My experience was greatly enjoyable, the atmosphere was safe and friendly, the classes offered made sure there was something for everyone. You could go to school everyday and see happy students and teachers. There wasn’t a student parking lot so parking could sometimes be an issue, but that was small compared to the rest of the experience. When I graduate I can say that I enjoyed my years and will miss the place and all the teachers and friends I made. But there’s a new school being built so I’m interested to see how it will turn out for future students. It will be combining with a school we have a large athletic rivalry with.

In my time at Virginia high school, I have always loved it. Everyone has been so positive and supportive of me and my fellow students. All of the teachers are kind, and helpful and have always pushed me to perform at my best. I have excelled in my classes especially history and English and my teachers I have had in these classes make it all the more fun. At VHS we host a wide variety of events such as sporting events, dancing, clubs, meets, etc. I always try and attend as many events as I can because I love to be involved in our school and the community and support my fellow students.
Throughout all of my High School career I have attended Virginia High School. I have enjoyed just about every second of it through the years. VHS is a very well put together and safe environment mainly because of the great people there. All of my classmates I have grown to be very close with and developed great friendships that will last a life time. The faculty are all very welcoming and caring. All the teachers are more than willing to get you the extra help you need. VHS also has many options to be involved with clubs, sports, music, etc. There are many activities to be involved in, inside and outside of school.
