Open Quote Some of the teachers a very good, however if you have a student with special needs like my child be cautious of which teacher they get assigned. There are some teachers who flat out refuse to fulfill the accommodations of my daughter's IEP. In a few cases some of the teachers said that our casemanager never let them know about accomodations or that she never informed them of the IEP. Close Quote

Open Quote Excellent school with very strong principal and great teachers. Students understand they are there to get their education and are expected to conduct themselves as professional young men and women at all times. Leadership comes from the top and the school has consistently performed very well in it's first 4 years. In addition to having an excellent academic program, the VHS Warhawks' athletic teams have reached the state playoffs in several sports during the school's first 4 years. Close Quote

Open Quote Veterans High School is a new school in its third year of being open. Their test scores have exceeded all. The administration is one of the best in the county and the teachers do all they can do to help a student excel. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
