I am an alumni from cv and I lived every minute I spent there. The teachers/guidance counselors/staff actually care about the students and strive to give them the best education that they can.


Posted July 14, 2011

When I came here from Newark Valley Prison School/Boot Camp, I felt like my life had new meaning. Instead of constant depression and even thoughts of suicide, I found happiness and a reason to live thanks to this school. Chenango Valley gave me a fresh breath of air and got me to find a home on the stage and a full blown love for acting in their drama club. I found I could be myself in their GSA, and I felt like I didn't have to be athletic or popular to fit in. I could be my theatrical, non-athletic, nerdy self without the fear of any real judgement. Sure there were kids with a high and mighty personality that would pick on anyone they deemed beneath them, but that's the same for every school. It was just not bad enough to phase me. I am a happy, healthy person and graduated with a smile on my face and tears in my eyes, thanking this school for a new lease on life. I have to say, if a school can make a kid who had feared going down a hallway of any school feel that terror melt away within a week's time, it's worth enrollment. I can't recommend this school any more to kids who are pure individuals and parents who value their kids' happiness. Thank you CV. I salute you.

Chenango Valley has many excellent, caring teachers (as well as guidance counselors and other staff) that will go out of their way to ensure that a child has what they need to be successful.

Apparently a few of the students creating a review have missed a few spelling classes or at least how to use spell check. I am an alumni and found that High School is all you make it. No one holds your hand, you are a young adult and can take control of your future beginning NOW.

Chenango Valley is a JOKE, the enviornment is not a kid-friendly place to be, the area has some nice things other than those nice things its not good quality at all.

Chenango Valley doesn't care if you don't have great grades, i sure don't. I play lacrosse, am involved in Drama and Ski club and noone cares that i don't wear polos and kakis like most guys. All of the kids talk to all the kids, and if you're someone who looks like the're feeling down about something, alot of the kids would ask what was wrong and try to help you as best they can. It's a great school. But i think our best quality is our guidance counselors, the're the most easy people to get along with. Chenango Valley is just a great school.

chenango valleey schools are a joke among the 5 other schools i have ever been to. all they seem to care about is how they look and if you dont look like a 'good' kid or if you stand out from all the rest by not having that high of grades or dressing diffrent maybe causeing a little trobble.......you are labled a bad child of trobble......they have told about 45 people i personaly know to drop out and get there ged. most of them being in tonly the ninth grade.... that is unexeptable........yeah if you play major sports and make the school look good then the school is nice to you if not they treat you liike your not good enough to be there
