I am proud to say that i was part of the first gradating class from VPA! There are no words describe this wonderful school. VPA open its door about 6 years, and still going strong; for a school in the south bronx! What i like most about this school is that all the teachers and staff really care about the students, its only a school, but it is a family. Everything in the school is brand NEW, the library and classroom are state-of-the-art! Still to this day i keep in contract with some of my teachers. Overall this school have taught me sooo much, and i am proud to say that i graduated from this school. BEST SCHOOL IN THE BRONX! ** Class of 2009**
