    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "1) Student Involvement- a majority of students are college-bound, so many, many students participate in many clubs. To me, they were a great way to have fun with my friends and boost my resume. 2) Peer Pressure- While Victor is small, it's not so small that everyone has to spend time with everyone. I personally was able to avoid people and situations with negative peer pressure- what I mean is that it's easy to find a group of friends that share your interests and morals. You don't have to party/ drink or anything to have a squad 3) Racial/ Ethnic Diversity- pretty much none. Victor is VERY white. Out of my class of 360ish, there were probably 5 black kids, 10 Asian kids, and 10 Puerto Ricans. Oh, and one British kid. Pretty much everyone else was white American. 4) Sexual Orientation/ Acceptance- Not taboo, but not really paraded. We had a transgirl in my class, and no one (as far as I know) gave her problems when she came out and started wearing dresses and fake boobs. There's an acceptance club and the safe space program has been implemented, so (as far as I can tell as a straight person) there's support available for LGBT kids."

    "I found Victor to be excellent in terms of academics. Sure, it isn't some elite, nationally-known prep school or anything, but I learned so much from (usually) great teachers, with a workload that was tough, but not so much that I couldn't play sports or have a social life. I would've given it 5 stars, except I wish that there were a few more options for classes. For example, only Spanish and French are offered, and I would've chosen pretty much any language except those two."

    "Although no school can be perfect, Victor Senior High School has done a great job at making a school filled with knowledgeable teachers who enjoy what they teach. No teachers ever complain about their jobs, and all of the teachers are friendly and approachable. The grading is pretty consistent, but it truly depends on the teacher. Communication between teachers is pretty good, but there is always room for improvement. Overall, VSHS has intelligent teachers who are quite effective at their jobs, but also are approachable and make class interesting."

    "This school has been great for me. Although many things could be improved, I cannot complain about the quality of my education. Although I had some trouble with teasing and bullying, it was never prolonged, and the school generally creates a safe environment for all students in theory, though not always in practice. I loved the biology department at our school, and I learned a lot. I feel adequately prepared for college. That said, I am excited to go to college and will be glad when I graduate."

    "The vast majority of teachers I ran across were friendly, knowledgeable, and had a real passion for teaching teenagers. That being said, you'll occasionally run across a slacker or someone who can't control the students, but I've only been exposed to them in easy classes."
