  • Ok Obviously the reviews below mine have been written by immature high school students. I attended VS North High School from 7th-12 grade; graduated in 2007. This is a great school! Kids do not get bullied on, if that happens it is a very rare situation. Teachers are great! Except for some teachers that think they own the school like Ms. O'Leary. Other than that it is probably the best school in the area. I would actually want my kids to go there. VS South High School has a horrible reputation as does VS Central High School.
