Vestavia Hills High School Reviews

Overall, I had a pretty good experience at Vestavia Hills High School. I took some harder classes and I would say that I was very ready for classes like English 101 or US history in college, however, since I am majoring in Biomedical Science, I did not have the correct study skills for classes like general and organic chemistry. Vestavia Hills High School prepared me in areas like writing, however, I was unprepared in areas like test taking and studying. Additionally, I want to praise the music department at Vestavia Hills High School. I took many band classes throughout my four years at Vestavia Hills, and I decided to continue doing band in college because of it. It was one of the best decisions I made coming into college, and I have Vestavia Hills High School to thank for shaping me into the musician I am today.

The education at Vestavia Hills is amazing! However, the atmosphere is unwelcoming and full of cliches.
From Otaku Club to Fishing & Archery Club, Vestavia Hills High School offers a niche for everyone who enters. Not only is VHHS a community, but it also has challenging and rewarding academics taught by fun teachers. Go rebs!
