I love this school! This is gonna be my second year in it and so far everything is going very well. The staff and administrators are very helpful and kind. The teachers always put their students first and answer all questions. If you ask for extra help before or after school from teachers, they’ll be more than happy to help. There are many clubs about giving back to our community, accepting each other, and other fun clubs.

The thing that stands out to me the most about my time at VAHS is the teachers. They seem to really care about the students' grades and academic goals, while also caring about students' mental well-being. The majority of teachers really try to make sure that their students understand the material and are more than willing to put in extra time to help their students. They encourage their students to take AP classes, which has created a school culture where it seems like most students are enrolled in at least one AP class. Both the teachers and students at VAHS are inclusive and accepting of all and bullying is not really a common occurrence at VAHS. As a student there, I felt very safe. VAHS also offers many clubs and sports to its students, and the sports are well funded for the most part, although some of the less popular sports such as gymnastics or girls' lacrosse have very little funding.
VAHS is a good high school that offers more than 12 AP courses and several dual credit courses with the local universities in the state. The school also offers Youth Apprenticeship Program. The school has good sports team. We have some really good teachers here at high school. The one change that I would like to see is more support for academic clubs by our school. We receive very little funding for activities like history club, model united nations, Debate clubs ect. Even after qualifying in nationals we were unable to go to DC for the finals.
