Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Senior High School Reviews

I had so many great experiences at VVS! I absolutely loved all of my teachers. They taught me a series of life lessons that have helped shape me into the person I am today. There are so many opportunities for leadership & extracurriculars. My only complaint, is that the athletics are appreciated, attended, and funded much more than the fine arts; music, art, and the drama club don’t receive enough funding, forcing them to fundraise on their own. However, the teachers in these departments have made my experiences worth while. Even with the struggles listed above, they strive to create a safe and sufficient learning environment. I’ve grown as a person more than I ever thought possible. If I ever had a question about homework, college applications, or anything else in between, I could count on multiple staff members to provide their wisdom. I’m very thankful for all the experiences and lessons I’ve gained from attending VVS and I will cherish the memories I’ve made forever.

Vernon Verona Sherrill Senior High school is average compared to other schools within the neighboring school districts. Vernon Verona Sherrill is a small rural high school with limited academics and sports programs to ensure maximum growth. The staff is very friendly and the teachers are usually available for extra help. The sports programs and coaches are behind the times and need to move out of the 1990's. Most coaches are there to absorb an extra check and boost their retirement benefits. If you have the right last name, you will get the most playing time over a truly better player who does not have the same last name. I am sure it is like this in most small schools. Politics always are an issue!
VVS was a great place to learn. All of the teachers are friendly and willing to help of you ask for it. Additionally, VVS is a very inclusive place. The stereotypical niches don't really apply at VVS. Jocks are in drama and music, music students partake in art classes, some of the smartest and "nerdiest" kids are part of soccer, football, and other teams. The special ed students are mixed into regular ed classes, and everyone is kind to one another. One thing I would change would be the distribution of finances to the departments. Recently, VVS built a sports stadium, and while beneficial to many, some of the money could have been spent on other things. For example some of the money could have gone to the music department to fix the auditorium, which has water leakage problems as well as a sound system that is well past time for replacement.
