  • Reviewed by Former Student on October 14, 2007
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • It was good, but when I was there from 2000-2007, Vanderhoof went through 3 principals . Ms. Sorensen and Mrs. Ponce are by far the best teachers and the art teacher is awesome. The food made me puke, but the chefs were nice. it was a good school, but too many retirements.
