My experience at this school was truly one to remember! Although it was cut short, I can sincerely say that I enjoyed every moment of it up until March 13th. The teachers, staff and administration really put their all into making this school the best place it can be. Everyone is like one big, close family. When I am older, I will be able to look back on my high school days and remember all the great times I had in those halls.

Vernon Township High school has been my home for the past four years. I have heavily participated in the music and wrestling program, along with being part of the robotics team, track and field, key club, and have been inducted into the national, Spanish, history and music honor societies. I have never encountered a teacher that did not help me to their highest capabilities or push me harder than I thought I could go. The school counselors have been essential in helping me with the college processes and some of the friends I have made there have meant more than the world to me. As a District, some decisions have been made in great haste such as changing the grades that reside in each school. But other choices like getting new chrome books have enhanced and enriched my education like no other school could. I am thankful for being able to experience Vernon highschool and all the fulfilling aspects that have helped me grow as a person.
Vernon Township High School is an average school. The majority of teachers genuinely care about students and want to see them succeed- i personally have made very special connections with some teachers, and i believe that this is what got me through high school with less mental breakdowns. The administration and rules however are far below par. During my time in the HS, I took part in a protest to prevent a specific person from assuming the role of principal, however every students' voice was ignored. The higher up administration cared much more about seeing your shoulders or knees than how well you actually performed in school and how well prepared you were for college. If you want to succeed in school and don't have the right teachers assigned to you, it is your own job to simply follow every rule and work hard for yourself, because the admin won't show the slightest bit of attention unless you violate a rule.
