I am a former student at Sipsey Valley and I love the school academically. They are very concerned about the students and them succeeding that they have offered free tutoring from student to student. The atmosphere is great; everyone is so caring and welcoming. I have been at Sipsey Valley for about six years (middle school was attached to high school until they built a new middle school) and ,with the oppurtunity given, I would not go to another school. The school spirit has improved over the years, but it could improve some more.

Sipsey Valley was the best thing that ever happened to me! I transferred there my 10th grade year. I was prepared for college in every way, Tha k you Sipsey Valley for a job well done!
Sipsey Valley was a pretty good school. I made some good memories there. I loved a handful of teachers that work there. Some of them really care for their students and help them in any way possible. School is so much easier when you have teachers like that. If anything could change to make it better, it would be the administrators and teachers. Caring about your students and listening to them is very important in having a good school. They are the ones that see everything that happens around the school. Overall, my high school experience was pretty good though.
