Owens Valley High School Reviews
I use to go to this school for two-three years. 6th-8th...I loved this school. Back then they didn't have a computers for every single student but that didn't really matter. We just had a computer lab, like most normal schools and lockers again, like most normal schools. I had a teacher there. Miss, y. She was a great teacher. She was so involved in making sure things.. stuck I guess you can say.
I was such a bad student. Always yelling at her but every day she was still so sweet.
I love this school for what it use to be. Even if it was really small...I loved how close it was. The sad truth about it now is that it will probably close. Maybe its the lack of funding or lack of students but one thing I know is that there are some really good teachers there. So my review is based on what it use to be because I dont know what its like now.
