Vail Academy and High School is a small K-12 school that is the smallest of its district. Despite its size, it is an amazing school. The academics prepare even middle schoolers for college! Parents are involved in this school, and the culture is great - everyone knows everyone.

Being in a small k-12 school has its great opportunities, like teaching younger students about certain subjects, participating in clubs with younger and older students, and feeling the diversity of age.

Unfortunately, age is the only diversity that seems to be in this school. Being of Hispanic descent, I notice that there is a predominately white populace in the school. But, there is no racial separation or indifference at all, even with the unequally distributed population. Everyone seems to be friends with everyone.

Overall, I recommend this school to all. It is an excellent education and prepares one for college. The school goes above and beyond and I am happy to be apart of it.

Overall Vail Academy & High School was great, I took all AP course load and the work load prepared me to manage my time and to complete tasks early if possible. The teachers are always willing to help out where they can and support the student through anything, as alot of my teachers would guide me on what to do and how to go about doing things relating to college, work, general concerns, etc. A student really has to try to not get involved at this school since the school is small and generally there is always a few students who try and reach out to everyone and if the student doesn't get reached by another student chances are a teacher will reach out and try and get them out there.
My daughter is enjoying Elementary school right now. They have clubs for programming and Arduino's that keep her engaged. She is in a class with fellow students that push each other further than the class demands, this I appreciate. Also they are well balanced with specials of Art, Music, and STEM to keep her learning for a good foundation of life.
