Valley Regional High School Reviews
As a learning experience, Valley is one of the best schools out there. Valley is a smaller high school, with about 600 students, which gives each class a smaller and more intimate feel. Many of the teachers, especially those that teach AP courses, are excellent, and have given me a great education throughout these three years. For me, the best part about Valley has been the diverse extracurricular activities available to students. I participate in many clubs and after school activities from sports to musical, and every activity has taught me just as much as the classes I take, which is a real credit to Valley as a whole.
Good young teachers, but many are poor and I have no idea why they're still there (especially in the math department). I can only name one good math teacher, and he's reserved for the higher levels like calculus because the other teachers are probably unable to teach it. English and social studies departments are good, and sciences are on the better side of average. Terrible administration, has no idea what they're doing, does nothing to benefit the students, and only does things to make themselves look good. Barely any diversity whatsoever in the student body, but that's simply because of the school's size and location.
I love the music program. The music community is so close, it's like family. I have learned a great deal from all of my classes as a whole and it is not hard to succeed. There are specific things that could be better, though. For example, the schedule was changed recently, and I am not a huge fan. We used to have block scheduling which meant we had four classes per quarter. They were about an hour long and it was really nice to learn in. Now we switched to a hybrid schedule which has seven classes altogether that vary in length and class depending on the day of the week. It's confusing at first, and it's definitely not as good as last year's schedule, but you get used to it, I guess.
