I think Verbena is the best school in the county. The teachers are helpful, The football and Band are very talented, and the campus is always clean and a great place to want to come and learn. Moving here was the best thing We ever did!

My oldest son in 6th grade love VHS. It is a small school with great teachers and administrative workers. I graduated from a big highschool in Montgomery and I am so glad my son doesn't have to go there. The teachers at VHS are very helpful to the students and parents.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) to test high school students in reading, math, language, biology and social studies. High school students must pass the AHSGE in order to graduate. The AHSGE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to pass the test.

The different student groups are identified by the Alabama Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
