The people here have no respect for anything or anyone there living in thier own little worlds and only think of what's good for them the only person who ik really cared about me is my coucelor mr.pham and my clique of 4 friends love them
We heard good things about this school when we moved to Orange but it has not lived up to our expectations. The standards of science teaching needs to improve greatly. The teachers seems to be comfortable in their positions and are satisfied with making sure the district requirements are met but learning is a lot more than just satisfying minimum requirements. In Physics a lot of the learning was from youtube videos and video taped lectures from the teacher -- we could do that home why we need to go to school for that? In geometry, it was the 1st time for the teacher who struggled with the material himself and was quick to blame the students when they did poorly. The counselor could definitely do better than just making sure the schedule is correct -- counselors need to inspire students to strive harder and do their best to reach their potential. Just treating this job as a 8 - 4 office job that brings in a paycheck will not breed enthusiasm in students.
The teachers at VP are amazing. If you reach out and show them you are partners with them in your child's education, they are there for you in any way to help your child succeed. The Principal and his staff are marvelous and supportive as well, as is the Counseling staff.
I am extremely disappointed in the disarray of the Villa Park high school aquatic center the pool is in desperate need of refurbishing and I do not think it is up to the parents to be part of a booster club to raise all of the money. The schools generally is well known for academics and it's high standards for teachers. However the school is in great Need of serious construction and refurbishing of ceilings that are falling down, bathroom fixtures that no longer work and kids get splinters by sitting on the wooden benches
