I have attended Venture Prep for seven years. Throughout the years the school has experience change--good change, of course. In the recent years, our principal has tried her hardest to make our high-school as normal as possible; due to our small size classes students are able to have more one-on-one time with teachers. Relationships between student and teachers are strong. Teachers are always available to help, and they never allow a student to fall behind. Because of the small community found in Venture Prep, many parents are involved in the safety and well being of the student body. The bond among students is strong; students are always looking for ways to help each other and be involved, one way or another. As a whole, Venture Prep is a well-rounded school because of its size. Teachers and students are involved in the community and with eavh other in a postive manner.

My experience at Venture Prep was amazing. I'm glad I spent 2 years with this school. The staff and teachers were everything you could've asked for, we all felt comfortable with each other and were a huge family. The teachers helped me finish 2 years strong, I couldn't have done it without them. I'm glad I chose this school, my experience was amazing.
When I first went to venture prep how there was a closeness between teacher and students. My child told me it felt like a second family because she could trust the adults she would be seeing and inyeracting with for 8 hours. The only thing I would want to change is how they aren't as sport oriented as other schools and that was something my daughter was looking forward to in high school, all the home games and football team stuff.
