In my personal time at Valley Junior-Senior Highschool, I enjoyed all of the teachers that I had. There were many Teachers who were dedicated and passionate about learning that it made it fun to go to their classes every single day and excel. All of the faculty is very dedicated to seeing you succeed and that is very valuable to have in a school. My school also has a very well made college application program and an excellent college adviser to help us get to where we want to be. The only that I wish I had at Valley Highschool are more dedicated clubs that are run by teachers that go after school to allow students to have more in depth learning of what they want to learn.

Administration does not care about the teacher they continuously furlough and rehire. It's unsafe, and doesn't offer anything to a child who hopes to achieve Ivy League.
Valley Junior/Senior High School is a pretty good school over all. There is excellent resources for college preparation, and the teachers are very good at helping you whenever you need it.
