We moved our son to Hidden Valley as a freshman after being home schooled for 2 years. He didn't want to go to a large overcrowded jr. high or High School, I don't blame him! This is a small school. You will have the "jocks", " hicks", "stoners", " nerds", at ANY SCHOOL(even private). The principal is GREAT and VERY hands on. The teachers..a few of them really good, a few of them really bad(I think that on a whole teachers are getting lazy and feeling entitled). So, I would say this year has gone great, and I am on the whole happy with Hidden Valley!

Hidden Valley is a beautiful school. It has true character. I don't think I could honestly say the same for the students who go there. There is the handful of kids who are involved and take part and they will grow to become great, successful adults. But, a majority of the kids are just there because they have to be. You see a lot of kids being profoundly disrespectful to the school and the people around them. This really takes away a lot of the fun in learning and makes it difficult to focus on why we're all actually there. The students who are involved though are wonderful people, and they always work to make you feel comfortable and at home at Hidden Valley. Most of the teachers take time to know the kids and form connections. They work with you to figure out what you need to succeed. The staff are all phenomenal on a personal and on an academic level. As a former student of Hidden Valley I can say I feel like a person and not just someone being pushed through the system.

HVHS is a very handson type of school... The kids here are really good and down to earth... We just a small country school but I think that's what makes us different...

As a parent this is our first year. I like the fact the school is a smaller scale. The kids seem to enjoy each other, the sports, teachers, and I dont see any bullying! I wish I would of been able to go to a smaller school verses a graduating class of 980... So far I like what I see!!!

I think Hidden valley high school could be better. the teachers play favorites and the jocks are the schools most prize possession.The kids are also very rude and judgmental.

As a former student, I'd like to say that in many ways, attending Hidden Valley truly shaped me into the positive person I am today. I was involved in a few extracurricular activities and sports, yet I learned so much from the participants and the teachers; were it not for some of the teachers that gave their time and all of their heart into projects and their classes, I would not be the strong, intellegent person I am today.

As a former student of Hidden Valley, I have to say that the teachers and faculty of Hidden Valley shaped me into who I am today. The HV staff are not only there to teach the students, but they really take the time to form relationships with the students. I feel that is a great way to teach students. Hidden Valley was also nice beccause it is a relatively small school in comparison to others, which is why you really get to know everyone there, both fellow students and faculty. Overall, HV is an awesome place to trust your children's education with.

I've noticed that you don't see a lot of parent participation until the senior events come around. It's nice of parents to be supportive of their seniors, but the other grades need parent involvement, too. Dennis Misner is a great principal. He listens, is patient with students, and doesn't bend over backwards to make students miserable. He respects his students and tries to work with them one-on-one to make a high school a more positive experience for them.
