During my time at Valley high, our school grew more diverse and became more welcoming of others. I remember I had multiple friends who were terrified of coming out, but when our high school held its very own pride parade, they felt confident and it let every student know that they were accepted. We always celebrated the fact that we were (still are) minorities. We always helped each other out to the fullest. Yes there was some bullying but that never stopped other students from standing up for them. This high school definitely had its ups and downs with the way some things were handled but I think they did a fantastic job and welcoming everyone and helping every person.

The opportunities available are amazing. Regardless of what stereotypes there may be, it is up to each student to shape their own experience!
What I really like about Valley High School is all the opportunities it possesses that allows low income students to have a chance at having college field trips, college visits, scholarship opportunities, and so forth! The lunch lines could be better though.
