    "My overall experience was positive, but somewhat lacking. I liked DV from the standpoint of its academics (which are really very good) and its involvement in clubs and athletics, but I found the student body to be fairly homogenous and uninvolved in school spirit. I also found that while teachers were pretty good, administration was fairly lacking in any real leadership, and generally had no clue what they were doing. They did things with good intentions, but I really think they lacked a real connection with the student body or a concern about the welfare of the student population other than the schools rankings. DV is a good school, and you'll get out of it what you put into it. It can clear the way for a good college education, but by the time you've spent 4 years here, all you'll want to do is get out of this school and out of the area, which lacks anything interesting or important."

    "This is the only school that I have ever been to. Therefore, I am not too sure how great it compares to other public schools in different regions. One thing I do know is that compared to other schools in my area this is the only high school with over 23 ap classes available, and a pool. The ap classes are great for kids who want an advanced experience but they are pressured immensely. Other academics are great as well. Yet I am a quick learner. This means I often get bored in classes. When I get bored I do make myself useful though and work in my wood shop class. This helps me build on new skills. I will also go to the library and read a lot so I can learn new things. To continue, the pool is a great bonus for me because I love to swim, I have been on the swim team since I was 4 years old, and I lifeguard so I get to work their. I love to do sports and when I practice it gives me a way to take my mind off of my busy academic life. Yet this school is very into their sports. If you are not the best at a sport you are normally ignored in the sport which to me is extremely upsetting. It seems like it is more of an exclusion than an actual team. For me team sports have not been joyful. Yet I am still on the swim team and the varsity captain. I am hoping by having this leadership role I can possibly fix and help correct the exclusion that coaches create."

    "The student body and social scene is fairly accepting, but everybody sticks to their own groups. Also, everybody knows everybody, through one friend or another, so the rumor mill is always active and word gets around fast."

    "Most teachers are friendly and willing to work with students outside of class. Many teachers who teach higher level courses are very knowledgeable, but some lack knowledge about their chosen subject. Generally, teachers are fairly effective in communicating course material to students, but grading is all over the place, depending on the teacher and class. Some teachers definitely play favorites, and some classes have multiple teachers all grading differently. Teachers are normally pretty interested in students and try to get to know them, but some can be cold and unfriendly. Class sizes range from ridiculously small to larger than they really should be, depending on the course. Language classes tend to be pretty small and manageable, but second semester PE classes are always huge, and English and Science classes tend to suffer the most from overloading. Overall, decent teachers, with some below average, and some that are absolutely fantastic. It really is what you make of it."

    "For me, I personally see both sides of the spectrum when it comes to teachers ability. I have been an AP student since my sophomore year. Yet I do not take advanced classes in all subjects. Due to this, I am able to see how different it is when going from an extremely advanced (AP) class to a basic class. The strange part about all of it is that you see that some basic teachers are better than AP teachers. To me it all depends on not the teacher them self, but who else is in the class, how many other people there are in each class, the type of personalities that are in each room and so forth. If you show a genuine interest in the class, put in the time and the effort, and actually make an attempt, on average the teachers are great and will go out of their way to help the students. I know this since I am that kind of student that gives it my all so I can succeed in what i want to. Along with this if one teacher will not help a student out for whatever reason it may be, there is another teacher in that building that will do what they can to help if asked. Through all my years of high school I have learned that each teacher has a different style, which may be hard to pick up on, but can be accommodated to if a student is struggling. I have met very few teachers that do not show some sort of interest towards their students. The only thing with Delaware Valley is that sometimes consistency of grading/ grade records is not teachers strong points."
