My son, a sophomore, at Crescent Valley High School, is attending the most unique and spectacular high school in the country. In fact, my husband moved back to our home in Colorado while I stayed in Oregon for the only reason being that my son attend the Crescent Valley High School. The principal portrays a personality of instilling values and protocols that honor each individual students' style of learning. In addition, she strictly enforced an environment conducive to the highest level of learning and cares abundantly that each student achieves their highest potential. Bullying protocols are strictly enforced and my son even stated at the end of this summer that he couldn't wait to go back to school! Every high school student should FEEL this way and have a LOVE for learning. It takes a village to successfully implement an educational system that flourishes each individual and CVHS is the high school that carries this mission out!

CV is so so clean and friendly and is basically a prep school. I feel so safe and comfortable going there. I had no idea we were getting such a good education until recently, when i visited other schools. i always took it for granted! However, if you're considering CV as a possibility, it's very rigorous and definite Honors material.

My daughter is a freshman at CV; I am very impressed with how well the staff, students, and teachers aid in the transitioning of the students into high school. Instead of being a stressful transition it has resulted in new found freedoms, expanded education opportunities and new friends.

Crescent Valley has one of the best principals I have ever encountered. She is involved in both the academic AND the activities of the school. She knows the kids by name, she interacts with them all of the time, and she is creating a staff that emulates her.

Having moved across the country to join this communty, I looked at the schools very critically. CVHS has what it takes to be one of the best schools in the country. Many enriching opportunities within the school academics as well as encouraged within the community. The staff is caring and qualified. A student body who are diverse and intellectual. 5/5 for this school in my book.

Crescent Valley HS has some great teachers, counselors, advisors and coaches, who are fantastic at connecting with our teens and helping them navigate toward independence. The principal is truly awesome, who is ever present and so very positive and respected by the students, faculty and parents. The school is big enough to provide a good social environment, but still small enough that the kids don't feel anonymous. The school is also very friendly and welcoming to parents. There are so many ways to get involved and volunteer and parents really do get involved!

Crescent Valley is very organized. All the events are well-advertised and attended. There's also NO bullying what-so-ever, which is always a plus. Teachers monitor the hallways to make sure that no form of 'bullying' takes place at CV. There are classes for pretty much anything: from weight training to photo to marine biology. There's also a great amount of clubs to join at CV. Ski club, Water Polo, Robotics, and much, much more.

Crescent Valley High School provides excellent academics, sports, and music training for our students. Consistently strong contenders in sporting events last year the school scored a triple win in the music department with choir, band and orchestra all winning 1st place in state competition! The teachers and administrators are exceptional and caring and the kids responsible. It's a parent's dream!

CV promotes a collegiate-like atmosphere of mutual regard between students and faculty. Walking on campus, as a parent, it feels like walking into an engaging and fun think-tank where innovation and creativity are valued. The students have an opportunity to grow and show their talents and ideas in a highly autonomous way.

The school provides students with opportunities for various extracurricular activities including both academic and non-academic. Rules for student conduct within the school building is not too strict for students to feel over-controlled while they have opportunities to build responsibility for their own actions. I feel this is a very important opportunity to build a responsibility in a community.

I have to disagree with the first comment, nobody goes to the soccer games. a lot more kids go to the football and basketball games. The sports at CV are really political and that is why a lot of kids don't usually go out for new things. i personally don't really like the school, well as far as the students go. but the teachers are great and the class offerings are great, but i just don't like the student body there a whole lot.

The philosophy at CVHS has been to prepare students for life outside of high school. Students learn responsibility, time management and are able to participate at their own level of desire. Parents are encouraged to participate as partners in their students education and to volunteer on campus in many capacities - not just fundraising as the previous review spoke of. The teachers are highly motivated and many are 'master' educators. The school has a history of preparing students well for college. In fact, students from CV tend to earn higher grade point averages in Oregon colleges when compared to in state schools of like size and demographics. The athletic and activities excel in competition and the Pep band is definately the most outstanding in the Valley League. The staff is approachable and many willingly and naturally take on the role of mentor to students. You can not go wrong if you choose this school for your student.

I love Crescent Valley High School. My daughter graduated in 1997, was well prepared for Willamette University, and is now a teacher herself. My son is presently a junior and has tremendous support from his teachers, advisor, and coaches. CV has an outstanding math and science program with dedicated teachers in every department.

Kids have a lot of free time on their hands when they are not supervised as the school uses a block system. It hasn't affected my kid because she is a 4.0 student and is responsible to this point. Having worked there I have seen how kids slip through the cracks and because of the freedom they can't handle it and get behind and ultimately do poorly in their school work. The school has very high grade averages for the students involved in Athletics and extra-curricular activities. Last year honored with an award for the highest GPA average among athletes in 4A. Teachers do their time and get out of there, they are overburdened by demands and large class sizes, lack of school funding is a big issue and I see the teachers as being demoralized by the situation. The district cut several class days last year and is threatening to eliminate school sports to make ends meet.. The school has a few booster clubs doing work for their kids sports, but the general feeling is they really don't want volunteer parents being involved out there very much, unless it is raising them money. The school is in a beautiful location a couple of miles from town, generally upper middle class kids. Biggest sport interest is soccer for boys & girls and basketball 2nd, football last as only 37 kids came out this season, compared to 100+ for soccer.
