At Venus High School my experience was fun with many ups and downs. The environment was fun and happy when things went on, for example pep-rally days. Pep-rally days were great because around school you would see the students walking around wearing our school colors. Spirit days were always my favorite. I usually always had a smile on my face at school but teachers seemed to not like that. The teachers at VHS were quit to make sure you weren't having fun. I get it, schools about learning but a little fun never hurt anybody. Overall VHS was the best experience of my life because no matter how boring the classes were the vibes there were awesome!

Venus High School did well in educating students of the basics of core concepts. However the school lacked in preparing students for college due to the lack of AP courses available. The best part of the school is the programs such as Upward Bound, which would prepare students much more of the college experience. Overall, Venus is a good school for parents seeking to get their children through school easily.
Venus High School has a relatively smaller than average student body but easily delivers an above average experience. Friendly classmates coupled with teachers that often offer one on one help, make learning here at VHS easy for anyone.
VHS also hosts a number of after school tutoring programs that help out struggling students There is a welding program that of course, teaches welding, but also offers free OSHA 30 training certifications.
Overall an excellent place to learn and become ready for further education.
