This is a great school I have a senior and freshman in this school and im so happy with there teachers and staff member .This school has lots to offer, good programs for your child to succeed ,so its up to the child to want to succeed because the school offers it.And it is not true that there is fight every day ,they are fights once or twice a month but security & teachers take care of it fast (that's what my daughter told me when I asked her) ;I have nieces & a nephews that graduated from VMHS and have succeed with college degrees ; I have friends that what their kids in VMHS, so im a happy parent of 2 to have VMHS in my district area.

Fights go on left and right! The curriculum is horrible (doesn't follow what we are being tested on AND the curriculum is brand new?)! Classes offered are horrible not to mention the counselor's don't serve of much help. Management with pretty much anything (classes, schedule, fights,etc.) is horrible. I give it one star just simply because you can't give it a lower rating!

veterans memorial has become a sad school. There are fights almost every week and when you see the security guards, they are high fiving the kids who were in those fights. its truely sad. Just because somestudents are misbehaving doesnt mean the whole student body should be punished. It is sad to see that many students are given special treatment just because they are in athletics or have gottin in so much trouble it's "cool". i am so glad im almost out of that sad school.

The rating my not reflect the truly dedicated staff of teachers and administrators who are faced with challenges many other schools do not encounter on a daily basis. Given the obstacles that are sometimes placed in their way, VMHS still strives to achieve superiority in the lessons taught to their students.

There has been fights, mostly gang related. Students have called their parents during school hours in fear of getting involved. Students shouldn't fear going to school.

Excellent level of education offered to students. Guidance and support is far above average for students attempting higher education. Great opportunities available for students who are motivated.
