I love Vestavia Hills, and the school system is honestly really good. Some students may complain, but you really can't complain because going from kindergarten to senior year in Vestavia I truly believe that I am well prepared for college. There are so many opportunities to take college courses in the classroom, and throughout the whole experience teachers always try to push the students to excel, and it works.

Vestavia Hills managed to exceed my expectations because of its vast opportunities. They have numerous organizations to help the community and to also give students the opportunity to act more freely upon their passion, like Amnesty Club, Science Olympiad, Speech and Debate, etc. Both academic teams and athletic teams are greatly acknowledged throughout the students and faculties in the school, so there is diverse support for every team. The school also faithfully maintains a clean and safe environment to help provide the students with the best classroom environment. One of the best attributes of VHHS is the teachers. Generally, teachers care for their students and their education, and they are active in developing relationships with them to help their understanding of their students' conditions. VHHS is a unique school where I can learn something new everyday, and I can see academic and personal growth in myself through the years I have been here.
VHHS does an incredible job of allowing students opportunities to grow as individuals, while preparing them for a college education. Whether it be academics, extracurricular, clubs, or just normal classes, the teachers care for our well being, and they want us to succeed.
