Lenape Valley is a good school until you really look deep. Even though the school was built in the 70's, the staff has fallen behind on keeping the school up to date. Shortage in money caused all the smaller activities and sports to be tossed aside as the football and baseball team is praised. The teachers are very good at their job, but it is a shame to see the school fall a part. Physicly the roof leaks everywhere and the whole school needs a renovation. Educationally, the teachers are okay. Some great and others awful. But the drug situation has been masked. I attended Lenape 3 years ago and my sister tells me stories of k-9 teams coming into the school a couple of times each year to search lockers. They do bust a few people each time. Time were not as bad but she also mentions the use of E- Cigarettes in class. It distracts from their education. A big defect of this school is its art department. The school has neglected the arts and paid more attention to the sports. I was big in art and they would refuse to buy us new supplies. But your view of lenape depends on where you chose to work. I just wanted to give a deeper first hand look of the situation in Lenape.

Poor experience. Attending Lenape Valley High School was a undesirable experience that I would never repeat again. Being a minority, it is often not too difficult to blend in with the local crowd by simply being friendly and social, however, this school could not be any further from that statement. Bullying and name-calling should be expected, as fellow students will say anything (forget the level of degree of the insult) to impress their friends, boy/girlfriends, and the so called "cooler kids". The amount of derogatory terms I have heard about over the span of these prolonged four years was overbearing at times, however I continued to keep my head up. If you are a parent interested in Lenape Valley Regional High School, your son or daughter will make friends just as they would at any other school. However the amount of hate and "back-talking" may hinder your child s high school education. I was able to tolerate my experience by taking hurtful and negative comments and transforming them to self-motivational concepts. As a result, Lenape Valley has made me into a stronger individual, however I would hate to see other fellow students struggle as I did.

I graduated from Lenape in 2004 and I loved my 4 years there. I loved my teachers and I did very well. I'm considering moving back to the area so that my son will go to Lenape when he is older.

Lenape is 138th in the state - kinda in the middle. They do not provide extended hours for the students for after-schools activities with teacher participation. The Busines Admin took the 3:15 late bus away that was owned by the school becasue someone told him it was not needed. Fortunately he will ask more people the next time who showed up to the BOE and complained that their kids was losing out that last squeeze of 40 mins to try and meet a teacher, counselor, use the library, whatever to still catch a bus home. Lack of after school transportation affects who can or cannot participate in sports if parents can't pickup and take the kids. Other schools in Sussex County provide a 4:15 bus and a 5:15 bus - This is GREEN Friendly enabling the kids to stay and be part of their community.Superintendent is awesome!

I did not like Lenape High School. My experience was very disappointing. I now compare how I feel being free and graduated. I worked all summer in NYC at the Harlem Hospital and able to feel much better about myself and develop some self-confidence. The enviornment inside Lenape is one of fear - of the students who will destroy you the best they can personally, or insure they intimidate someone like myself who has trouble reading but was not in special education. I am great in math. Like teachers who care. Disappear from teachers who bully who I can't please and can't get help from. Now attending college I enjoy the classes that I am good in and want to develop skills in like art, fashion design, and look forward to making friends. It's so easy out of High School! I can't believe it! High School at Lenape 4 Years. Blocking.

Lenape Valley is the greatest! Teachers who can actually joke around with the students with cool things to do. Occasionally fighting...but we learn and no one is too strict.
