My daughter went here briefly, but loved it. She was in advanced classes and felt she was challenged. Kids were nice, too.

Great educators, it is also parents responsibility to be present at school to make the changes they believe is necessary. My niece has been doing really well at Sun Valley. Teachers are very dedicated and supportive!!

While there are some good educators here, my daughter's two years so far has been completely hit and miss. This year, she enrolled in Spanish, but is switching classes because the school can't fill the position (they have a French teacher filling the spot). Her history teacher last year had students build a castle--I remember doing that same project in 5th grade. She always complains about out-of-control classrooms and teachers who can't (or won't) do anything about it. I have a student who loves to learn and loves school, but I can see that drive and spark diminishing every day she comes home. This isn't just SVHS's fault. North Carolina is killing curiosity and love of learning in our schools all the way from K-12. Should you stay away from SVHS? Maybe. But the best advice is to leave NC.

This school is doing a great job given all the budget cuts they've endured these past few years. Hats off to the leadership and teachers of this school for finding ways to make up the some of the loss of funding.

Not sure what it is about SV, but it's making my kids happy, they want to learn, they want to go to school (ok, on most days). Go Sun Valley!

I am very pleased and happy with the excellent education program and the quality of the faculty in SVHS. My son is a senior student this year and I proudly say that these four years at SVHS have been of a great experience for him. Thanks to the extra support and dedication coming from his teachers. To the principal and teachers, keep up the great job!!

You always hear bad things about everywhere but over all, we have great teachers, student and we are provided a safe place to learn even though it is rediculously overcrowded!

Overall, SVHS has been a good experience for my daughter and myself. She is in the honors program, and I have been very impressed with the quality of the teachers and the education plans. While I don't think the general education level is as good as what we experienced in Illinois, it is certainly one of the better programs in the Carolinas. They also have a good selection of sports, music and extracurricular activities - tennis, volleyball, soccer, football, basketball, choir, band, Beta Club, and ROTC to name a few. It is not all positive however. I have not been very impressed with [one teacher], and my daughter has been considering dropping out because of him.
