  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on December 28, 2009
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Sun Valley is a great school, if you are one of those students who never make a mistake. If you aren't like 99% of us, then its not a good school for you. They do not give out second chances. The teachers are great for the most part, but the administration could care a lot more than they currently do. These are kids who are at a crucial and confusing part in their lives.
