BVNW is overall a very good school. Great facilities, very good counselors. Many activities for kids to choose from. High parent involvement. Only negative is way they handle alcohol abuse by students..particularly athletes. The have an offical position of "no tolerance" but it goes on with coaches knowledge. If you are a star then you tend to get away with things. And of course some parents are the "enablers".
