Vermillion High School Reviews
The main thing that I enjoy the most about Vermillion High school is the friendly environment and staff. I would not have gotten as far as I have academically if it weren't for my amazing teachers. They're always there if you need help with something and are always willing to spend one on one time with you if you need help. Another thing I enjoy is the athletics! I have a passion for volleyball and our program really lets me shine and, most importantly, have fun. I would recommend Vermillion High School to anyone that asks because of the friendly staff and amazing athletic programs.
Overall, Vermillion High School is just your ordinary high school. The education is pretty simple but almost too easy; teachers and faculty are very laid back. That's what I love most about our school-the teachers. Vermillion High School teachers love to connect with their students but also will remain fairly strict and teacher-like. I do wish a lot of things could change about my school. For instance, the bullying policy: the school district will say bullying is not tolerated, however, bullying occurs almost everyday, with no one doing anything about it. But all around, the school is decent; but then again, I'm a life long student of the Vermillion School district, so I have no other school experience anywhere else.
I first transferred here for my freshman year and the school has been very well with me. The reason why people give it bad reviews is because they are usually people with bad behavior. If you do what you're supposed to do, you'll do well and pretty much get along with everyone. If you don't, well that's your problem and you should fix it yourself before you get yourself in trouble. So pretty much this school has been good to me and hopefully can improve later on.
