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.

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.
I like the staff at Tri-Valley they are very friendly, helping, and willing to make changes if it's possible. Not a lot of courses offered, I hope for future classes to be added.
