19 Parent Reviews for Vernon Township High School

I am currently a junior at this high-school and for prospective "applicants" or parents thereof, I highly do not recommend this school. As far as academics, this school can offer a rudimentary outline in all four core subjects: Math, English, Science, and History, nothing more. AP subjects are offered ...  Read more

I've went through the Vernon district my whole life and am currently a sophomore in the high school. All the teachers are great and do all they can to help their students excel, there is a lot of different classes for every subject you could imagine and lots of AP classes and extra curricular activities. ...  Read more

My two children have attended Vernon schools for the past 11 years and they love it. We have had nothing but positive experiences with the teachers and staff. This is a great community and it shows in the school system.

The High School athletic coaches for football and basketball are terrible. Favoritism runs rampant regardless of the students athletes abilities. Rules of sportsmanship, respect and fair play do not apply to the coaches here, and the A.D. looks the other way. These coaches do this just for the stipends ...  Read more

The athletic programs, particularly boys football and basketball are sad. The coaching is pathetic. We attended a boys ...  Read more

I don't know what happened to the kids whose parents gave bad reviews here. I would guess that they would have the same "problems" anywhere. And some people complain all the time, usually they don't do anything either. The bottom line is you have to take the initiative to get the most out of any school ...  Read more

Fights, drug deals in the hallways, & a principal that likes to handle things 'in house'. When the county does a drug sweep, they need 2 buses just for this school. Last year a kid overdosed in class. Another was thrown through a window during lunch. This is a rural community. If you are a diligent ...  Read more

I love this school and all of the extracurricular activities it offers. Great teachers and a fun environment.

As a student at Vernon, I can't help but be a little upset about the things people are saying about it. The teachers are very good at what they do, and wouldn't have been higherd therwise, because there are rules and guidelines set in place for the selection of new teachers. If a kid hangs out with people ...  Read more
