    "The teacher helps the students who don't want to attend college by advising them of the benefits of going in the long run of life and are able to connect to the students very well. They also are very dedicated to Academics in Higher learning in college and universities. The sports program are very good at being able to be recognized by colleges from all sorts of division in every sport. That and I am a graduate from this school making it very bias."

    "They didn't send my transcript to my new school fast enough, so i am going into school later than everyone else. And once they sent the transcript they sent wrong info. Also, there are fights that always happen, drugs that go around, and the transportation system is shared with other schools. As a result you may be picked up at 6:00 but get dropped off more than an hour later."

    "In my four years at vela I have had the normal high school experance and the love from teachers. I learned not only educational lessons but life lessons as well. My teachers gave me the chance to blossom. As well as I was able to find out who I am and what I am meant to do. I am hoping for the years to come, other saber cats would come and experance the exclance the school provides and make saber sensational memories"
