I am happy my daughter joined Von Steuben High School. It is a great school. I'm excited about it and wish her the best. So far, after week 2, she is living it. Lots of homework but great experience.

this school is decent when it comes academically but the people here are druggies, constantly trying to sell to my child as i was told by him. there aren't enough extracurricular activities and the teachers seem to only care for the honors students and have drifted away from the regular students.

Hello I am a teacher at this school, and I have to say that I am very impressed.

Von Stueben Metro Science High School, in the beginning as a freshman i was excited. However the teachers suck the life out of you, they seem to truly not care whether or not you fail.

There is good and bad in every school, for our family it has been an excellent choice. Our daughter graduated, last year, and was very well prepared and is excelling in college.

I have a son who is currently a junior. We are very happy with the administration and staff at Von. From what I've observed, the teachers really want their students to succeed. Our son is getting a very good education and we are confident that he will be well prepared for college and beyond.

This school is tanking. It used to have a good reputation, but now they are only focused on helping the honors students and really have left behind the 'regular' students. The counseling department doesn't return telephone calls. Administratively, no one seems to know what anyone else does or even ...  Read more
