Both of our daugthers went to RV, 1 has a 4 year degree and is a school teacher like my wife. The second has a masters in OT. They did very well at RV. It is a good school.

Rancocas Valley is a great school. My husband anad I were purposeful about purchasing our home in the RV sending district so that my daughter could attend RV. I have found the teachers to be very genuine and caring. Many go above and beyond to provide support as well as offering an open lione of communication with parents. For those serious about academics and college prep, teachers and guidance counselors are there to provide the instruction to ensure students are on the right track to achieve what they want and need. I couldn't ask for a better school.

The school itself is a nice environment. There's really not many problems going on at all. There's plenty of academic programs to choose from, but some fill up rather quickly so be sure to hop on that. It's a pleasant experience day to day but there's room for improvements. When I went there I had substitutes that could barely speak English and certain teachers were unnecessarily strict or rude. I'm a good student, never had a disciplinary mark on my record but they still treated me like I was a punkish teen. If you're planning on going there, do your best to stay away from the home instruction program if you're out on extended medical. Picture no timely work delivery, no correspondence, and an attitude when you ask what's going on. This school is good but it's definitely not the best.

large number of students, great diversity due to 5 sending districts, great AP courses for those who are serious about college prep.

I am a senior this year, and I've enjoyed every class I've been in since freshman year. My teachers were very helpful, and were never too busy to give me extra help.

I think the RV is a wonderful school. I find that most of the teachers are young and full of spirit. They go the extra mile to help the kids. They either come in early or stay later, others give up their lunch hour to provide additional help for the kids. I highly recommend this school. From the academics to the extra curriculars the RV is a wonderful school that offers much enrichment to its students.

Some parents don't want to send their kids to RV, because they don't think that it's a good school. I can't fathom where they would get that idea. RV is a really good school, and it really does have something for everyone. No matter who you are and what you like to do, you're gonna find people to hang out with that have things in common with you. There's lots of different things to get involved in and you're sure to find something you like. I really enjoyed my time at RV.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
