CVHS has tons of opportunities for all students interested in pretty much anything. Don't have what you like? Start a club about it! Don't particularly get along with your teacher and like how they're teaching? Ask for a course swap! Overall, CVHS is a very good school. If you ignore some of the flaws, ...  Read more

I have attended a total of 6 public schools (2 high schools) before I graduated last year, and have lived in 4 different states. From my experience, CV was by far the best. I was on the volleyball team all 3 years I attended, participated in several art classes, was part of prom committee, and was able ...  Read more

We chose CV when relocating to the area three years ago, after an extensive search of high schools in a 15 mile radius of my employment. We were not disappointed in any facet of my daughter's education or extracurricular endeavors and would make the same choice again, without reservation. I am ...  Read more

My kids graduated from CV and went on to college. I am ranking the school with two stars to honor the music program, the small handful of teachers who really care and excel at their jobs, the number of course offerings/options and the opportunities to pursue AP work. Areas that needed vast improvement ...  Read more

CV high school has a great facility, but the student population is out of control, over 2500 students. They need to split into 2 high schools. Too many students that get lost in the crowd, unless they are a stellar athlete....but with so many kids, good luck getting on a team! And although they are ...  Read more

I am very disappointed with CV HS. If your child has any special needs as far as alternative ed or anything else, they do not put him or her as a priority. My son suffered for years because he got involved in drugs at a very young age. His math is seriously at a much lower level then they will admit. ...  Read more

I have always said that Cumberland Valley High School offers a prep school education at a public school price. Everything a student needs to prepare for the best colleges in almost any degree area is available at CVHS, including many Honors and AP classes. I found teachers that are truly caring about ...  Read more

I am so frustrated with the life skills department with this school. My son who has special needs is not learning much. They go on so many field trips, which all cost money, spend too much time on certain areas instead of teaching them job skills or independent living skills. If you have a special ...  Read more

CV is a great school with many different courses to choose from. They have a lot of advanced courses and a great athletics program. I would say that the advanced courses are very rigorous and require a lot of homework. It's not uncommon for my daughter to work on homework from the time she gets home ...  Read more

Most of the reviews on the school seem totally biased to the students' personal experience at CV. Every school has it's problems. Cumberland Valley has the largest program of studies in the area as well as all kinds of different teachers. There is a level for every student and when it comes to academics ...  Read more
