    "I absolutely love West Valley! The environment is good for learning no matter what you're interested. Although there are a lot of drugs, as there are in most schools in Alaska, but as long as you hang out with the right people it's really easy to stay out of that scene if you want to. There will be people that support you no matter what you are going through. And AIR BAND IS AMAZING. If you get a chance look up "west valley air band" on youtube!"

    "West valley is a good school. The staffs works hard to prevent bullying. They have an anti bully club as well as a Suicide prevention team. The teachers are also very willing to help you with any issues you may be facing."

    "I have had ample opportunity to challenge myself and take courses that I want to take. I have gone there four years and each year, I have been provided with elective courses of my choosing such as steel drums and drafting. These courses opened my eyes to some of the possibilities that the future contains. Some of these courses offer college credit, which I have taken advantage of and built up. I have also been able to take college level courses, such as APs. These courses are rigorous but better prepare me for college and can also give me credits to use towards my college graduation."
