Valders High School Reviews

Valders is very small, so its very easy to get to know all the teachers and classmates. There are very personal relationships formed between students of any age, and even between teacher and student. Many of the teacher make as much time as they can for their students in order to help the ones that are struggling. A lot of the teachers were very good at answering questions in a way that didn't make the student feel stupid or completely lost. If there was one thing about Valders that I would change, I would make more advanced courses. There are few AP level courses, which makes sense for the smaller number of students that go there, but upper level students often lack the stimulation needed and get bored easily by classes that are too easy for them.

If I were to put it in one word, I'd say it was - interesting. Throughout high school, I was the only Mexican girl out of the five in our ENTIRE school. It's a small school in the middle of nowhere in a small town. Anytime there was drama, new kid, cops, it was a big deal. Nothing much ever happened there. I could say high school could've been better, but that be a lie. I left there happy, even though school got canceled due to COVID-19. If there were something to be changed, it would be the walls. Yeah, there are some cute colors here and there, but they're so many white walls that I feel like it's a nonstop walk.
I always feel welcomed as soon as I walk into the front doors. The teachers will never turn you away if you have any questions on homework, both inside and outside of class. It is an overall friendly environment, but as all schools do, it has its downsides. For example, not all students get along very well. There are a scarce few that can get along with everyone, including myself. There are also some student that don't agree with some of the teachers' teaching methods. All in all, it's not a half-bad school.
