I graduated in 2015. Although the campus is smaller than most, it is still full of enrichment activities and educational opportunities. It's gotten many academic awards and undergone various improving renovations. Since it's the town main school district, the sense of community is very strong. The teachers are kind and care for their students, going above and beyond to help them excel if the students are determined to succeed themselves. I would love to see more creative and artistic advancements added to the school and curriculum in the future.

Valley Park Senior High is a wonderful place to gain knowledge about the past, present and future! Though it is a small school, it has benefits of being connected to the teachers and other administration as well as the student body. This high school is truly a diamond in the rough and I would fully recommend sending any student to this school.
I appreciate the fact that it is a smaller school, because that means that the class is more personalized and that the teacher will focus on the students more to make them achieve the best education that they can. The student population is also generally nice/polite to others. I do wish that they had more club options though.
