The principal pushes her own political and lifestyle agendas in our school, where our kids just need to be learning common core.....not getting in the middle of her own personal crusades. Leave our kids out of your home drama.

Disgusted with the principal of this school. Regardless of her beliefs religious, political, etc, she should leave those at the door. She has hurt our school by picking who can give to our school based on their political and or religious beliefs, actually their personal beliefs, not them being discrimitory ...  Read more

My oldest daughter graduated from VHS several years ago and I have another child in VHS now. I have been happy with the teaching, classes offered including Honors and AP classes as well as music, drama and art programs.

Okay school, but the administration is overrun by people pushing controversial views. The principle, Val, bans things that are Christian and is a vocal proponent of gay marriage. If family values and the Bible are important to you, I recommend looking elsewhere.

Ashamed that the administration has turned it's back on Christian corporations, do you not feel you are offending the Christian children also? Political correctness is out of control.

I find the principal puts politics above the needs of students based on her ridiculous actions. Banning Chick-Fil-A even though they are quite generous to those in need, do not discriminate in hiring or serving others. I think she's a bad example for children.

Our school is horrible because our Principal, Val Wyatt does not have a functioning brain.

They've decided to ban Chic-Fil-A because they don't like the fact that they are religious. Given all the drugs and gangs, does this really need to be done? I don't want my child disciplined for eating Chic-Fil-A.

If your religion is that important to your child's education, then enroll him in a religious school. Bravo to Ventura High!

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
