My daughter will be graduating in 2010 and I am so thankful that will I won't have to deal with this school anymore. I don't feel they should have a dress code. It doesn't make them better students.

I was a 1999 grad. from WVW and spent my entire education in the school district. How many times did I ask my parents to home school me because of WVW? One too many! High School, was the worst.
