Congradulations William for getting Accepted to Harvard University. Go William for all your hard work.


Posted May 27, 2014

This school, despite its seemingly awful reputation, is mediocre. Not great as some here are claiming, nor nearly as bad as others seem to think. Theft and drugs are not issues more than any other typical high school. While my student was an AP/Honors student, he greatly enjoyed the staff and felt that they were of the highest quality. His counselor was very good, and would address any concerns he had. I am not a huge fan of the principal, however the other administrative staff was top tier. There have been complaints about a few of the staff, and the non-AP teachers may or may not be as high quality, I cannot say for sure. Overall the school is 4/5 in my opinion.

Absolutely NO school pride by teachers or the students! Teachers & administrators seem to do only the bare minimum and have no interest to push the students to do more than is required ( including extra curricular activities). Hart district needs to move in new administrative blood that is going to expect more and get results like other schools in the district do (esp. like VHS with their staff). School only seems to care about ESL & not the traditional student. Disappointed with the lack of school spirited high school experience my kids got there.

This School caters to the lowest common denominator and dumbs down the curriculum. Students are bused in from Val Verde. Leadership focuses more on ESL and resources are allocated with that as a priority. The AP students excel DESPITE the poor management. The less said about the Russian Math the better - avoid at all costs. Good teachers have left due to the principle and wrong direction. Please teach to the standard of the brightest and not the slowest students. If students aren't motivated... have them all be in a remedial class suited for their skill level without hamstringing the motivated students. AP students also go to private schools like Elite Prep.. so it's not all GVHS folks. The district has done a poor job managing this school.

This school has really turned it around since it opened. The educational opportunities have been excellent for my daughter, the teachers and her counselor are very involved and responsive. My daughter is very involved in her education as well . The sports are improving here, girls basketball, cross country, and track. The fine arts department, including the Choir department is excellent. There are some seriously talented kids at this school! The leadership shown by the teachers and the principle have been a great influence on my daughter. But, with that said, It's the kids that really make the school, not the other way around! We are very happy with Golden Valley.

This school lacks leadership in all areas. This school has the lowest test scores of all the schools in the District. The athletic programs have improved in the areas of cross country and track but all the others are in terrible shape including the major sports such as football, basketball, soccer, softball, and baseball. The majority of staff members do not like working for the principal. Discipline is also a major concern at this school as bullying, drugs, and theft are issues. Besides a few bright students at this school, the majority of students have behavoral and academic issues. This school is rather new and looks nice but the people who run this school are far from it.

If you look at the ratings, the lowest rating is attributed to parental involvement. By the time these kids reach high school, teachers only see these kids 35-45 minutes a day. Realistically, is that enough time to handle ALL of the problems listed? Get real. Most of the teachers work hard and are asked to do a lot for these kids, i.e. IP, after-school activities, etc. Parents need to be involved early on in their child's education...quit blaming others for a child's lack of achievement. Take some ownership and accept that you as a parent need to be more involved. Furthermore, Athletics are EXTRA-curricular. Quite ruining football, basketball, and other games by yelling, screaming, and blaming refs or coaches for a childs poor performance. Not all of these kids area getting full-ride scholarships so quit acting like these kids are pros. Atheltics is EXTRA- curricular.

The most diverse school in the Valley! This school started off in rough water, as conflicts arose in its first few years, but since than a lot has changed. There is no fear on campus. The students feel safe, they cannot remember the last time they have seen a fight. The parents in this valley just want to believe that this is a bad school, because of what happened when it first opened, but if they were to open their eyes and compare it to every other school in the valley, they would realize that it is the best school there. This school shows the most respect to other schools, and has the most class, this school has worked hard to get ride of its "ghetto valley" image and has succeeded above all expectations. and to anyone who says that drugs are a problem at GVHS, they need to get their facts right. Drugs are a major issue at many schools, not Golden Valley, ask students if they know anyone thats been expelled for drugs, than go to Canyon High and ask a student the same question...

Our first graduates this year will finish their four years at Gerogetown, UCLA, UCSB, UCSD and other quality universities. Go Grizzlies!

GV had over 80 graduating seniors receive awards for academic, athletic and artistic excellence at the school level, district level, city level and State level. Our seniors were awarded several thousand dollars in scholarship money and are attending schools such as UCSD, UCBerkley, Colorado State, CSUN, UCLA and many, many more. This reflects our students hard work and the dedication of faculty and staff! Don't knock your kids school. Be a part of the school community and make it the school you want it to be for your child! Go Grizzlies and Go GVHS!

This is a school that lacks the proper leadership in all areas. Drugs are a severe problem on campus. Fighting and stealing is common. Discipline is a major problem as administrators do nothing to combat drugs, defiance, bullying, or theft. This is a poorly runned school which does need a complete change from the very top.

Thisschool has some serious issues. Theft is a major problem at this school. This school also lacks adequete supervision. Parent participation, administrative staff, athletics need major improvement across the board. This school is not recommended for people who want a safe environment for their kids.

Highly disfunctional school in the area of athletics. Safety and Security is also a major concern at this school. Discipline, theft, and drug issues need to be cleaned up.

Posted April 12, 2010

Golden Valley does cater to the small amount of A.P. and Honers students. The majority of the students seem to be ESL, Special Ed, and the general student body who really struggle with academics. Discipline is a main concern as the people who run the school do not have consequences to set the tone. This school does not have any direction and lacks the discipline to maintain a safe environment for all the students. This school is a new school and the grounds on this campus appear to be damaged or vandalized often. The athletic facilities are not large enough to even handle the football team such as a small weight room. The principal has no idea how to run a athletic program, the ability to hire good coaches, or hire people to run it and it shows. This school needs a tremendous amount of help and overhaul.

This school offers no leadership from the top. This school continues to have no direction or organization. The majority of the staff and athletic coaches are very unhappy and the administration does not provide any discipline or consequences necessary to provide a safe environment for the students or staff. I am very displeased with the overall direction of this school and especially the athletic programs have been a disgrace to the community and the school district. Golden Valley needs a new leader to run this school and the current administration is just terrible. My son has been bullied often and has had several items stolen while on campus. I have also found out that the athletic teams have several theft and bullying issues go untouched by the proper leadership at this top. I do not recommend this school in any way. This a school with severe discipline issues.

The staff at this school is obviously oblivious, I was told by my child that a student at school was being attacked by other students on a somewhat regular basis. The student was attacked by fellow classmates and not one teacher, teachers aid, yard supervisor, or any other staff saw any of these incidents. The assailants even video taped these brutal physical assaults and placed them online. This is extremely scary. Scary for my child, whom was not involved, scary for future incidents, scary for the boy himself. This is supposed to be a school where I can trust my child is being taken care of as if he were their own, yet I am honestly dumbfounded and appalled at the staffs negligence in this situation. It's a sad world we live in when you child isn't even safe at school due to lack of supervision. This is a very sad

We have the best kids and the best staff out of any school. GVHS is still a pretty new school but we outshine the rest of them that have been around for ages. We got CDS in our 3rd year open and our basketball team won the championship last year. Go GVHS!

My son has had a great experience at Golden Valley HS. This will be his second year there and he's looking forward to school starting. Being a Distinguished school in such a short period of time speaks volumes. I believe it is the only Distinguished HS in the Hart District. Our sport teams are improving and I appreciate a school that holds students to a certain GPA to participate. GO Grizzly s!!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
