I would not move out of the BVHS attendance area. This school has been amazing for my kids. Excellent climate for learning--goes above and beyond to make kids feel a part of a very special school.

I went to Blue Valley High School and I graduated with a lot of knowledge. The teachers and faculty helped me to reach far beyond my potential because they cared. I was involved in choir, chess club, and tennis, and they all benefited me well, but there was nothing like the education I received. I ...  Read more

Just an excellent school system. Blue Valley High school is everything you could want for your child. Our sons have attended both public and private schools, but we have decided to keep them in this public school because of the outstanding teachers, challenging curriculum and the vast # of extracurricular ...  Read more
