Valley View High School is a very unique high school. I enjoy attending it as well as others. For its small size, students have great spirit. Our football and basketball games have great support from the students. We also have a variety of clubs to join, which allows the students to interact with each other and make friendships. Academically we are strong in our district. We could be stronger if students work harder. We have great teachers, offer AP courses, and offer tutoring. However, with all the positives there are areas of improvement. Our school is small, so I feel it can expand to give the students more space on campus. The lunch is not the best and can improve if we get better food. I don't eat school lunch. Our technology is up to date, but we don't have any e readers or tablets like other schools do. If we can get them, we can improve our education. Also our football field need renovation as well as our cafeteria. It also won't hurt to fund our sports programs a little more, but we don't have the money. If our school is able to win this $5,000 it will only mean great achievements. It will improve the education of many students and can transform their lives.

Valley Is a good school. It's not exactly fantastic in reference to behavior, or economic surplus (or even stability) but as a student, i can still say that it's a grand place. The teachers are committed to the class, and don't easily give up. they can tell who does and doesn't care about learning or going someplace in life, and make sure to not let ne'er-do-wells drag down the rest. I'm a little sad that i have to leave them this year, but I'm negotiating with my parents to let me finish the year before moving to Ohio. The AHA program is really good, and the Honors program prioritizes the right people. The kids sometimes have a bad rep as a bunch of no-good cholos, but for the most part, they're all good people... Goodbye Valley... I'll miss you.

Probably the best you're going to get in Moreno Valley. Great campus. We live just across the street and have had two students so far here with two more to attend here in the future.

i went to valley laste year.this is a good school if your kids are willing to put in work and try hard if not the teachers will just give up on you and keep on moving on with no problem.the portfolio is just another way for the teachers to make sure your doing your work but at the same time if you didnt do that assignment that has to be in your portfolio you would fail english which happend to me.i believe if you cild is an AP student then that school will be a breeze to the.if not you cild will struggle but they might make it at the same time.the teachers are pretty decent they have alot of clubs and they support all of the sports to the fullest and all of the clubs to the fullest.

Science department refuses to update their curricullum. The new textbooks sit on the counter and are not used. This makes it impossible to help the student or hire a tutor, since there is no relevent reference material available. Test and intstruction cover a fraction of multiple chapters in order to match past textbooks and old lessons. Students are just confused and frustrated. Hopefully your student will go on to college and realize it was not them, but the poor instruction and assesment. Unfortunatly they will start behind their peers and may not have the grades required to get into a UC. Even worse, they may not believe that they have the ability to go on to a university.

I am a Vally View graduate and now my son is a freshman. I am very excited to have him going to the same school I did. Valley View has always been a tough school on academics and discipline. There are always a few teachers and/ or staff that have lost their enthusiasm for doing their job but as a whole their are so excellent people at Valley View. Most want to see your child succeed. I believe the senior projects and portfolios are preparing students for college. Term papers are ususally a huge portion of their grade and they won't pass the class if not completed or their College Thesis. So hopefully your student rises to the challenge and graduates from Valley and goes on to College. Don't forget parents you are the biggest influence in your childs life and if you think it's too hard so will they!

This school has teachers there that are so old they should not be teaching. Teachers refuse to try different ways to teach students. It is either the student gets it and if not lets keep going. The admin will not help students until it is too late to bring up grades even after parents have asked for help. My son was a freshman and I am transfering him to another school. Also the portfolio and senior project is just another area where teachers can degrade students who have trouble with writing. My son's first english teacher put him down enfront of all the students in his class. Wow that helps students learn. I would not choose this school for any child not an AP student.

I transferred from Vista Del Lago to here, and wow is there a difference! The teachers are great. The only disadvantage of this school is its age. A lot of the door handles broken, but its cool with me.

Valley View is as good as the parrents,teachers and students. My daughter is doing great there and my son is failing a few classes. Some of it is partly his fault, partly the teachers fault, and partly my fault. I have had a few issues with some of his teachers and the principle has tried to help but the teacher who sent my son out of class for asking his teacher to explain the instructions again has not called my back. I am so surprised to see such low rating for our schools here in Moreno Valley. I had no idea how bad it was when i moved here 18 years ago. The worst schools in orange are much better then our best schools. Shamefull

The quality of the academic programs is great; individual student motivation and parent participation is lacking, largely due to extended commutes. VVHS has outstanding extracurricular activities, so encourage your child to get involved! What can I say... my spouse has been volunteering at VVHS for more than 17-years! Yes, volunteering. More parents need to try this, the rewards are positive interactions with several gifted and talented students.

I am a new parent to valley view high, and I had a very bad and stressful situation getting my child registered because there was so much confusion and I don't feel that the staff had the proper instructions on how to guide the students and parents. But since school has been in session, I and my child feel that for the most part of it the staff is great and friendly. A lot of the teachers are great with their teaching technics and for the few bad apples there are, well we all need to learn to work with them and weed them out and focus on the good.The teachers all need to inter-act with their students to both be successful and have the students succeed.

