I am one of 36 parent volunteers that run the College and Career Center. Working closely with the counselors, vice principals, and Mr. Horn, the principal, I see the commitment to quality. This year alone there are several students going to ivy leaque schools, let alone the other universities. I have one child that has already graduated and is a junior in college and was well prepared for the next level of acadamia. I am extremely pleased with the education. The music dept. is awesome! The only thing that bothers me in the least is sometimes you get teachers that are burned out and you cannot get rid of them, this is a district problem though and not a school issue.
This school is excellent. The parent involvement is dynamic! The teachers and staff really care about the students and the quality of education received at Green Valley High School. Extracurricular activities are well supervised and the students are very well behaved! The counselors are extremely helpful and they are always willing to help the students in whatever way they can. Students are encouraged to go on to college and excel in life. They are shown respect and they give respect. This school's educational program is tops in all areas!
There is a new principal for the 2003-2004 school year. I am hopeful that the new principal will improve upon the leadership rating. There is really no where to go but up. Parent involvement has been discouraged by some rude staff members.
One of my two children has graduated from Green Valley High School and one is currently a junior. I believe the school provides an excellent education to students who take the Honors and AP classes. The College Prep classes are another story. For the most part, they need to be more challenging, have more homework and have more research paper assignments. I question whether my child was adequately prepared to write long research papers with multiple types of sources, footnotes and bibliographies. But,if your child really desires a great education this is the school to attend. The opportunities are endless. I believe Green Valley High has some great, very committed teachers who get the kids excited about learning. There is also an awesome choral director. Green Valley's choral program is the best! They have achieved national recognition by winning the 2001 National Grammy Award. Green Valley's baseball team rocks! They have won 8 state championships. This school benefits from lots of parent involvement as well as strong support from the local community.
