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.

Vancleave High school has the nicest environment to grow up in. It's a relatively small school. Everyone is nice to one another.

I graduated from Vancleave High School in 1987 and think that it is a great school to attend. My family and I live in George County but I work at Vancleave High School so my children can attend there. Vancleave High School has a really excellent staff that cares about their students. Everybody works together to help the the students prepare for college or the work place. It is a great school and I highly recommend VHS to anybody. Sarah Taylor