If you're going into the honors and AP classes, Valley View is fantastic. Otherwise, the school's enviroment isn't conducive to learning. The teachers in it are excellent, and truly care about preparing you for college. If you're in Moreno Valley, it's the best school to go to if you want the best academic program (in the area).

I have had 2 kids graduate from here and 1 next year. I have dealt with a many teachers and staff. Although most of my experiences have been good overall, there have been a few rotton apples. I feel blessed that for the most part, my kids have had a great set of teachers. As far as extracurricular activities go there has been far too many cuts in the budgets. We as adults complain that the kids are getting into trouble, well if there were more things for them to do afterschool that don't cost an arm and a leg, I beleive that we wouldn't have as near the amount of problems we have.

Valley View's staff of administrators and teachers did the best they could with the little resources available to them. My son was a high achiever in academics, sports, & student government. He graduated with honors and a clear sense of what is necessary to sucessfully proceed in life. Nonetheless, I am more than a little perturbed when I compare the standardized test scores of the huddled masses in the Moreno Valley schools. The children are being cheated out of their right to education; where is all the funding going? Affluent schools like Beverly Hills High are very sucessful in education. It's not because their kids start out smarter than ours. It's because our kids are not lucky enough to be at schools where the bureacrats care enough about the students to want them to succeed. Minorities would soar with proper funding & caring teachers. The best ones are only teach'g the wealthy/advanced students--unfair!

Although I am not a parent, I am a student, a senior to be exact. I love attending VVHS and it has an excellent atmosphere. All of the programs are great and the classes are awesome. I have been taking Honors and AP courses since my freshmen year and it has helped a lot. Also, the ROTC program is the best. Every year, the competitive drill teams win and usually take first in practically everything. The choir and band also do well, as well as the sport teams. I am also apart of the cross-country and track teams and they are great!

I am a parent of one graduate in 2002 and another one graduating this year 2004. The only thing I have a problem with is the senior projects. I believe if one school is going to require it then all schools in the district should fellow. It does put alot of pressure on that senior student, along with every other thing they have to worry about in there senior year. I don't strongly don't believe this project should decide if the student should graduate or be able to walk with his/her senior class. Basically, they are saying it doesn't matter what the student has done the last 4 years, if they don't finish or pass this project they don't graduate. Other then that Valley View has been a great school, I would say the best.

Why would anyone take the time to read half of the comments posted on this website. To the parents, you make statements that sound rational, yet you criticize the education your child is receiving. When I read the comments I laughed to myself, I believe it is you parents that didn't receive adequate education yourselves. Your comments had spelling and grammatical errors. So it's not your position to comment on how a teacher educates your child, when you didn't go to college to educate. Otherwise you would be a teacher yourself. So if you have so much 'petty' things to complain about, why don't you go to Valley View and teach. It upsets me greatly to read these posts, because I know there are many teachers at Valley View who pour their heart and souls into education.

I am not a parent either but i feel that my opinion is just as valued if not more so than a parent, being that i am a product of the school rather than an observer. The senior project/portfolios are just bits of the real world, which not only deals with english, math, and all the the academics, but with how your kid deals with stress. if they can't handle those assignments, your kid doesn't deserve to graduate. California's kids are behind the whole nation in the forms of our poor education system...i wonder why...maybe its because parents won't even stand behind the schools when they are giving 'out 'too much homework'. That's baloney, and every kid shouldn't be let to skate through school anymore. it needs to be a challenge, or our children will not be able to function at the level of everyone else in this country in the future. suck it up and do the work, and parents need to start disciplining their kids again. studying or working until 10:30 pm is horrible but staying up to watch jay leno on a school nite is acceptable? get real, people.

I found that counselors did not take too much time to help my son. Some of the teachers want to be tough and end up using excess discipline. I did not find too much involvement from the administration. They are more concerned with cell phones than with low grades. I rate this school a D.

well im not a parent but i would like to say that i am a graduate from valley view class of 2001 and to all you parents, yes portfolio's and senior projects are hard, but if you try your best and work hard your child will do good. when i was doing my projects it was so hard but fun at the same time when choosing a project you have to do it on things u love and enjoy doing also on what u know about that subject, if its from snowboarding, to doing it on a being a doctor. then it wont be so hard. its not the schools fault for those students that did not gradute its the students only becasue they probabley didnt care or get help to succed the projects. im telling u that my project i did got me a job and a sucsseful life and im proud. it has taught me organization,hard work,meeting goals,comunication skills,and much more. so i would like to thank valley view and the teachers who helped me . Thank you

I think that this school is good for students that like to achieve many things, but this school is really hard. Valley View is the only school in Moreno Valley school district that have to do portfoliio and student projects. I know many people who didn't graduate for this particular reason and I personally don't think that it's fair. I feel that they should just have no portfolio and no senior project cause it seems to me that it effects the students and myself very much. Thank You for you time
