Honestly, as a black girl at Vestavia, there is some slight racism from a few students, but I love this school. Since I came from a small town private school, Vestavia has helped me prepare for college, come out of my shell, and learn new things. With the wide selection of courses, clubs, and extracurricular activities, I am never bored nor ill prepared. If you feel different, which I did at first, you have to find friends that you have things in common with- they are kind of easy to find. They sometimes will flock to you. Sports are a really big thing in Vestavia and football season is to die for! All the teachers help you in anything you have a problem with and there's also peer tutoring as well! Overall I give my school an 8/10.
