I just graduated, i am from a foreigner country and there were people trying to help and some good teachers, but the administration sucks, really, they basically walk around talk to each other and that's basically it, some teachers do not know how to teach and won't do anything but send you to a different room for foreign students, i have to say that the person there does everything that he can do, but i mean, come on, some teachers only open their mouths to say to take notes during the whole year!!!
I am a student here at VBHS and I am a new student and my experiences here has been extremely unpleasant. I come from a small alternative setting at my old school, and they have done nothing to help me adjust. The guidance counselors are extremely rude. I am failing all my classes, when at my old school I had honors. They don't offer a Alternate program at this school and they do not offer me any extra help or any other program. They simply give off the impression that they do not care at all. I do not recommend this school to any student that needs the extra help to get by in school. They have no made me feel welcomed at all. The school may LOOK nice but the teachers are awful. You can tell they are only there for the pay check and don't want to put the extra effort into helping a student like me. I am looking into switching schools cause I simply can't finish my high school experience here at this school.
I'm a senior at VBHS, and have been here all four years. My experience has been very positive. The large AP/honors program has helped me push my potential. Great teachers. The technical programs (like TV production...love that class) are fun and effective. And strong sports teams! Go Fighting Indians!
ive gone to vero for all of 6monthes and i ove it... rock on vero!!! armed drill team and rotc are the bomb!!!
I like the school. Coming from CA from an area where schools were riddled with nasty gangs Vero is so peaceful and and the school seems just the way schools should be for children. I'm not crazy about Dr. Jones. he has gotten himself in more trouble with parents because he just does what he thinks is right before really looking into situations, and then realizing his judgement was wrong and passed to quickly. The school could use a different Vice Principal. That si my only complaint
I am a student here and i cannot stand this school. Yes this schools enviroment is crazy and it is hard to learn here. The whole ID things are out of control. They give you a detention if you dont wear them and that is just crazy enough. This school is out of control. I dont see how parents let thier kids go to a school like this.
The teachers are really great and really care about the students and are very pleasant. The Administration on the other hand are unprofessional and downright rude. My experience when in the Admin. office was I was kept waiting and they made you feel like you were bothering them. Why so many assistant principals? They walk around at dismissal time and never smile or acknowledge parents as they pick up their children. I think they should go back to school and learn interpersonal skills!
I'm a student here and can say that I absolutely hate it this school. Behavior in the classrooms is out of hand sometimes. Though teachers are good and what not, I can't learn in such an environment.
VBHS has gone downhill under principle Jane Hudson. The addition of too many Assistant Principles is just plain silly. The education you get is great but the atmosphere has really gone wacky.
Very good school. Guidance Counselors really help you and know who you are and have you take classes that will help you in the future rather than taking classes you won't need.
My experience at VBHS was a positive one. Now attending college, I reflect back to my high school years and realize how much I have benefited from VBHS. The support for our cheerleaders, band, and football teams from our community was amazing. The teachers at Vero Beach High School really care about the students, which made VBHS a great experience that has prepared me for college.
