One word to describe my experience at Valhalla High School I would say is conflicted. I use the word conflicted because I disagree with the handling of situations I've seen occur. I feel that there are not enough outlets for students to be who they are. We are restricted from leaving the building so we should at least have an area created to hang out. The area by the windows serve as a hang out spot, but we're always told to leave. I feel that there is not enough advice given for us students as a whole. Along with awareness issues and preventions. It should be talked about instead of giving tests on how you feel about your school and your peers around you. I truly like seeing positivity being spread from our teachers. I can truly say, only a few portray that type of attitude. We need to be encouraged rather than belittled. If you really want your students happy and see them succeed in school I advise making a change in handling situations and the mindset our teacher's display.

Excellent public school, great school to grow up in! Still in touch with former classmates to this day. Teachers are always available for help and plenty of after school activities to choose from.
Size of the school is great and teachers are passionate about their subjects, however the administration is poor at planning, scheduling and sending out notes that are not mispelled.
