I am currently a senior at Valencia High School and my experience throughout the four years I have attended was unforgettable. I have had the opportunity to further my education with the AP classes offered. I have also made unforgettable memories with my friends and Softball team. We have an excellent staff who care for the student and do what is best for us. Manny sports are offered at Valencia High School such as Football, Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, Wrestling, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, and Track. There are also a various number of clubs and programs available.

I have attended Valencia High School for approximently 4 years now, and I feel as though our Academics could use some assistance, along with our academics our college readiness. Our sports, clubs, activities aren't the greatest, but as a high school student I still attend some sports. Furthermore, as for my 4 years at Valencia High School I have to give most of the credit to out "School Resource Officer, and Campus Security Officers" for keeping all approximently 970 of us safe at all times. We do have a pronounced administration team as well. In my opinion, I will rate my school "Average" 3/5.
Valencia High School was overall a good experience for me. However, the classes were not very challenging and many of the teachers were not able to efficiently teach their students. The likely reasons for the lack of proficient teachers are the lack of money the school has to offer and the lack of a good reputation. On the other hand, there were not many security issues and I liked the social environment. The students are fairly polite to one another and there isn't any major bullying issues.
