    "I have attended a total of 6 public schools (2 high schools) before I graduated last year, and have lived in 4 different states. From my experience, CV was by far the best. I was on the volleyball team all 3 years I attended, participated in several art classes, was part of prom committee, and was able to explore a possible future career, architecture. They have an extensive list of course choices, with amazing teachers. My guidance counselor did everything in her power to help me to adjust to the large school, and would constantly call me in to chat. The principal we currently have is one of the most passionate women I have ever known. Like ALL high schools, there are drugs. However, I have never used drugs, had a sip of alcohol, or smoked in my life. The most important thing is to be involved in the endless programs CV offers and drugs won't be a problem. When we moved my family searched endlessly to find a great school, and I think we found the absolute best. GO EAGLES!"

    "We chose CV when relocating to the area three years ago, after an extensive search of high schools in a 15 mile radius of my employment. We were not disappointed in any facet of my daughter's education or extracurricular endeavors and would make the same choice again, without reservation. I am sure she would agree."

    "My kids graduated from CV and went on to college. I am ranking the school with two stars to honor the music program, the small handful of teachers who really care and excel at their jobs, the number of course offerings/options and the opportunities to pursue AP work. Areas that needed vast improvement would have to include the math department, the business courses, foreign language and anything in the PE category. This school suffers from a good-sized contingent of teachers who suffer from anti-parent/anti-student attitudes only surpassed by an administrative group with no direction, leadership or rationale. I feel badly for the superior staffers who find themselves working alongside those that drag down the entire works. Favoritism and politicking run rampant, exacerbated if you aren't "from the island". Yes, there are some drugs...and the admins suspect everyone...but good kids are the majority, they just need adults in the system who believe in them and care enough to help them traverse their high school years. Glad to be done."

    "CV high school has a great facility, but the student population is out of control, over 2500 students. They need to split into 2 high schools. Too many students that get lost in the crowd, unless they are a stellar athlete....but with so many kids, good luck getting on a team! And although they are trying to control drug abuse, it is all over the school and parking lot. Last year, 5 freshman overdosed together in the school! Check the facts and don't send your kids here."

    "I am very disappointed with CV HS. If your child has any special needs as far as alternative ed or anything else, they do not put him or her as a priority. My son suffered for years because he got involved in drugs at a very young age. His math is seriously at a much lower level then they will admit. They tried placing him in Geometry this year and he became discouraged very quickly. Oh and did I mention drug use...that school is working on trying to control a very large substance abuse problem. I know any school has problems but this school is so large that kids are mostly a number. Kids get lost in the shuffle. I have had teachers and counselors that their hands were tied because they can't do what they need to do for these kids. If your child needs additional support, emotional, academically or any other, this is not the school for you. They say they have a handle on it but the proof is in the bag."
