    Health & Safety: The school has visitor sign in policies, police officers on school property and cameras to ensure the safety of its students. The school nurse and her assistant are kind, understanding and helpful. Overall, the school is safe unless a student has the personality that draws them to trouble. Drug and alcohol use is generally outside of school excluding the random stoned students.

    Food: The lunch food at Valley Forge isn't too bad. Every student has a certain lunch day they like, and one they don't. Personally, I always look forward to pizza day at school but think the Rib-E-Que sandwich and steamed vegetables are disgusting. There are some "healthy" options on the menu. Every student is required to have a fruit and a vegetable on their tray. Salads are available ala-carte but are made of 50% iceberg lettuce and 50% shredded cheese so they aren't nutritionally beneficial. Vending machines are available for cheap, healthier snacks like baked chips instead of regular.

    Administration & Policies: The school has attempted to adapt to the times by eliminating the strict cell phone policies. The dress code continues to be ridiculous(no shoulders showing). School rules are not enforced equally among students. Valley Forge reacted well to controversial subjects such as transgenderism in students. There is no tolerance for fighting and bullying is promptly addressed.

    Sports & Fitness: Sports equipment is updated and modern. Student involvement is not very big and team winnings are rare. The varying sport's teams all seem to hold lots of talent, just not the support and leadership required to score a win.

    Teachers: The teachers are no different varying from high school to high school. There are the great ones-- unforgettable personalities and enticing teaching styles; and those that make class feel comparable to a horror movie. In general, the teachers seem to be knowledgable on the topic they teach and willing to integrate technology into the classroom.
