    "Golden Valley isn't as bad as people may think it is. It can be improved though. I don't like the classes here. My grades dropped when I moved here because they were ahead of what I was doing at my old school. The teachers aren't as helpful as I would like them to be. People here just aren't friendly and it's very hard to adjust and make friends when everyone here shuts you out. Golden Valley isn't a good school, at least not for me."

    "I'm currently a junior at Golden Valley High school and I have been there all four years. I have nothing but good things to say not only about other students but the teachers are outstanding. I have learned so much from great teachers but the students are the real success story I have many friends including myself who strive in AP classes and extra curricular activities and sports. Overall do not judge my school just because of the area or people who go their but actually go and see for yourself how amazing it is."

    "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."
