Quite impressed with La Vernia Junior High. The students get along with each other (6-8). The kids on the sport teams help each other out. There ARE great teachers. The rest of the teachers are good, but could be more into their job. Seems like once the tests are over, so is the teaching with some. The parents WHO DO help are amazing. There ARE parents who do nothing, then complain about what is (or isn't going on). Those parents lack so much, there is no help for them. Kudos to the parents who DO participate. The VICE Principal is more of a leader than the principal.

Read up on this school district. Go to Examiner.com search La Vernia. Go to Wilson County News. We are still waiting on the investigation into embezzlement. Dr Harvey had been told about it, but all of those employees got reprimanded stead of a "thank you". Sadly, because of the nepotism and the fact that most of the school board members, administrators and law enforcement have connections and a loyalty of Doctor Harvey We need help, Can you please investigate, please help us. We don t know where to go. There is no one to go, please, please help us. We are tired and don t have much fight left. Teachers; We are scared and don t know if this is intimidation to keep us from talking or if we are being set up. Look, we have seen what happens when a staff member or teacher goes to the superintendent with concerns about these issues, said the first teacher. He immediately contacts the principal or the person who we have concerns about and that good intended teacher or staff is reprimanded. An investigation into expenditures from the Junior High School Activity Account is being undertaken, stated the unsigned letter from Dr. Harvey

It's a really nice school, LVISD offers alot! what ever you need they will give it to you, like if there is something that you think they should offer they'll give it to you. We got a new gymnasium and auditorium just because we didn't like our old gym. they have alot of money and the students are welcoming and nice, but if you get on some of the "mean" peoples bad side, they might spread rumors, but usually we can tell that they aren't true. the teachers are VERY nice! they don't just become your teachers, they become amazing friends! And for the students, they get some pretty cool freedom, like right when the last bell rings you can have your phone out,and in 8th grade you can leave campus during lunch. To sum it all up, this school offers alot, is very nice, and is....... AWESOME!!!!!!!!! :D
