Throughout my school years at Valley City High School, I've learned that people change, priorities change, and that is okay. I lost friends because we valued different things. On the weekends when I was writing yet another application essay, they'd all hang out without me, having long forgotten about school or responsibilities come senior year.
When they say that you are only friends with some people because you see them every day, they aren't kidding. Some people are fun to talk to at lunch but if they don't want the same things as you in life, you eventually can't relate anymore.

I like the options for dual credit but I wish there was more options and courses. I also wish there was more option than just Spanish for a foreign language. I really like the teachers in the school, I feel like they are very passionate about their jobs.
I have attended Valley City High School since I was a 7th grade student. Valley City is quite small and has a very close knit community. I have enjoyed my time at VCHS greatly in that I have met lifelong friends, outstanding teachers, and administration. When you go to such a small school you have all of the resources and teacher-student time that you can ever imagine. There have been few teachers that I have ever felt poorly about when it comes to learning, which I am privileged to say.
