I have always appreciated the Vale High School for the dedication it has to help students achieve their dream. The school also appreciates those who achieve their apex goals and earn accolades, showing what we call, "Viking Pride." Also, the teacher work really hard with each student and provides their needs. However, I think that they could improve when it comes to music and the arts. So far, our school only has one class related to creativity and that is Art. I feel like the school could provide enough money to start more clubs and even put on a music program.
After graduation from Vale high school in 2017 I can look back on my experience there as a great stepping stone before heading out to college. Vale, Oregon is a small town, and everyone pretty much knows everyone which makes the whole town seem like a family. Going through the school district it was very clear the teachers and administration wanted everyone to have a change at a positive future. I found that even though the school didn't sufficient funds to meet the needs of the students I found that the family culture built there made for a positive experience. I really felt comfortable with all the teachers because I could see they had interest in all their student’s futures. What really made my high school experience great was how close the community was and how involved they were with the school. Vale high school has a great environment from school clubs, sports, dances, etc. They truly care about helping students succeed and taking the next step in their lives.
