Vandalia Community High School Reviews

I like all of my teachers at this school. Our school is about the same as most schools around here. I also love our band program, although we went from having 60+ participants in 2015 to having under 30 participants. We also have a small issue in our Physical Education program. Our school will not follow the state rules in this class. We also have problems with our lunch program. The cooks still fry food which is completely against state food rules. Other than these complaints I think our school is average.

Vandalia Community High School was pretty great in my opinion. They have a great community, and they are amazing when it comes to supporting one another.
I that at Vandalia Community High School we get to have harder classes and we are challenged. I also like that we get more interesting topics, and we get to have more of a say in what we want to learn.
