I am a former staff member at Sun Valley High School, and I feel it necesary I express my honest opinions on this school. Sun Valley provides a safe, nurturing and condusive learning environment for the students. They provide a second chance for many studen'ts because not only the teachers but also the staff firmly believe in the success of the individual. They continue to change their programs to assist the students future marketability. I believe the principal is one of the greatest leaders and a wonderful mentor for many students. I would reccommend this school to student's looking for quality education and teachers.

The staff & teachers at Sun Valley are great. Teachers give 100% effort in trying to get to know the students personally and they really care. I wish I knew about Sun Valley when I first moved from California. I am proud to graduate from SVHS & I would recommend this school to anyone especially those who are behind in their credits.

Sun Valley has been the best high school I have been to. They give people a chance when other schools turn them away. I have never been so excited to to to school and learn until I came to Sun Valley. The staff and teachers are super nice and very helpful. Sun Valley has inspired me to do better in every aspect of my life. I am grateful to have had the chance to come here. I've learned skills that other schools couldn't provide. Sun Valley is not just a school to me but a family.

I would caution anyone who is thinking about enrolling their student in this school. The web site made it seem like such a safe caring environment, when in fact it is not. Academic standards are extremely low and teachers seem to have little or no control. Sudents are basicially allowed to cuss, threaten, and disrupt as they wish.

I've always hated school. When I was a Sophomore in HS I told my parents that I needed to graduate ASAP or I might not make it through HS. We found Sun Valley and I am so glad that we did. I graduated my Junior year in the top 10% of my class and received a Scholarship. The teachers there are awesome - they actually CARE about each and every student... I've never experienced that any where else. If your child hates school, they may love Sun Valley. They care about helping you succeed and change any negative in your life. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone that was falling behind or was thinking about dropping out...get a real diploma at a great school!

Sun Valley is a great school, perfect for exchange students as you concentrate on a subject for a longer period of time. The teachers are helpful and the student body is diverse. I see no reason why this school has a lower scored than Highland, other than a lack of sport programs. I am impressed with the faculty and the flexibility of schedule.

Teachers are of the best quality, compassionate, caring, educated individuals. Safety is top priority, cameras and officers on duty. Open to parent involvement. Concentrates on academics not dress codes etc...

This school isn't only for troubled kids. My child is a 4.0 student, National Honor Society with one of the top AIMS grades for 2007. She will be able to graduate as a junior due to their computer in class program and at home independent studies. They are strict with attendence and Fridays are make up or tutor days. You cannot get this from a public school. Oh, Teachers are top notch, security as well. Happy, Happy, Happy with this school.

I graduated from Sun Valley and I loved it. It is a good school for kids who don't fit into the usual mold of public schools. The teachers are amazing and treat the students like competent members of society and not just stupid kids. Their class structure allows you to graduate quickly, or go at your own pace. Also, the classes are very different than that of a public school. I learned a lot about things such as the Cold War, the 60's, and women's literature in great depth. You don't just read a huge history book and then are expected to understand history. They teach in ways that make it come to life and really seem real for students. I, for one, was just really bored with public schools' curriculum and Sun Valley was a refreshing change for me to learn a lot more than I would have otherwise.

I am so glad my daughters attend Sun Valley High School. It enabled one to graduate 1 year early and the other to catch up and graduate on time.

Sun Valley High School has been good for my son. He's gone from totally failing to having a B average. He likes the format, where school work is done in School, not at home. This allows him to focus on school when he's there, and focus on his part time job when he's not. Kids don't need to be loaded down with homework, so much that they begin to resent the school and having no other life than doing homework. This way when there are questions, then they have the teacher right there to answer questions. This format works and I commend the school doing it. My son isn't into football or other sports, so the extracurriclar activities aren't important, he wasn't popular jock, so he didn't fit into that perfect little mold. This school as been good for him. The principle and teachers genuinely care about the kids.

I think Sun Valley has definitely kept my son's interest, but I am concerned about certain aspects of the education there. For example- one of the instructors has a rule that if a student has perfect attendance for the length of the class, the student automatically receives a 100% score on both the mid term and the final exam. Is this really the best way to teach kids how to learn? How many of the students who pass the course actually learn the material and how many pass the course because of perfect attendance. Just because a student is there every class does not mean he or she has learned what is necessary to pass the class. Maybe this is why the AIMS scores are so low, the students are given passing grades when they have not earned them.

I have two children that go to this school and my husband and I have never been happier with any other school like we have with Sun Valley High. The princible is wonderful and so are all of the teachers who teach here.The teachers and staff really motivate the children there to get an education and they always seem to go out of their way for each and every student. A couple years ago my 16 year old daughter thought she really didnt need an education, but after Mr. Procopio incorraged, motivated her and explained how important her education is, she was back in school before you knew it and is now graduating this year 2005, but will be done 5 months early before graduation day. Thank you Mr. Procopio for all your motivation and for caring so much about all your students at Sun Valley High !
