Valley High School Ratings & Reviews
This school is horrible. Unless u are an athlete or popular, u don’t stand a chance.
I have a son in 6th grade here. He also has ADHD. He has a few teachers who just do not get that it's hard for him to sit still. He was also suspended once for 3 days for talking in class. I understand he isn't supposed to do it but he had also NEVER had lunch detention. Everyone else gets warned with lunch detention first. He also isn't aloud to bring a couple of his class books home. How is he supposed to homework correctly if he can't bring home the book. They are also always short on staff. I expect more from Valley. They do have some great teachers but the also have teachers who don't care. I want my child to have an excellent education but Valley consistently drops the ball.
It is all about the students at this school, and they are terrific students. They care about one another and want to do well.
My school is terrible. I have had 1 day since the beginning of the school year that I haven't had homework, and usually I'm up REALLY late. We are slowly improving, but there is LONG way to go. The principal does not look at petitions the students have created, and is reluctant to change; positive and negative. I do not recommend Valley. I do like that we have many programs, but they're all being drown out by sports.
This school is VERY unsatisfactory, there is nothing to be offered, and most of the students are disrespectful and rude. Most the teachers and students simply don't care about their education and much rather sit there and do, nothing. No teaching, just talking.
