South Vermillion High School Reviews

Most teachers care about the students. They try to get the students ready for their futures, whatever that may be. Parents are involved with the staff and administration to better the educational system in this rural area. Although, education should be most important, sports is quite a huge deal in this area. Hopefully the school will keep, or maybe increase, its 3A star rating. The area is mostly rural and the busing needs to be improved. Some students have a long ride to and from school each day. Also some buses are very full.
Food at the school is not appetizing. Most days the protein is chicken with different sauces. The prices for these lunches are on the rise. A lot of the students are on reduced or free lunch from the state. Hopefully, the school system will be given more money to do more for the students.

Teachers are biased and don’t care about education. Your coaches are the teachers, and athletes have it easier. You can get bullied and no one will care unless you have the right name or connections. The only sport anyone cares about is football. I learned nothing in chemistry here.
South Vermillion High School was a fun and energetic environment. The work load was light and there were many extracurricular activities that one could join in. My main problem with South Vermillion was the lack of preparedness I felt for college. Most classes at South Vermillion you could get a high grade with vey little studying, so I had poor study habits that were a detriment to me at Purdue University. I graduated in 2016.
