    "Eh, the first two years actually were pretty good, but then it went downhill Junior year. That's when the new principal came in. Within the next two years, things became more disoriented. There were more fights, a couple of times where students got pepper sprayed and the halls had to be cleared, and overall, things were crazy. The people are for the most part nice, provided they aren't pregnant and crabby or fresh from trying to set the bathroom trashcan on fire. And at the very least, the teachers do try and care."

    "I liked that all the students were friendly and got along. I disliked the disrespect some students gave to teachers or how the school was more focused on attendance than grades. For example if you had all A's but missed school often, you couldn't go to prom."

    "Van Horn is incredibly accepting. We have so much spirit and love for each other as a whole. With every school, there is conflict, but there aren't any bullies, and majority of the school cares deeply about the reputation we carry."

    "Van Horn high school is a very diverse school. However, they lack in the connection department. There isn't much connection among the students with activities, teachers, each other. I'd like to see more involvement with the community and the teachers at the school to help bring the students together. I believe that the students would be better off and more likely to want to come to school and do something if they felt some kind of connection to the school and the people they have to spend a decent amount of time with. The teachers should get more involved with the kids. There needs to be more fun activities planned that can help bring the school together as a whole. I'd like to see more people want to come to school and become the best versions of themselves."
