I love this school almost as much as my high school boys. This school has made them both very responsible, but boy-o-boy do they stink! Pe-yew!

I have a total of 5 children who have and/or are attending. I do agree with some of the points that others have listed. The sports being one of them. Yes, Vermilion is a small town but they do have some talented children that just can't be scouted out because of the lack of coaching ability. The football coach makes the same plays every damn time. I would think that after losing so many years in a row maybe they might want to mix it up and maybe throw the ball to more than your favorite seniors on the team. The new elementary school I will admit is impressive however when you take a look at the city as a whole it just doesn't fit. We have an outdated super inflated grocery store chain, an outdated child care center, and an outdated bowling alley. There is nothing for the kids to do. They could have put money into one of the other buildings to make them up to par. The computers are a complete distraction and even though they are nice the kids are allowed to visit way too many websites.

There is no recruiting for sports because the coaches are just ridiculous and stick with favorites, but what are they going to do when those favorites graduate? Oh yeah, complain. Because that's what they always do. Compare and complain.

This school has no strong academic programs at all, inflated lunch prices, what else is there?

BEWARE! My family moved here from Missouri and were not aware of the changes being made to the schools. K-2 are together in one building, which is fine.. but they combined 4th-7th in the middle school and put the 8th graders in the highschool. I was told it was because of "low attendance" and budget cuts, yet each child from 7th to 12th grade just received a Macbook laptop this year, which has proven to be NOTHING but a distraction to the children. My daughter who attends the highschool began to have some behavior/academic issues, and I was treated like a nuisance by the "guidance counselor" and I use that term loosely, and got very little response from the teachers and administration until I contacted the Board of Education. To make matters worse, my son needs some additional help with reading and the school did nothing but drag their feet on follow through and putting together a plan (at my initiation, NOT theirs). Now, because of the poor quality of the education we have experienced so far, we have to consider moving again after just moving cross country earlier this year. A complete tragedy of a school system. I would NOT recommend it for any family.

My children are very happy and educated students. I am very satisfied of what they are doing to the building also.

I graduated from VHS 5 years ago, and I am considering sending my children to Vermilion schools. I had an overall good experience in the Vermilion school system. Since it isnt a huge town or school, everyone pretty much knew everyone, which was nice. The main negative thing I can say is that when it comes to any kind of sports or extra curricular activity, the schools are very political. I saw a comment saying how good the soundsations etc are, and this is true. But its also true that it takes talent to get into these programs, as well as being part of a wealthy, known family. If you don't, you better cross your fingers to get past the tryout process.

I believe the principal is very nice and careing. He is he rest why i am a great student and did so great all four years at this high school. He believes in all his students and you are just probly a parent who dont know much at all and your student probly gets in trouble and the principal did he job. unlike most prinicpal in our area

Could do better to get all kids involved in activities, much division and 'clicks' among students. I did well there but was introverted and never felt a part of anything, now my oldest is a student and feeling the same way and he is special needs to boot. Principal needs to learn to take kids aside to encourage them (not browbeat) to do well. My principal was a real 'buddy' type of person, much loved and respected, not like current principal who is hateful much of the time. He rules by intimidation and i worry my quiet kid could never go to a guy like that if he needed to.
