Yes Virginia is great school district for academics. Both my kids go there and I would recommend this school to everyone. However what does this school do for kids who are bullied and don't want to go to school? And the bulling is not done only by other students but by some teachers as well? It's hard as A parent to watch your child throw up everyday before school and know that there is nothing more you can do.

Virginia High School truly has the best academics on the range! Most of the teachers genuinely care about the students and push them to work hard. Even though many of the classes are hard students come out feeling like they have actually learned something. Music, arts, sports, and extra-curricular activities are a big part of Virginia. All students are strongly encouraged to be in something. Almost all of our activities are excellent! The building itself is older but the faculty work hard to make it look its best. Every classroom has brand new Apple computers and many have smartboards. Parents love Virginia! Every activity there are always many parents supporting their children and their classmates. So if you are thinking of attending Virginia, I would definitely recommend it!
