    "One thing I loved about Valley was that there was a club or sport for everything. It seemed as though everyone could find friends and piers who not only understood them but related to them as well."

    "When I attended Valley High school some of my favorite memories was being apart of the cross country team, participating in the fashion shows, and my classes. I always felt comfortable and safe at Valley. I had teachers that I could talk to and the best of friends. I would go to this school again because my experience was so great there!"

    "I feel at Valley there is a lot of diversity in the students. Everything from race to sexual orientation. I feel at Valley people are very accepting of others and their backgrounds. No one is against anyone really when it comes to those things. There is a high percentage of student involvement and there is truly something for everyone to get involved in that fits their passions. I feel like there is an average amount of peer pressure at Valley depending on the group you hang out in. High school is a time of peer pressure and learning about yourself. It is in high school that most people face peer pressure it is just a matter of how they deal with it."

    "Most of the teachers I've had have been able to help me when I didn't understand the subject. But there were a lot of teachers who did not give real world examples of when we would use certain topics we were covering, leaving me to wonder what is the importance of learning a subject you don't seem to be using in everyday life."
