I liked the sense of community at VUHS. You can tell your teachers care about your learning. I feel as though it is too small though. There's a lack of diversity and not as many opportunities for students to branch out. I graduated in 2018, so I am a recent alumni. Now, I am at college, and I feel as though VUHS really prepared me for college. Don't send your kids to VUHS if you want them to be a successful athlete because the athletics aren't the best; however, if you're looking for a decent school to send your kids to (that's public), I highly recommend it. Also, the music program at VUHS is great! We also have an outdoor program called Walden that is great!

I had a great experience at Vergennes. It is a very kind community with lots of clubs to get involved in. If you do one thing at Vergennes, you most likely do it all; the star athletes are often the leads in the musical. I like this aspect because it produces well-rounded students. If you want to challenge yourself, there are classes to do so but at a small school, it is difficult to make your schedule fit. Teachers are usually invested in your success and there is a strong support network to get you through. While our facilities are wonderful - boasting the best gym and soccer field in the state - there are often roof issues that result in water damage. There is little to no diversity at the school, but that seems to be changing.
I really enjoyed attending Vergennes Union High School. It's a very small school, with 500-600 kids from 7-12 grade. The small atmosphere allows for students to know everyone in their grade, not just a few people here and there. I also enjoyed the activities VUHS put on. Peace One Day is a big event we put on every year on September 21st and everyone loves that. We eat fresh local bread, Ben & Jerry's ice cream while listening to people give speeches about peace, listening to music and socializing. It is a very fun event especially when it's sunny outside. So overall, my time at VUHS has been pretty average.
