My son is a new student to the Montgomery County Public school system. Overall, I have to say Seneca Valley has several teachers who take pride in what they do.

Driving around the area, and seeing students leave the school, I'd have to say that this place was pretty "multi-cultural" . . . certainly dominated by a non-Caucasian population. If that's what you want . . .

My daughter is now a freshman at Seneca and I think the school is ok so far. I agree with the other postings that Seneca being such a diverse school it serves a excellent staff. Now if I can only get the school to give students textbooks.

Seneca Valley's staff does a great job in a very diverse community. My youngest son will be a Freshman this year at the school and I feel confident that he is in good hands. This is based on interactions I have had with staff at the school. Like most schools in MCPS, it does great with high achieving ...  Read more

Excellent school! Seneca Valley is a bright spot in an otherwise dismal community. The new principal is fantastic. The administration and staff are student focused and results driven. We are very happy with Seneca Valley High School. Unfortunately, the surrounding community is dangerous. Crime ...  Read more
