My experience in Valley View High School has been great. First of all, because of my math teacher Mr. De la Rosa, he is an awesome teacher and makes the best efforts to help you understand every lesson throughout the year. Second, all of my other teachers that i have had have been the best they sometime are very picky about their work or projects but it matters in the terms that they make you learn something new in every lesson! Furthermore, something I would like to change is the security there is in campus. Some times have I encounter with rude or very nosy securities in campus that have nothing to do but bother students when they are going into class.

This year, I moved from IDEA Pharr College Preparatory to Valley View High School because I wanted to enter the dual program where a high school student can also do college classes while in high school. My schedule relatively looks the same, but I now have to pay for my AP Exams which in IDEA Pharr I did not have to do. Also, I will have to pay in order to take the ACT Test if I would like to take it for more than one time. Additionally, I feel like the teachers are not well prepared to teach the courses they teach as my former teachers in IDEA Pharr were. I am content enough about having started taking my college classes at South Texas College while in Valley View. In Valley View, I am completely in the dark about when the seasons start, the coaches, and whether or not there are try outs. I feel like in that department and in having training for AP teachers to better prepare students, the school could definitely do so much better to say the least.
I've been attending Valley view high school since Pre-k. I really enjoy being here because every single person gets along with each other and we have like a type of good community built here. I feel very confident of myself and my teachers. They are always supporting you whenever there is difficult times. Not only does this school make me feel this way, but the counselors are always very supportive when it comes to helping you with college applications or from making a bad decision.
