I went to Venture High school from 2014 - to 2018. This was the best school I ever went to. The chart/data does not accurately reflect the experience of the students there. I know I can't speak for everyone, but for me, it felt like this school was a family. The teachers are amazing and I had so many favorites. I honestly love Venture and I hope to visit soon.
