The school does not have a student-centered approach to conflict resolution and communication. They will not hear the student side. Very true that the administration will brand you and they will lie to make their side look good. The administration is also vindictive. Probably should have the school board clean house starting with the director of spec ed. They are hypocrites with their bullying as they like to bully the students and parents around. The teachers for the most part are good.
The teachers are great for the most part. The problem is the administration at this school. They do brand kids and do not give them second chances. I think that they can care a lot more about the students there. There is no complaints about most of the teachers there.
Sun Valley was a great school when I went there. I did hear somethings I didn't like when my little sister started going there but all schools go through phases. High school can be as good or as bad as you want to make it. If you think things are bad than they will probably be bad. Be more enthusiatic and it can be great. SV is a great school just fon't ask soeone from Chichester LOL
become a student there ok. the valley is not a bad school. sure there are the people who may not be the best you got to stay away from them. and for your information the teachers do care ok. there are teachers who do their best to help their students pass. ok. and students with disabilies! come on now. sv has many disabled students and your going to tell me that not one teacher cares about them. youve got to be kidding me ok. sv has many teachers who help the disabled students and teach them. so dont put your 2 sence in to things you dont know thank you very much.
I think that this school is below average. They never give out second chances, once you do one thing, your branded. Kids make mistakes. The teachers for the most part are doing okay. The administration could care a little more about the students though.
I agree that teachers don't want a child in their class if the student has a learning disability and they are at that in between stage. The students self esteem is brought down because they just can't grasp on as fast as the other students and then they are frustrated and give up. The student has a hard time concentrating because of others in the class that are talking and the lessons go onto the next when they didn't understand the previous.
Sun Valley has received a lot of negative press, especially with the turmoil within the school board. Sun Valley is still a quality high school and the education is there for the taking. Sun Valley offers a diverse student population, which I believe is a crucial componnent of my son's education. My son has enjoyed the classes offers and has complemented the number of AP courses offered. Considering the results of his AP Placement exams, I see no reason to complain.
