The teachers are wonderful people and pushes students to do their best and participate after school. Through my three years and ongoing, west valley is the home of the mustangs and have been the most inspirational and respectful school I’ve been to. From football games to anime club, there isn’t a moment of boredom before and after school. I am one of the tutors for the after school program and I have taught many students and learned many personal things that pushed me to become the best.

West Valley High is good public highschool compared to others in the Hemet unified school district. Its major advantage is its teachers and academics that help students thrive in this environment. One of West Valley Highs' major down flaws is its students. In a public school environment, the flaws are apparent in the difference between academic students and students who don't do work that harms the environment.
I love West Valley High School. I have had an amazing experience here. From meeting new people and developing new friendships, to connecting to teachers and administration. Most of the adults are easy to talk to and encouraging. Almost all of them want to see you succeed and learn. Things I would change would probably be just the few teachers that do not care about the students' learning and instead are there just for a paycheck. However, this can be seen with all schools.
