Valparaiso Community Schools Reviews
Valparaiso High School has great teachers and coaches, who are always there for students. I am personally still adjusting to the school. Valparaiso is undergoing construction to improve the our learning environment. Everyone is very active in clubs or sports, which is why I love meeting new people at school!
There are many ways and opportunities to succeed at VHS. However, if you start in track two or three classes, it is extremely hard to move up to better classes that prepare you better for college and beyond. Guidance Counselors are nice, but have really no idea about what they are doing and what some classes actually are. Construction is shit. There is deafening sounds of drilling in the classrooms and construction workers that wander into classrooms. Not to mention that some fire detectors are turned off because of the constant false alarms because of construction dust.
The teachers at Valparaiso High School are very sub par. There are a few here and there that go out of their way to ensure their students achieve their goals and aspirations, but not many do. The guidance counselors are typically busy with other matters to attend to and are not resourceful most of the time. Overall, the courses are pretty good and the Porter County Career and Technical Center is an amazing place for hands on experience in the field of work you're planning to go into.
