What I like most about Valley International Academy is that the teachers are really connected with the students. The students and teachers know one another really well and are always available to their students.
The small class size, the interaction with teachers, and the close-knit community have allowed me to grow as a student and a person. I was shy when I first arrived at the school, but the acceptance I felt from my teachers and classmates allowed me to blossom. I am a much more confident, well-rounded student and person because of my experience at VIA.
Applying for colleges obviously can be a stressful task. Due to the small population, graduates can easily approach our resourceful counselor Mrs. Filios. As a senior, I sincerely appreciate her patience and time. She’s informed me of many resources regarding my interest and has answered my questions. With her support, I successfully submitted my applications and supplemental materials in time.
Coming to the United States and being a student in an American classroom has really helped improve my English. I feel like I have learned a lot and have made some very good friends.
I have become a stronger student since coming to VIA. I’m a better learner and listener. Learning in a small class setting has made learning and focusing easier for me. As a person, I have learned to value my ideas and thoughts on subjects because in a small class I feel heard.
