Based on my experiences with Verona Area High School their educational system is very effective towards my success. Also, they provide many resources, which helped me develop my English and reading skills that are increasing dramatically over the years. All the teachers there are super friendly and kind towards me and other classmates. They provide many opportunities that many other school districts do not provide. Verona also provides tons of clubs and organizations that have been very interesting to participate in. The school’s spirits is outstanding and there’s a sense of belonging. I have a very good friend group ever since elementary school like many other students have. Also, Verona is very inclusive and is very diverse and many cultures that individuals expressed throughout the school. This also connects with the one time school assembly called the “Multi-Cultural Showcase” where students and staffs are able to express their identities and cultures towards the school.

Verona is a great school with a strong community. All of our students are deeply rooted in Wildcat Pride, partaking in and/or supporting our many sports teams and academic clubs. There are also many academic opportunities at VAHS, including more than 10 AP classes, Planet Lead the Way courses in engineering and medical sciences, dual credit courses, and apprenticeship opportunities. Verona does not have honors courses, but there are plenty of other opportunities for students to academically challenge themselves starting sophomore year. There are not very many advanced academic opportunities for freshman. Verona's administration is not the best, but it is functional and still has the students best interests at mind. We do have some amazing teachers here, and as for facilities, Verona might have the best in the state of Wisconsin now that we will have a new high school building in Fall 2020.
Verona Area High School puts in a lot of effort to make the school better, which I appreciate. They are working on more equitable policies and practices, but they still have a long way to go. I think they could work on teachers being accountable for putting in place anti-racist practices. I think they could build more community, especially at the high school level. In terms of success, they have great academic classes and many extra curricular opportunities. However, they could work on making high level classes more accessible and welcoming for students of color.
