    "I am now a senior at Shades Valley High School, class of 2018. I am in the Finance Academy and it is a great program that has helped me build my resume and gave me great experiences. Each year we have gained and lost teachers; however, during my junior year I lost some of the best academy teachers and we changed Principles which was an unexpected change. The lunch is terrible and I do not like the administrators. My English and math teachers have really prepared me for college and my finance academy teachers and class counselor have prepared me for my career."

    "Shades valley is a great high school to attend for becoming college ready. You should never go through high school not having any ideas about the next step you will take after you graduate. The best thing about the school was the counselors. My counselor provided me with all the information I needed plus extra information containing things such as scholarships and finding the best college for me."

    "Overall Shades Valley is okay but not the same. Some of the administration and teachers are racist. The councilor Ms. Adkinson is horrible. She is not helpful to students at all. The theater teacher Ms. Bishop is also horrible and racist. She is no good for the theatre department that shades valley was so popular for."
