I have been very impressed with this school. I feel my daughter is getting a quality education.

I couldn't be happier with Veterans HS! The principal is very open to both parents and students. The guidance office is knowledgeable and efficient. Any of the teachers I have contacted have been quick to respond back. As a freshman many of my son's teachers sent out a broadcast email to keep the parents in the loop as the students settled into their class load.

My son was in the first graduating class at Veterans. It was a wonderful experience for him. He moved from Warner Robins High which was a traumatic move for most of them, but they adjusted and I think he was more than satisfied with the move in the end. Still a DEMON fan at heart!

This is a new school in Houston County with a growing student population. Overall the school is going in the right direction with its teachers, classes, and extra-curricular activities. There are still the typical problems with this school (as with any GA school) the curriculum (especially math). But if you have a better than average student, then the curriculum with not be an issue. I feel that the teachers want the students to learn, not just pass through, and nearly all the students are proud to be in this environment and create new school spirit and support. There are definitely exceptional teachers here and terrific coaches. THe principal and his assistants are very nice and cooperative so far. With community and parental support this school could definitely become Houston COunty's finest school.
