This school was my all-time favorite school I've ever gone to. It has a great learning environment, the students are easy to get along with, and the staff is there to help whenever needed. I miss this school immensely, and wish I could go back.

Two kids through VHS. We are happy. VHS provides the opportunity for kids to excel. Kids have to choose to take up the opportunity. Some great teachers, but you have to watch out for a few real losers even in the honors program. Principal Wyatt has been a major cause of cleaning up student appearance ...  Read more

Ventura Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
