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.

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. Read less

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
... Read more 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. Read less

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.

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.

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,
... Read more 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.

PVHS does not tolerate Bullying! Sometimes parents like to blame everyone but their own children. That is sad.

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.
... Read more 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. Read less

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

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. Read less
