I like how Vero Beach High School always has activities going on. Whether it is a lacrosse game on a Tuesday night or a Key Club meeting right after school. If you love music then you are welcome to join band, chorus, or orchestra. If you like studying and being book smart then join mathletes or the science fair. If you are more of an athlete than there are over 20 different sports to choose from whether you are male or female. At Vero everyone fits in somewhere! Diversity is the one word that most describes Vero. With almost 6,000 students walking around campus everyday, there are millions of stories. As individuals we are different, but as a whole we are Vero Beach High School and I know that none of us would want it any other way.

VBHS is a great school with lots of caring/invested teachers, excellent athletics and tons of school pride! I'll miss being a student there.
I transferred to Vero Beach high during my senior year. Although I hadn't been there the full four years, I felt like I had. The teachers were amazing. I was able to catch up to the other students on the curriculum and maintain my grades. And let's not forget the cafeteria. There was about 7 or 8 different food categories with their own lines. Talk about a variety. The only downfall was the long walks to classes due to the construction. If I could do it all over again, I would've transferred sooner. I'm a proud fighting Indian!
