    "Golden Valley High School is an amazing school. The staff are amazing they do their best to explain a lesson and they help you individually if you don't quite understand. They want to see all their students reach their maximum potential by helping us prepare to take on our future especially with getting into college there are numerous ways to get help with homework from both teacher and there mentoring programs to help us academically achieve our goals. They have many social and academic clubs in which help each individual realize that they can be a great person and they can help others despite our insecurities that we may have. There is always a friend that is willing to help as long as you will accept with an open mind. Golden Valley has an amazing learning system and it allows student to reach their full potentials."

    "The time that I attended this school, it was maybe 4-5 years old only but it was a great school. Had some incredible memories of the wonderful clubs and activities there, even classes were memorable. There were it's fair share of great teachers and bad ones as well, but overall, it was a good school. I didn't have a chance to participate in alot of the activities that went one based on my own issues at home but if I have had that opportunity, I believe it would have been more fun. Only thing I was disappointed from the school is the fact that they limited the number of people who could go to the senior prom and I couldn't go because it was full. I was a senior!"

    "As through my experience at golden valley high school, it's been a really great year with the support they give and helping you get ready for college and the Avid program and CSF and other college programs they really open up to you and speak to you about college. I like it because then I could ask my questions that if been confused on about college and knowing what I would have to do to get in and be a successful student at the UC. Now if you hear your peers tell you differently don't to listen to them there going off of what other tell them don't let them keep you from experiencing new things like college class AP classes. All in all, if your thinking of going to gvhs or anything school you go to take advantage of the years you have there and what you do because at the end everything you've done it'll be paid off and that's when you'll know you've done it."

    "High school has been a very interesting experience for me. It has definitely had its highs and lows and many confusing experiences in between. Overall, I feel like I have been equipped for not only college, but also life as a whole. Golden Valley High School has taught me many things, both academically and emotionally. It has revealed and exposed my true colors, both good and bad, and as a result, has built many aspects of my character. My experiences at Golden Valley High school and have shaped me into the person that I am today."
