This is a really amazing school. It is a place where the teachers and staff make high school less scary and easier for the students. You can tell that the majority of the students actually care about their students, want them to do well, and help them in every way they can. I have been at a different school where the teacher's didn't care about their students at all, and would let many of them fail. This is not CVU. CVU has a very good freshman program called "core houses" and it makes the transition into high school much easier for freshman. CVU school spirit is very good and athletic events are very popular. However, the arts and drama departments are not well recognized and their events not well attended by the student body. The cafeteria has very healthy options, although it is pretty expensive. CVU is overall an amazing school with awesome teachers. On the contrary, CVU does have problems with town stereotypes and cliques. There are a lot of expensive brand obsessions (Frye boots, Lulu Lemon leggings, Hunter boots, etc) and if you do not wear these you are looked down upon. This is common in all high schools, but definitely preset here as well. By far the best high school in Vermont.
