Sun Valley High School Reviews

A small school in Delaware County PA. Some teachers make the class an enjoyable place to learn, others make it the worst. Most of the teachers here sit in their chairs on their phones and just assign lessons. Basically having an online course with the added stress of a teacher. While others have amazing teaching styles. They actually each and help and want to see you grow as a student. Some sports are ok. Yet everything revolves around the football team. Overall average school.

It was a good school with an abundance of resources for students. However, I would have liked to see more funding for music and the arts (no instruction for string instruments or orchestra), and more college preparatory programs to inform students during the college application process.
During my time at SVHS I experienced a few academic and social challenges. Through the help and support of teaches, counselors and classmates I was able to work through and rise above any difficulties that came along. My teachers and counselors were all very committed to SVHS and the success of the students.
