The teachers work with each other to ensure each student isn't overburdened with too many assignments in one night; but they also push us students to do our very best in stressful situations.
I went to Silver Valley High School for my senior year of high school. the school is small which creates a comfortable atmosphere but among the students there is a lot of gossip and bullying. There was very little diversity due to it being such a small school. We had resources such as computer labs, iPad, textbooks, and that of the such. The teachers (most of them) were very wonderful and you could tell they loved their jobs. Silver Valley did not prepare students for college as readily as they could or should have in my opinion. I would advise any parents and students attending the school to stay on top of college applications and participate in volunteer activities, sports, and extra curricular actives as much as possible. Students will be ostracized if they do not participate in the school activities. Overall, the experience was almost painless, but also not very memorable. I do love the staff there and I hope all my old teachers are doing well.
