This school deserves it. Out of all the schools i've been too and have seen this school is the best. They really deserve it!

This school is ok in some parts. But the students here like to bully alot. This is not ok. Also the teachers are ok they are good teachers me do not. Last thing all the basketball players never get into trouble because they treat them like gods and that is unfair.

I went to VCHS for 2 yrs. Unfortunately I wasn't able to graduate there because I went back to Philippines. I love this school, and everything about it. Because there are only a number of students in the school, our teachers were able to really focus on us on our studies. I miss everything about this school, and I hope to visit it again someday.

I couldn't be more pleased with VCHS. The current principal is outstanding and the staff, for the most part, is excellent.

I graduated from VCHS in 1999. In May 2004 I will receive two bachelor's degrees as a Fulbright grantee, Presidential scholarship recipient, and member of two national or international honor societies. I attribute much of my success as a student to the teachers and staff at VCHS. The teachers are always willing to support a student's desire to learn information beyond that found in the normal curriculum. Don't be fooled by the small numbers. The teachers truly care about their students and will put in extra effort to see them succeed. Please don't pass by this school just because it is small--the intellectual resources that can be found there are definitely equivalent to, if not superior to, those found at larger high schools.

Unfair discipline and bias judgements are too common. Too much stereotype ideas and a lack of extracurricular activities. School does not have a music program, however the theater and art programs function well.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the High School Proficiency Examination (HSPE) to assess high school students in reading, writing, math and science. The HSPE is a high school graduation requirement. The HSPE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
