I currently go to MV and would like to say that this school has been thru many changes in the last few years of me being in high school. Its had its ups and downs. We currently have a great administration and I am proud to call MV my school. They encourage you to go to college in fact we do many career building things. I feel that I am ready to start college as soon as I graduate. We have many new transfer students this year from bigger schools around us and as far as I can tell they seem very happy and are fitting in great. Whether you are an athlete or non athlete. Teachers always encourage you to do your very best and are very willing to help if you are struggling. I feel that MV is a great school to send my kids to in the future.

I was a transfer student to MV. I feel that if you spent your whole student life at MV, then it could have been a good school. The staff were not very open to new students. The curriculum is not set up to really help students prepare for college. I understand that they are a smaller district without the funding of the larger districts. Although I recieved good grades, I was not encouraged to enroll in college. In fact, they wouldn't let me transfer some of my credits from my previous school. I was encouraged to drop out and get my GED. I picked up credits from the nearby college to graduate. I still have nighmares that I didn't graduate. I'll wake up and for a few minutes forget that I graduated not only high school, but college as well.

Most of the teachers at mv are very condescending to any student that does not participate in athletics. None of the teachers push students to go to college. I would never send my children to this school.

I completely disagree with the last comment. I am a current student of mission valley, to graduate in 2007, and I believe MV is a great school. The teachers do in fact care, and ready help whenever you need it. The new admisitration is really pulling things together with new equipment, uniforms, etc., And is really big on promoting school spirit, which I have never witnessed before. I am extremely proud to be a student at MV.

I am not a parent but I was a student from 1997-2001. At that time the school district was something that I would be proud to send my children to. The teachers and staff were your friends not just a teacher. Now they teach what they have to and nothing more, if they even do that. If a student now has a problem they are ignored by some of the newer teachers. The attitude at the school now is no one cares. Since there will be a new principal in 2006 there might be some changes.

I am not a parent of a student at Mission Valley, but I did attend Mission Valley. From a student's point of view, it is a wonderful school. Our principal for the last 2 years was a very good principal, but we have just switched administration. It has a very small town atmosphere, and you can get help with anything that you need help with. ~Class of 2005

I feel that Mission Valley is a wonderful school to attend to receive a quality education. As with any small community school, there are always going to be struggles with funding, but the community and faculty do the very best with what they have. I always felt safe at MV and that the faculty was very trustworthy. And whether we were winning or losing, the parents and teachers were always there to push and root us on.

Mission Valley High School is a small 3A high school that has many of the advantages of a small school. It has the problems any school has, but everyone here knows everyone else and the teachers really care. They are trying hard to improve the academics and also the athletic programs. This school does not have a great history of success but is trying to improve that. A lot of students are coming here from larger schools because they have a better chance to participate at this size of school.

The administration, staff, and students have always been a pleasure to work with. It is so great to get the kind of attention and assistance Mission Valley offers.

I am not a parent to any student at this school but I do have a very close friend that attends this school and a few weeks aghe told me that his principle told him to drop out because he was doing badly in a couple classes. To me any school that does not have respect or encouragment to their students is not a good school.

I would never send my children to this school or recommend anyone for that matter to this school. The actions of the community, teachers, coaches, administration, athletes and parents are very disturbing. They have no morals, values and respect for anyone. Obviously, the unethical choices of the parents, coaches and administration runs right on down to the students and athletes. They are a disgrace.
