Vassal Lane Upper School Reviews

This school was incredibly poor for the two years I attended it. Teachers didn’t care about students and students didn’t respect authority. The school programs were pretty horrible. The cafeteria food wasn’t as bad as I’ve had and the kids were nice. It seemed like the school tried to create a welcoming environment, so good on them. I felt like the two years at this school though, were the two I struggled the most with both reading and math. Teachers didn’t even know what they were teaching us most of the time. I made some great friends though :-)

There is too much racism in the school. Students should feel accepted and protected, not turned against by their classmates over problems they believe are important. There should be more learning about people of color in the curriculum.
