    "Teachers at this school for the most part are pretty fair. Most are very caring of the students and how they are doing. If there is one thing the teachers at Sun Valley are good at, it is making one on one time with the students to make sure they are understanding the material. Although school has become more about grades than actually understanding the material, most teachers try there hardest to make what is being taught valuable."

    "I would say the past 4 years at Sun Valley have been very memorable and I would not change them if I could. Everything that happened, happened for a reason and I am thankful for that. The overall experience has been pretty fun. Some of my favorite experiences include proms, sporting events, and variety show. One thing that definitely makes this school unique is that we are a small school, and at times can be very close-nit. When it comes down to supporting our sports teams, or cheering on something different, the school comes together as one."

    "The parents of students at Sun Valley tend to be present for only things that are considered popular. They don't get too involved in the lives of the students at the school and have almost no impact whatsoevedr on the way the school is run and the culture we live in."

    "Unfortunately, the vast majority of the teachers at Sun Valley are good at the subject they teach but are not good with the students they teach. Of course, there are a few teachers who went above and beyond to be relateable and understanding of students. Those teachers are, more often than not, considered the best in our district. However, I cannot say the same about most of the other teachers who either were not great nor were they terrible or were just terrible."

    "There are some teachers at my school who I can honestly say have outstanding teaching skills and are extremely talented at what they do-- encouraging kids to learn and to hopefully one day make a difference in young peoples' lives. They are friendly, welcoming, and always there to help students out in times of need. For the majority of the staff, however, I cannot say the same. I feel an overwhelming lack of effort on several of their ends. Many will wait weeks to grade assignments, refuse to give extra help on homework, and give little to no feedback on concepts that students are struggling with. I appreciate the fact that they are there to teach us and to help us with the best of intentions, but I do not capture that feeling from them at times. I hope there will one day be more of an improvement in the staff at Sun Valley High School."
