The school looks nice but the teaching is not effective. bullying is under looked. As a student there, I feel uncomfortable and unsafe. I never really learned anything because my teachers were distracted by other students acting out who should of been taking care of.
We came here because we thought the academic environment would be worth it. It's not. There are entirely TOO MANY students at this ONE school. Kids literally cannot get to classe on time as the halls are just that packed. Their lunch period is broken into one class period divided by THREE. The students have 20 mins to get through too long lines, eat and get to the next class. I'm very disappointed.
Many trailer parks with trailer park kids go to this school. Many disciplinary problems that teachers and coaches allow to fester effecting the good students. Avoid this school at all costs.
My daughter is in her first year at West Point and is totally impressed with how well her Chemistry, Calculus and Physics teachers at SVHS prepared her for the US Military Academy. She is outperforming all of her classmates at this time and credits the excellence of the academic programs at SVHS for her success. We have another daughter who is a Junior at Smithson Valley who is maxing her abilities as well. The administration is very professional and responsive. The extracurricular opportunities are the best and the sports programs are literally the best in Texas. We had no clue what we were getting when the military moved us here 10 years ago. But the moment we saw the quality of the teachers and the first text message on my phone when our daughters scored below a 90 on some piece of homework or test we knew we had lucked out.
