VMS has several teachers that let the student athletes get away with anything while looking down on those who don't play sports. The councilor I had, Mr. O, was awesome at accomedating thing for me. He worked closely with my parents and teachers to help me through the years. Although drugs aren't popular yet, alcohol is rampent. Most of the popular kids drink quite often. Several of the older kids smoke too. Some of the teachers are good while other aren't. One teacher I had was so terrible to me my parents thought about going to the school board over her. The school itself isn't too bad; most of the facilities are fairly new or are still nice. The sports teams do pretty well, so I would only recommend this school if you want to got for sports.
