    Even before being accepted into VCHS, I was greeted with enthusiasm and motivation to learn. The faculty are extremely encouraging and do everything they can so that students to succeed. Resources are available for everyone: musicians, athletes, mathletes, science nerds, engineers, you name it! If you have a passion, VC will help you grow and thrive in it. If you don't, VC will help you find what you are good at or challenges you. Overall great school :)

    Valley Christian offers students a variety of activities they can pursue, whether their passion lies with robotics, tap dance, or water polo. The campus is absolutely beautiful and offers many classes students can take for credits. While this school has a large White and Asian population, there are very few Black, Latinx, and Pacific Islander students attending. The school does implement a Christian curriculum in most of the classes and requires students to go to chapel every Wednesday. Personally, this school has a pretty positive environment but could use a little work accommodating for the rapidly growing population of students who come from different cultural and religious backgrounds.
    Good academics- only if you take advanced courses. Otherwise, it's a typical school.
    Huge gap between advanced courses and regular courses. You're either floating through easy as pie or massively swamped and stressed out.

    Teacher retention rate isn't the highest, but that logically makes sense due to the fact that the Bay Area (specifically San Jose, where Valley is located) has extremely high housing costs which aren't usually suitable for teachers.

    I personally enjoyed the amount of opportunities available. From Robotics to Coding Clubs to even Ultimate Frisbee, there is something for everyone at Valley- be it sports or career or recreational.

    Good balance between academic and athletic quality- better than most schools in the area. But Valley is definitely not the best high school in CA.

    In the words of some, Valley is Not a "Christian school with a football team", but a "Football school with a Christian theme."
    By far the most accurate statement I've heard referencing Valley.
