East Valley High School is an amazing school! The teaching staff is wonderful.. They treat the students individually making sure to take into consideration any special needs of each child as everyone learns differently.They offer credit recovery classes, 4 day school week, and many options for extra curricular activities. If your child is looking for a smaller learning inviroment I would definitely recommend coming here. Not to mention the principal is an outstanding individual who relates well with the kids!!

This school is great for taking on-line classes and accomplishing a lot toward graduation. They have some older students and there's lots of drug use by them; thus, not good for younger girls to attend this school, because they don't divide up the older students from the younger students. Some parents have revmoved their daughters since they are constantly being hit on by older, troubled students - if you have an attractive daughter, avoid this school..

My daughter currently attends ACP High School and although it was great for her the first year and a half these last few months have been rediculous and hard for her. Between the teachers making new rules and favoring the older students who i don't even think should be allowed to attend a school like this, and the constant threats and such I am very interested in getting her into another Charter High School closer to home, yet I cannot seem to find information on this school anywhere. Anyone help???

There are drugs & alcohol at every school, so the comment below is unfair & simply not true. My student loves the small student body & student to teacher ratio. The school is under an improvement grant and over 50% of the staff is new, it has been a refreshing change & highly reccommend East Valley High.

Students benefit from small class sizes and individualized attention. Students who are lacking credits or who want to get ahead would benefit from our online program.

East Valley High School offered my child opportunities they would not have had at any other institution! She was able to participate in the high school play, join the dance and cheer squad, be on student council and keep her grades up! She was failing at the public school, and the teachers really offered her the support she needed. Best move I made for my child,

Not so bad - notice the reviews below are pretty outdated. I sent 2 kids there and although the students are a bit 'rough' the teachers seem dedicated and the education decent.

This has to be 1 of the worst schools I have ever dealt with. My child is being bullied everyday and nothing is being done. I wish I had other option at this point but I dont. The principal is very useless. I would not recommed this school at all!

Undisciplined students; lack of curriculum; lack of texts and teaching materials----this is NOT an institute of education; it is just a holding tank.

The biggest problem was a high turnover in principals and poor management by owners. Well, they did it again! EVH just released the best principal the school has ever had. I'll be taking my student somewhere else and recommeding others do the same.

I see that a parent wrote, 'this school is amazing' yeah, amazingly bad! If you are reading this looking for a school for your child, keep looking. East Valley High is a business, with poor managment and owners who truly have no concern for your kids.

I like the attention that teachers give to the students. Mr. Katz class about the stock market was awesome and we even got a national award for it!

This school is wonderful for my child. It is not a large school so you dont have too many students distracting others but a smaller more focused learning environment.

East Valley High School is a superb school with an amazing teaching staff that are great teachers and very supportive. Whenever the school needs something, rather it be a new teacher or a new wall put in. Even a second story to the school is being added, in combination with an elevator, for those physically challenged. All in all, its a great school and I would suggest it to anyone searching for a higher education.

My daughter spent two years at Legacy and one at the high school. There were one or two teachers each year that were questionable but with my help she passed the classes and has moved on. As for all the changes, this has not affected my child in a bad way but I have always felt that charter schools were for those kids who had trouble adjusting to the huge public schools. My daughter went there due to my job and a close friends children going there. She is now going to her local high school.

I have had my children at this school for 2 years and we are leaving. The turn over of principals (3 in two years) makes for a lack of discipline among the students and the teachers have no control at all. The administration does not seem to care if the students are safe from bullies or any other harm, they are all about getting the school full with whoever walks thru the door. The teachers lack the adultness to teach the kids and treat the students with a lack of respect that if it was directed to them would send the child to detention. I would not recommend this school to anyone (and I have in the past) unless they can get there act together.

I think this school is amazing. My students received all the extra help needed by the teachers. The teachers seem to honestly care about their students and will do whatever necessary to help them acheive their goals. I think this school does have problems as any school does, and there have been discipline problems, but I think that reflects on the students and their attitudes rather than on the school. I think administration is wonderful and is always striving to help us when needed. My students grades have greatly improved as well as their social skills.

This school has poor academic help for it's students. They have a high rate of teacher turn over and most of the teachers are teaching more than one classes a day. Because the other teacher quit. They have had police come to there school and had students walk out in hand cuffs. And students have poor grades. and lack of respect for teachers.
