I think Vidalia High School is a wonderful school to attend. I attended four years here and I wouldn't trade any school for it. The teachers are very helpful, especially Mrs. B. Fulton and Mrs. Bowen. I took College Prep Plus classes, and the classes prepared me for the college life. Thanks VHS!

I went to this school for the full four years of my high school career, and I loved it. The teachers are great and they offer any kind of extra help that is needed and they care about their students actually learning the material insted of just throwing it out there for the students to fend for themselves. There are plenty of extracirricular activities to keep the student body busy, and although academics is a very important priority at this school, athletics is a big part too. I just graduated this year(2004)and I would recommend anyone to bring their child here because Vidalia Comprehensive High School is the place to be.
