My experience at Valencia High School was good, overall. I enjoyed my time there and loved so many aspects of the school. We emphasized academics a lot and our sports culture was great. I would have liked to see more togetherness in school spirit, such as singing our school song at rallies or having more school assemblies. I also think we can enhance the social aspect of the school by making clubs and organizations more visible to all students. But in general, this school is amazing and I am so proud to have been a Viking!

Overall, Valencia High School's student population is very diverse with each person having a ton of unique interests. The counselors are very helpful in getting students ready for college and provide them with all the help and tools that they need. The teachers are very fun and exciting and prepare students for their future careers and lives and provide them with what they need to succeed. The campus is relatively safe with fences and gates lining every entrance/exit. There are campus supervisors posted at each access point verifying students and their ID cards. A large number of classes are offered at the school and many teachers to teach those subjects. Both Advanced Placement and Honors Programs are available to the students who want to enroll in them. Each of the sports teams has won several championships each and has entered the regional finals almost every year.
I am now a senior at Valencia High School and I am nearing the end of my high school experience. I have been involved with some clubs and programs but I am not the most involved student on campus. A couple things that I really enjoyed at Valencia High School were the dances, our football games, basketball games. Our student body was very good at planning events. The things that Valencia High School lacks are normal school things like academics, school bathrooms, administration and counseling. Our teachers are not very good at teaching lessons or helping students, we have a handful of good teachers in each department, but for the most part the teachers do not care about students passing their classes. I once had a teacher that I went to after class to ask for help on one math problem and he replied with " Look it up when you get home or pay attention in class." I never went to ask him for help again, instead I went to my math teacher from the previous year for help.
