I had the chance to enter classes that really challenged me. These teachers wanted nothing but to better you and as a student about to enter college, that made the difference. The interaction between teachers and students is what this a great atmosphere. Teachers here at Valley love their job and as a student you can tell that they do. But the way they still challenged you is what is appreciated. The dual-enrollment credits that can earn college credit as well as the preparation for AP and ACT test. Every student here that takes their education seriously, has a good influence on others which creates a good atmosphere. Small school praise education and that is what separates Valley High School from others.

What I like about this school is that there are really great teachers that help you in school. My freshman year was a blast especially because I am very involved in sports and in clubs. I love the school, but if there were something i would change is school lunch and instead of having Mondays off I rather have Fridays off. I love the teachers especially Mrs.Hill. The fact the her Ace class is super fun and always active, I love how she helps me and other students finish our I cap requirements and thanks to her more students will be able to graduate because they have I cap requirements done. I also love the classes that the school offers. I am currently enrolled in 3 Advanced placement classes, and the teacher who teach them are so nice and they help me become a better student and they also helps me understand more things than I thought I was able to understand.

I liked there FFA program. We were all very involved and everything was always a good time. The teachers were great with all of us and always kept us engaged. Also the AG classes were great I learned how to weld, tool identification, built a chair and learned all the different names for female and male farm animals
