Vancleave High School has it's good's and bad's, but the bad's out-weigh the good. The teachers at VHS are mixed. There are the bunch that care, and the bunch that seem like they'd be better off somewhere else. Not naming them, but there's teachers that really just don't seem to care... Shame. The dress code is ridiculous. Sure, it comes from the school district, but it's enforced like crazy. A student can get ISD simply cause they weren't tucked in, or had the wrong color shirt/jacket/undershirt. Yeah, losing "quality" education cause of that is awesome, right? Especially when the logo on one's jacket gets them written up too. Having attended Vancleave, it was fun with the student body, but atrocious with the teaching. And just hearing now that students are forced to write essays where they cannot use certain words is absolutely crazy. If that is VHS trying to prepare their students for either college-world or working-world, it's not doing a good job by forcing this "curriculum" on students whom are accustomed to southern-twang. This is Mississippi, not California. Vancleave High School isn't a school I could recommend, especially to future students.
