    My school has a very low amount of teacher who care about helping students learn and prepare for the ap test. Counselors are careless when it comes to helping students about selecting the right classes. Also girls head basketball coach needs to be fired for showing favoriting acts towards certain girls.

    Paloma Valley is an excellent school because of the excellent and highly qualified staff. Whether it be the teachers in the classroom the Counselors the administration or the staff my children have had a most successful experience and have been well prepared and accepted to several UC schools.

    Paloma Valley is a great school because it advocates inspiration and helps students find their full potential. The kids there are great and when you step on campus you feel welcomed. My daughter attends PVHS and she has told me that all her teachers are supportive and she has never been turned out when she needed help or further assistance. She tells me that the teachers are what has made her school experience the best she has ever had and that she hopes that for the further generations that attend will be able to benefit from what this school has to offer. In my opinion this is one of the best public schools I can send my daughter to.

    I guess this school & the teachers are what we have to live with today. So much Is missing In education today I can't believe these kids are going to make It In life. You see It today when you go to the store & watch the cashier usually 20 something try to figure out you change. Some teachers at this school don't even grade homework. They just give you credit for turning It In even If It Is wrong. Some teachers will put you In a group for an assignment. Then they will pick one student In the group grade their work & give the other students In the group the same grade. 'Please teacher don't pick the lazy kid'. An AP teacher told his students at the begining of the year that none of them would pass the AP test at end of year. He was right boy what a teacher he Is. Another teacher penalizes all his students In the class If some of the students don't turn In their homework. After four days of school and my kid spending most of the weekend working on homework they go back today to find out that two kids didn't do their homework. That gives the whole class two points against them. The teacher told the class they get ten points and then the difficulty of their finals test goes up.

    Paloma Valley High School I believe that the school needs another way of picking up students. They need to work with Menifee and find a place to park or look into other entry ways for parents to pick up the students. I have watched people almost run over the students and not give them the right of way to cross the street. I am sure that someone is going to be hurt by cars not giving the students the right of way.

    PVHS is a great school!!! I've been going here for almost three years and love it. Although I will say we could have a few better teachers and there are few other issues but every school has their own issues no matter where you go. Out of all the other high schools in the Perris high district we are ranked the highest. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to have a good experience in high school.

    As a student I've seen this school change immensely in the past four years--and for the better. Granted in 2008 the reviews on here would definitely apply-- terrible counselors sluggish administration and all that junk. But in the time I've been here this school has really stepped up to the jplate improving academic programs encouraging a strong and safe community (with some help from the student-led PLUS program). And as far as bullying I saw little of it. I wasn't popular by any means but I didn't really encounter closed-off cliques but rather open social circles. Unless someone had a really obnoxious or arrogant way about them bad reputations are hard to come by in a school of 3000+ students. Even so remember no school is perfect and that Paloma is what you make of it. I can't speak about the sports program but if your student has drive then they'll join clubs do volunteer work get to know their counselor (even with hundreds of students mine knew my name and face well by senior year!) and take AP courses (which brandish some of the most talented teachers at the school) they'll make fond memories here.

    Unsupportive uncaring staff and administration. High tolerance for bullying. More concerned with scores than student safety. Teachers that are unwilling to go that extra mile for students. Counselors seem uninformed on how to guide students

    I find it appalling that the football coaches and staff park there cars in LIBRARY PARKING only spaces on a saturday morning and library patrons have to park over in the school parking lot. What kind of example is that. Ever heard of respecting the law.

    As a freshmen in Paloma Valley I have to say my school isn't the best or the worst school. It is an okay school. The school isn't perfect and is trying to do the best it can with what the distract gives them so i applaud them for that but i think they should try and improve the cleanness of the campus. My teachers are generally very supportive and they seem to enjoy working at Paloma. However I would have to say I am very disappointed in my school's coaches one is particular shows favoritism towards football players. The track coaches generally only accepted the people who were previously in a sport and very few who weren't got into track. I don't have a very high say on what Paloma is or isn't since this is my first year my opinion might change as I become a sophomore but that is my current view of Paloma.

    PVHS GOOD QUALITIES Librarian & ASB Teacher. PVHS DOWNFALLS The counselor was unaware of his duties and what the school offered. It is difficult to contact an actual person via phone and when you do they are unable to offer any real assistance. While on campus you can hear students using extremely foul language and being disrepectul to the staff and their peers. Teachers were texting and using cells during class time. Most disturbing is hearing parents discuss their concern regarding the rampant use of drugs amongst the students on campus. It appears as though a strict dress code may need to be enforced to build and instill character respect responsibility and accountability for both the students and staff.

    alright i have too say that paloma valley has its ups and downs seeing as it that we are the only school in riverside county that doesnt have a water polo teams or any other sport that requires a pool we still have some of the best athletics and acedemics around so coming here would be a great choice for a student and/or student athlete to make themselfs known all the way from the football team to the debate team oppose to other schools like vista murrieta or chapparel that illeagely recruit talent in the sports and acedemic activities that take away opputunities for your children so my advice is put your child at paloma because like our great football coach tells us if you want to make a success out of yourself you will have to work hard and persavere for your goals you wont be dissapointed GO PVHS

    If you are thinking of sending your child to this school....Run! Look into your options. This is a bad choice.

    i would never send my child to this school. Everyone here thinks there better then everyone no matter how mature you are. Very few people grow out of the stage. They have very few clubs and sports that any high school can offer although other high schools offer way more. It's a very small school it looks big from the outside but when you enter it only takes you about 3 minutes-5 minutes to get across campus which is good for the students since they won't have to run to their next class but it's also bad seeing as a big school usually has more classes to offer. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

    PVHS is a good school it allows ur kids to be around many people in an environment where many students have thigns in common the athletis programs are gfreat and the extracurricular activities need a little work yet they are still being worked on and the teachers are great and willing to work with you if u have any trouble ..although paloma valley high shcool it liek any tother school with the drama and the fights it has a lot of potential and your kid will enjoy being around the kids that are here!!!!!

    PVHS has some good qualities not great. Counselors are not informed enough about what classes are offered and most treat parents as second class citizens. The administration still needs a lot of work. They only say what a parent wants to hear and not the truth. If a problem arises with a teacher and your student be careful. The administration only sides with teachers and pacifies the parents. There still needs to be more extracirricular activities. I know they are trying but it still needs a lot of work.

    I'm surprised to find any decent reviews about this school. Administration seems to be lacking in any moral authority and the campus is filthy!
