To start off, the band program at Vines is absolutely amazing! Alongside its award winning history, the music community of the band alone is inviting and supportive.
99% of the teachers here are absolutely wonderful and have always pushed and supported their students to achieve academically. All classes, besides those that are combined for freshmen and sophomores, have fewer than 30 students in them, creating a pretty ideal work environment and room for the students to have a relationship with their teachers.
Violence, bullying and drugs are seen at every high school, but Vines is a little bit different, because overall the school is safe and friendly.
Vines has a wide variety of clubs to participate in, such as National Honors Society, UNICEF, HOSA, and elective/extracurriculars such as Band, AVID, Theatre, etc. One of the best parts about the variety of clubs at Vines is the diversity of the students you come into contact with.

Vines High School is a decent school, however there are only a few things I like about it. I like the majority of the teachers, and how they have "block lunch". Block lunch is amazing and I think that all schools would benefit from having it. Block lunch is when the students get an hour total of lunch. There's A block (30 minutes) and B block (30 minutes), and the blocks are back to back. The students can choose if they want to have the full lunch to themselves or want to do tutorials in the block that their teachers are doing tutorials. Teachers have their lunch break on one block and then either tutorials or hall duty the other block. Block Lunch gives the students more opportunity to go to tutorials in the class of their choosing for longer periods of time, and at school so your outside of school activities do not interfere with academic success.
I believe that the staff is well respected by the majority of the student body. However, I believe with the new block lunch system that was implemented as of this past year has done some students wrong, as it's clearly and constantly stated that our new 66 minutes of block lunch is a privilege, not a right . In the past few weeks, there were multiple fights in the span of the few days, with only 14-16 out of the 1000 plus students involved. Why must the rest of the student body pay for a mere few people's misconduct, negligence, and arrogance?
