Strong in liberal arts but weak in STEM. Use of technology is weak but looks like there is potential to improve with new leadership changes and fund allocations. Declining/Flat enrollment and relatively small number of students per grade (@170 or so in an average year) make this a good school for student extra-curricular opportunities. SAT AP and 4-year college matriculation have plenty of room for improvement. AP exam costs are paid for by the district. If state school are not in consideration for your student then seek out Wyomissing or even WIlson. The class of 2013 was competitive at the top end at SV but wait to see class performance on the whole. For a small district they do offer Chinese language instruction but with nowhere near the rigor of their Spanish instruction. The School Board of Directors is weak and in many ways the Employee/Employer lines are reversed. This may be a result of the previous leadership and perhaps the new leadership will be managed properly.

One of the best schools in the county. They have great teachers and sculpt their students into great people.
Im a student at SV and the course work is challenging and a wide variety of courses are offered. However the administration leaves something to be desired. The administration always does 'what looks good' instead of 'whats right'.
It's a pretty good school. I'm in 11th grade and it's my first year here. So it's good.
The quality of the academic programs is outstanding. There is a nice variety of classes to choose from. There is a nice selection of music classes art classes and sports and other extra curricular activites for students to choose from. Parent involvement could be higher but on the other hand it could be lower too.
