Review Community High School District No. 128
Teachers are very engaged with students. Very enthusiastic. Academic subjects are challenging. Students very well behaved and have good manners. Very strong extracurricular activities. Good culture of inclusion. Very happy my daughter attends VHHS!
The school has a vast number of resources, there are plenty of computer labs, printers, and every student gets a Chromebook. There has never been a moment when I think to myself "I wish the school had ____". I am very thankful to have a school with this abundance of resources. There are so many clubs and activities that I had to choose only 4 because I knew any more than that would get me carried away. Great environment overall.
