Vacaville High School Reviews

All Categories
Vacaville High school is a rather mediocre academic institution. It’s facilities are in adequate condition. Some areas haven’t been touched by a janitor in years, but other areas are often kept tidy. The bathrooms for example, consistently contain multiple articles of trash inside of the toilets and urinals. The teachers at Vaca High are just plain old normal people. In the more advanced classes, teachers often find themselves rushing to squeeze multiple lessons down to single ones, so they are able to say that they have taught a particular topic to their class. Overall, Vacaville Highschool provides an education that is not necessarily top-of-the-line, but it is a place that can provide you with the knowledge and skills to move on to the next steps in your life.

Vaca High has a lot of school spirit and enthusiasm from teachers, students, and the community. It does not have particularly good academic resources, but it is possible to make opportunities for yourself! There are very kind and earnest teachers, coaches, and administrators.
Vacaville High School is well-versed in both its academics and it sports programs. The administration is constantly working to improve and better our school in all areas.we have many different sports programs, the most prominent being the football program and the wrestling program. There are many different creative outlets and extensive opportunities to take advanced placement classes
