Any experience is what you choose to make of it. In SVHS, of course, much room can be made for improvement. Unfortunately, there isn't a wide range of academic programs to choose from; your schedule can only be so diverse. Extracurricular activities are constantly on the chopping block. Areas that are in constant use i.e. the auditorium and bathrooms are in poor shape..Due to a lack of proper funding, we struggle. However, in the same light, it is here at SVHS where you are sure to find some of the most innovative minds and passionately-driven spirits. The staff and administration are constantly working towards benefiting the students. They meet the students where they're at and work to multiply their skill set. They give their students their BEST efforts. And they're not in the business of giving up easily. The SVHS staff, administration and students alike are constantly working towards becoming the best versions of themselves.

My experience at Spring Valley High school is not so bad. What I really like and enjoy about being a current senior at Spring Valley High is that I am open to many opportunities of clubs and activities open to many diverse students and grade levels. Something I would prefer to change about the school would be our school ground choice of food in the lunchroom, and our safety as students in the school area. There is an adequate lack of respect for us as students and for teachers as well. There is a lack of protection that most security's at our school do not provide for us students. There should be better planned strict rules set out specifically for the students, that the students will be able and understand to comprehend and accept to go by the rule that would not be able under any circumstance be tolerated to be broken.
Spring Valley opened my eyes on diversity. I believe no one in the school is afraid to be themselves. We have a wide range of classes that enhance students to be greater and also for them to find talents they can evolve from. Spring Valley adminstration though sometimes maybe very frustrating, they always pull through with wonders to teach the student about rising about their sircumstances. Over the years our school has made a name for itself between our sports program aswell as our drama and art. Spring Valley Highschool has a widespread design for indulging in a students interest and finding out how they can develope the student into what they want to make out of their interest. Like me for example this year I picked up on Graphic Design , it’s a continuation of computer design that I took the year before. My love for Architecture has widen ever since. I’ve learned to successfully use Adobe Flash Photoshop aswell as AutoCad.
