Valley Forge High School Reviews

Overall, my four years here were a blast! I enjoyed taking AP courses and participating in a variety of different extra curricular activities. The teachers are very good for the most part. I would have liked to see more technology classes, though, especially since they through a MacBook at me my senior year that I had no idea how to use. One semester my freshman year did not prepare me for college at all.
Review Valley Forge High School
I wish the school could be more unified. However, I have seen students of Forge come together before. It was when the school was at the verge of being closed along with two other schools in the district. The way a majority of the students came together to march down to the Board of Education meeting to decide the fate of the school was absolutely amazing. It showed that the students did care about the future of the school and I couldn't be more proud of them. The fate of Forge is not guaranteed yet but the students efforts did not end up in vain as the school is being opened for another year.
Valley Forge High School is an amazing, student friendly school. I also love the AP opportunities and the vocational programs. One thing, however, that I would like to change is the amount of clubs we have. I would like to add more clubs or at least make the existing clubs more accessible to the students. Also, the staff could improve with informing students of upcoming events.
