Vashon Island High School Reviews

I had an amazing four years at VHS! The classes range in difficulty, but most core classes, especially APs, are pretty challenging (but manageable). I wish we had been offered more AP classes and electives, but there aren't enough students to fill them all. However, having 100 people in your class is beneficial, because you can get one-on-one help from teachers and you can get to know them pretty well (i.e. good recommendation letters). The social aspect of VHS is very inclusive. The academics at VHS are held with pretty high regard in comparison to other high schools in the state. About 25-30% of my class were commuters from off-island. The school was rebuilt about two years ago and the architecture is beautiful. At VHS, classes may be difficult, you'll have a lot of homework, and tests will be worth a large part of your grade, but it prepares you well for college and sends graduating students out of the school, ready to take on their futures.
Review Vashon Island High School
Vashon Island High School has great options for after school activities. There is a wide variety of sports for those who like athletics, and options such as theatre and debate for those who seek other options! Our clubs, such as Outdoors Club and Amnesty International, provide field trips and real-world experience.
Many parents of students at Vahon Island High School watch the movement of the school under a microscope, which can be a good or bad thing! I feel that they can be extremely competitive about their child.
