My experience at the school has been decent since I've been there. I have not had much trouble with my classes or even with my peers. The staff are very helpful and friendly so it is very easy to come to them when you are in need of something. The teachers are very helpful and engaging with all of their students no matter what age. There is not much diversity at the school, so if that's what you are looking for in a school, don't come here. As far as learning goes, we learn a great deal of different things, even having dull enrollment classes as well. I believe that are doing a great job at preparing us for collage. There are many different clubs and activities to choose from so everyone can feel welcome and open to different things. The parents of the students are vert involved with the school when it comes to many different things like clubs, sports and other activities. The food at the school is average. It is not great but it is good nonetheless. There are many different resources

Varnado is a fantastic school that anyone would be lucky to go to. It may not have the glamour of some of the more well known schools, but I don’t regret any of the years I spent there. The faculty and staff really care about each individual student, and help each student to succeed in their own unique ways.
Teachers, staff are so so helpful. School clean. Diversity. Schedule is good I like being able to get out of school at 11:30a when you become a senior they make sure you are well prepared for your next step rather you go to a four year or two year college. Variety of clubs and sports to choose from. Overall a good school that’s located in smal rural community.
