Golden Valley High School Reviews
I have been a teacher at this school for the past seven years. Every year we have managed to to raise our APY?API scores and are now over the 700 mark. We have done our very best to see that we have a staff who will promote all the plans we have put into place to see that we are successful. One of our greatest impacts has been our tutoring program in all core subjects. On any given day we have over 300 students in attendance. Our school climate is safe. We have an on site police officer plus five security. We have a zero tolerance policy which is followed up with a great administration.
