Tri-Valley High School Reviews

I would say that this school is overall good. We don't have very many choices of classes to take, but the staff try to make the most of it by trying to add more selections. We don't have a lot of money for the school and it doesn't help that we don't have a lot of people. The students don't care, though, because everyone has a great time. Because it is a small school, everyone knows everyone, which is a great experience to have. A school like this isn't an easy one to find in big cities, so if you would wish to go to one, move to the country and gear up your horses! I would say its good to have everybody's back when you need it. Making friends is easy because everyone is nice and tries to help in need. I like this school, other than some of the classes we don't have, and would choose this over a couple other ones.

Tri-Valley is in a smaller community which means that everyone is connected. The staff is very helpful and is willing to take the time to help you. They are also easy to work with and are understanding. A few things I would change are the food and facilities. The food is very hit or miss. Some days the food is spectacular and other days the food is hardly edible. The facilities are average. The gym is slightly out of date. The locker rooms are also out of date.
I love the size of the school. There are not too many people. If you need extra help with classes, the majority of the teachers are happy to help. The science classes offered here are very good. The English program at Tri-Valley High School, however, is not very good. The arts program is not good at Tri-Valley.
