    "Sonoma Valley High School has been a great school for my now 16 year old. There are over 40 extra curricular activities available including sports, music, drama, forensics (speech and debate), cheerleading, dance, newspaper, etc. Like all schools, and all workplaces, there are amazing teachers and those who should probably have chosen a different career. But I maintain that the outstanding, amazing and motivating teachers are changing student lives for the better...the others, well, it's a good lesson in life to the students that not everyone in your world can be fantastic. With our superintendent, new principal, and absolutely amazing college counseling center, I give this school high marks, and am very happy that my child is able to learn and participate."

    "Our son is about to start his junior year at Sonoma Valley High School and we've been very pleased with his education to date. He's received a strong academic foundation to prepare him for college. In addition, since the school aims to prepare graduates for both college and vocational tracks, they have an array of electives that have been an unexpectedly positive part of our son's overall experience. The video production program is particularly outstanding. The new principal is bringing strong leadership to the school and we would recommend SVHS to anyone considering it."

    "My youngest son is currently a Senior at SVHS. For 3 out of his 4 years he has had the honor and privilege of taking Video Production + Broadcasting classes with Peter Hansen. Mr. Hansen procures financial donations to help fund his Video Production + Broadcasting courses at SVHS. The yearly Sonoma International Film Festival is one of the regular donors. These classes and Mr. Hansen's support has enabled our son obtain employment filming events for the high school, local TV station and other schools in the valley. Our son has had some additional tremendous teachers, Mick O'Mera (who moved to Tamalpais HS in Mill Valley this year), David Donnelley and Robert Midgley. His counselor, Betzy Chavez, is always available and responds to every inquiry. Our family is very grateful to SVHS."

    "This was my high school. It's a small school with a big heart. I learned so much while attending there"

    "You basically shape your own experience here. I'm a 2009 graduate at UCLA, and thus far, my education has more than sufficiently prepared me for my current classes (chem, calc, etc.). Sure, there are some bad teachers, but there are also amazing teachers who taught me about their subject, as well as about life. I am still friends with several of my teachers. If you approach education with enthusiasm and become involved in school/community service, you will succeed here. Also, my friends and I really didn't notice much gang activity over our 4 yrs. Depends on with whom you associate I suppose."
