Champlain Valley Union High School Reviews

CVU is really great at offering niches for every student and presenting them with as many options as possibly so everyone finds something they love. I was really appreciative of how passionate my teachers were, but I'd like to see their college advising change. When I went to college I felt that I had no idea how to handle scheduling and I wished I had taken some different AP's in high school, like AP English. I think that students who know what they will study in college should be advised on AP's that will help them in their major (such as for engineers and other STEM majors, I suggest taking AP Calc, Chem, English and/or Physics so as to start ahead by not taking the basics during freshman year). Otherwise, academic advising in CVU is very helpful and informative!

CVU is a very inclusive and welcoming high school with lots of students from four adjacent towns. There are multiple different clubs, sports, and events to get involved in. CVU is very school spirited and a strong community. It is a great place to receive a high school education! One of the best in VT.
CVU has definitely helped define me as both a student and a person. There are so many options for classes to suit a student's interest. From computer aided drafting to cooking and eating well, CVU has it all. And, if they don't have it, students can enroll in the NEXUS program, dual enrollment through UVM, or one of the many tech programs in the area.
The teachers at CVU really seem to care about you, both as a student and a person. Every class has around 20 students or so, which provides for engaged group-learning, as well as personalized help if necessary. Teachers at CVU always encourage and help you to go the extra mile, and it always pays off. Teachers are always willing to meet outside of class to explain confusing concepts.
You cannot take a walk down a hallway of CVU without being acknowledged and greeted by a smiling face. Everyone in the community truly cares about others. Overall, students are extremely inclusive and respectful.
