Valley Christian High School Reviews

252 reviews

I recently graduated as a 2019 alum, and I had a very mixed experience here. There have recently been many administrative issues going on, leading to high teacher turnover rates. I've also found that the student culture has become more hostile, and it's sometimes difficult to find your niche here. The cheating culture here is rampant, and the school is definitely not doing enough to curb it. Even if students are caught cheating, they are too often let go with a slap on the wrist.
The counseling team is absolutely amazing for providing services and help- if you ask. They are usually more than happy to help with any questions or if you just want to talk despite being busy most of the time.
The teachers are very hit-or-miss here. Some teachers are amazing, but others lack the enthusiasm. It's not hard to get an A in most classes though.
There's many pros and cons to Valley, but I would reconsider going here as a prospective student due to the increasingly toxic student culture.

It's a beautiful campus and there are some excellent teachers. But if you don't take any APs/honors classes, the education at Valley is no better than any of the public schools in the area. At least it's easy to get good grades here. There are really great opportunities if you're self-driven and know where to look. Join the AMSE program, try out a sport, take advantage of the Conservatory. All the extracurriculars are very well-funded. There's a lot to appreciate about Valley. However, it has serious issues with the administration and the campus culture, which is quite ignorant and homogeneous, with some nepotism sprinkled in. If you can ignore that for four years, it's a good school and you'll get the support you need to do well in high school and beyond.
Valley Christian High School is a school full of opportunities. There is something for everyone. Throughout my four years, I was able to participate in the STEM and Theatre program at Valley. This diversity of subjects is reflected in the day classes too. There are a number of APs and Honors for almost every subject, but there are also classes like the REACH program that help students who are on a slower pace. The biggest turnoff from this school is the Christian title and the price. While there’s not much I can do to sugarcoat the tuition, there is some stuff to be said about the Christian side of the school. I am an Agnostic, and going into Valley I thought I was going to be surrounded by preachy, rich kids. Although that species does exist in the halls of Valley, you will be mostly surrounded by normal high school kids. The school doesn’t overly exert its Christian ideals onto those who don’t share them, but you have to be ready to immerse yourself into the Christian culture.
