A long time ago I went to this school. At that time, 60s, the Principle was incompetent. The people at the school are still as ignorant, and uneducated as ever. The students who commented that they are ill-prepared after graduation speak the truth. The teachers and adminstrators from the 1960s on-ward have been the dregs of society. The Principle and then, if you can believe it, Superintendent was a fantical believer in corporal punishment and ran the school seflishly and like a prison without proper review of the ability of teachers to educate the children. He set the stage by example: no mentoring, no encouragement, no reviews, no progressive education. It is not only a school you do not want to have your children educated, but you do not want to be exposed to the tremendous ignorance and beligerance of the people in the area.

I am a student who attened Shenandoah Valley and grad. there. I was pretty well an A student and thought I knew my stuff.That was untill I attened my freshmen year at collage. I felt stupid not really knowing anything! Shen. does not teach you the things you need or should know, but only prep. you for the pssa's to pass. Think twice before you would decide to move your children to this district.

This school is a good school if we had more parents involved with there children education this would help. Dont leave everything up to the teachers us as parents have to help to.The teachers can only do so much but we have to reinforce what they teach.M y son has been going to this school and he has turned out to be a fine student and not just with the teachers help but also with his parents help so it works both ways. We need to get our kids involved in things and push them everything is out there for anyone to grab doesnt matter who you are what you are it is there if you want it bad enough. Your child can become what he wants it is there for him or her but you have to be a team.

Very limited sports and extracurricular activities. The teachers teach to the tests, rather then for the student. The only thing important to them is that the school preforms well on state tests. Educational choices are limited or not there at all. Students are not prepared at all for further education in college, but rather secondary schools or factory work. The college drop out rate is very high from graduates because they are lost once they make it to a real school. The only way you would think it is a good school is if you were not aware of what other school offer their students.
