    "In the beginning of the year scheduling classes is really hectic, especially around this time. Usually ALL the classes are full so it's pretty hard to get into the classes that you want because everyone else is already in that class. Also the office has extremely long lines of kids waiting to get their schedule changed; and then sometimes once they actually get into the guidance specialists office they can't even change their classes how they want. If you take AP classes then of course your workload's going to be much heavier than say someone taking all regular classes. Some teachers are great with their homework, test, and grading practices and you can easily follow them. But other teachers sometimes go off the rails and it's a bit more difficult to find out how they do things. But for me, it's been relatively easy to follow along with my classes."

    "Fountain Valley High is a very academic school. It is attended mostly by very driven students. The academics can be somewhat rigorous, so if you are not a good student, it can become overwhelming. They do offer courses for students that are not on an academic path. It can be a little frustrating at times because in the higher classes the workload can be quite heavy. The other problem is that Fountain Valley is a very large school with tons of competitive students. So even though a student may be doing just as much work and hard classes as a student at another local school, it is hard at this school to get into the top 10%."

    "Everyone at school is pretty accepting of one another. There are a few people that aren't so friendly, but the majority is accepting. I haven't heard of much bullying other than the fact that it's by or to people out of school. Other than that FVHS is a pretty great school. There hasn't been any problems with race or sexual orientation from the years that I've been at FVHS, or at least any that I've heard of."

    "I do find that there are a lot of clicks at this school. People can be very judgmental and unaccepting. Everyone knows who the "popular" kids are, and quite honestly, they can be hard to handle. The good thing is that there are a lot of great kids at the school too that make up for that. I have a small, but awesome group of friends that I spend my time with because they support me in everything I do. Also I find that the majority of the students at Fountain Valley High are quite diverse when it comes to ethnicity and sexual orientation. I think that is largely because our generation has been exposed to such a variety of individuals, and overall society has become more accepting."
    Topic: Overall Experience | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "I feel that my overall experience at Fountain Valley has been positive. I have done well in my classes and have a really great group of friends that are a lot like me. Sometimes I feel like the communication between departments could be improved cause the right hand doesn't always know what the left hand is doing. The school seems like a safe environment to be in and they have many opportunities for students. I do wish that they offered more electives, although that being said, I have so many academic classes I don't know if I would have time for them."
