Senior: For such a small school in a rural area, LVHS is a good school. Many teachers are friendly and willing to give extra help when I need it. My peers are all driven, well behaved individuals, & bullying isn't a major issue here. I never feel in danger when I am at school. Janitors and lunch ladies are super friendly too!
However, although I've been fortunate enough to have some of the greatest teachers in my school career, I have also had some of the worst. Some of my previous teachers have been judgmental and reluctant to help or answer questions. Some of the teachers are very biased and show favoritism, & most are lazy, neglecting grading for days or weeks, or giving packets instead of actually teaching. Many of my classes do not challenge me or my peers nearly enough for the caliber of education we are seeking in college. Food is mediocre & lacks variety. The school is almost entirely white, but solely due to our geographical area. Our minority students are not ostracized at all.

Niche User: I do not have a child at Woodberry, but our school’s squash team has played theirs on several occasions. Each time, whether home or visiting, I am incredibly impressed with how gracious, well-mannnered, and polite their players are. Winning or losing, they have a kind word for their teammates and opponents, and even parents. They carry themselves maturely and respectfully. I can’t speak for the academics, but whatever they are doing to build these boys’ character, well done!
