Verona Area High School is a diverse and understanding institution, striving to meet students where they are at no matter their background. Teachers often go out of their way to ensure that students succeed, with the amount of resources they provide astounding in nature. Furthermore, the student body strives to raise awareness about and accept minorities among it, doing so through various means such as the Multicultural Leadership Council and our annual Multicultural Showcase. This showcase not only celebrates racial and ethnic minorities but also the LGBTQ+ community among us, taking time to truly appreciate our differences and encourage cooperation among everyone. My time at this institution has been enriching, to say the least, and I look forward to viewing its future growth.

I enjoy how kind and understanding the teachers are. I also enjoy How accepting this school is in regards to the LGBTQIA+ community. However they lost two stars because they are overly controlling and they choose favorites. They are overly controlling as in they reject ideas from students that don't need to be rejected, they also are very controlling in regards to electronics. They don't care what you might be doing on your electronic device (personal or given by the school), unless they tell you to take out your electronics, they will repeatedly stop class to tell you to put away the device. This wastes class time and it seems unreasonable because they don't know what the device is being used for. They also choose favorites. The "popular" kids often get away with more things, get many more exceptions, and teachers are very hesitant to take action if one of these "popular" kids is bullying others.
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.
