  • To the parent complaining about her child attending VHS and seeing kids smoking pot or kissing in the hallway - this is 2009, and back when I went there over 10 years ago, kids weren't much different. Last time I checked, parents were responsible for their children's behavior and molding them to avoid being THOSE kids. I don't know a high school in the world where teenagers don't kiss, that's pretty unrealistic. That said, my experiences at VHS were actually predominately positive. I went on to college and grad school and my senior year in particular was a positive experience. The school offered me a lot of opportunities to express my creativity, I hope they can continue to provide kids with those types of resources.
