    "this school isnt that bad as some people think it is. sure we may have some really disrespectful students but the staff is overall good. our curriculum is great considering where the school is located and the population of the school. GV has a very nice campus off school hours but when students are there that place is a landfill. im sorry if this sounds rude but its true. the student body has school spirit and thats the best when it comes to rallies or football games or any school related events. the staff is really strict but they are mainly easygoing if you dont get into trouble very often. honors and AP classes are offered but, take it from me, there arent a lot of those classes and are hard to get into. clubs, on the other hand, theres a bunch of those. you can find just about any club. its great. our athletic dept isnt always the best of the best but they are extremely competitive ill tell you that and they become like a second family. our performing arts dept is great; the students and teachers are really dedicated and its great to see them perform, its phenomenal. this is all from my own personal experience so hopefully it helps in any way."

    "I know of someone who will be attending this school and she told me that she has heard great things about this school.She was hoping that there was an anime club since she enjoys anime and she feels that an anime club would open up more students.So i suggest that an anime club should be added to this school's extra curriculum activities."

    "I recently enrolled my child at Golden Valley High School , i spoke with a freshman counslor, and he was absoluty wonderful. He was very encouraging and helpful, I loved how he was able to communicate with my child. Leaving his office I felt at peace and calm. But, I did not leave the school that way,. My next stop was with the dean. He was rude,scarastic,unfriendly, and thought he could speak down to my son and I. When I left his office , it was in near tears. So my experience started off great but ended horrible,"

    "I graduated from Golden Valley in '08 and all i can say the teachers were very helpful and teacher to student ratio was great, the classrooms weren't crowded; compare to my freshmen year of high school in San Fernando Valley. The school has great sports teams and hardworking staff."
