I went to VNHS for all four years. I was class of 2018. the teachers were great, I really love the diversity of the school. if I'm not wrong VNHS has one of the biggest diversity group in Los Angeles. VNHS is a magnet school, the magnets are math and science, performing arts, and medical. but we also had residents students. residents students are students that are not part of the magnet program. also, I was so happy that they had music ( vocal, instrument, band) available for every student. we even had an art class, cooking class, dance class, musical theater, tech crew, film, photography, and actors in action. for sports, we had tennis( boys and girls), basketball(boys and girls), volleyball(boys and girls), football, soccer(boys and girls), golf( boys and girls), water polo, swim team( boys and girls), baseball, softball, and cheer. the school also provides students with the Educare program, that program is an after school program that helps students with homework. at vnhs, we have a special program for those that need more help than others. as you can see, VNHS is a place where everybody can fit in somewhere.
