Valdosta High School Reviews
Valdosta High School has been improved recently. In 2018, a state of the art high school was created. It is beautiful! This high school is nice. However, there are some downfalls that come with it. There are many strict policies that are in place, which are unnecessary. For example, when entering and exiting the buildings, there are specific steps to how you must do so. Also, they are really strict on not having any phones. Aside from these minor inconveniences, most of the staff are friendly and willing to help the students. Valdosta High School offers many opportunities to students, too! In academics, they provide honors, AP, and IB courses. There are also a variety of clubs such as, BETA, HOSA, Key Club, FBLA, etc. Sports are also really big in this small city. The main sport is football. The Valdosta Wildcat Football team has the most wins in the nation. Other sports include basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, swim, etc. Overall, this is a quality school!
Overall, the school is seen as a family to me. Everytime I enter the building I feel welcomed and uplifted. The school has an outstanding academic opportunity for those that are interested. The staff are friendly and rules are clear and up-to-date. It's not hard to miss when you're away from it. The love and support from this school is one to remember by many. I love and will always love Valdosta High School!
The school itself is great and it offers many academic paths for students (AP classes, IB, Dual Enrollment). However, the administration doesn't respond well to student issues, and counseling is understaffed. It is nearly impossible to get a meeting with a counselor, and even if you can meet with one, it is even harder to walk out of there with a schedule change, or the class you wanted. Most of the teachers think that they get paid to write up students instead of actually teach them. If you don't understand a concept the way that your teacher teaches it, you'd better know how to figure it out on your own. The class sizes are huge and I'v been in at least three classes where there weren't enough desks for all the students. All the school cares about is sports. My freshman year, they called all the ninth graders into the cafeteria to yell at us because half of us were failing at least one class. However, they did offer credit recovery programs. Overall, the school is okay, not great.
