As a student at Veterans Tribute, I have had a pretty good experience the last four years. At first it was fun, new, and fresh! My junior year, admin made really odd changes that students (and quite a few teachers) were not happy with. Though this last year, we got a new principal who has been giving the school a much more relaxed vibe, which more people are starting to like. I do wish there were an opportunity to focus on importatnt things that will prepare us for the real world, rather than have more importance on the numbers of the school and test scores, because we are people--very diverse individuals. Other than that, VT does a pretty good job doing various other things like preparing us for college or the public safety workforce. thnx for that i guess.

Best school ever! VTCTA is one of few schools in the country that focuses on preparing students for future careers in public service. In VTCTA students work with the Metropolitan Police Department, LV fire officials, lawyers, dispatchers, CSI, detectives, and emergency medical personnel. VTCTA is a five-star school. There are 812 students. I am one of the very few students who are a triple major at VTCTA; I am majoring in Criminal Justice, Forensic Science, and Law-Enforcement. I have been taught by specialists in the field and I have worked hands-on with them. The staff is wonderful. Teachers gladly invest their time in the students. For the past four years, my teachers have become people that I look up to and my motivators to accept a task at hand and to exceed at it. Everyone is treated with respect. We don’t have students that are bullied or laughed at, everyone is welcomed and we are all different in our own ways which makes us who we are.
Veterans Tribute CTA is a public safety and law enforcement school that focuses on the five majors that they offer, such being Law Enforcement, EMS, Dispatch, Criminal Justice, and Forensic Science. Veterans Tribute CTA also focuses on teaching students how to be professional in workplace environments and prepares students for college through their AP classes and college boot camp. They also help the students become more involved with the community by providing the students with volunteering opportunities. Overall, Veterans Tribute CTA is a great school that teaches students valuable skills that will be used in their everyday life both professionally and personally and helps students become more involved with the community.
