    "My time at VHS thus far has been enjoyable albeit stressful. There is a pressure on students to perform highly and take as many AP courses as possible leading to a cheating problem. However, most teachers are phenomenal, especially in STEM. The teachers are friendly, understanding, and knowledgeable about their subject. One thing I have enjoyed about VHS is the variety of classes you can take. If you can't find a class you like on campus, you can travel to another school in LISD or the community college. A few of the problems I have found at VHS are the incompetent counseling team, the poorly organized English department, and the drug use. There have been many times I have felt the counseling team doesn't care about their job or their students. They arrive late for personal meetings and seem unable to manage scheduling for the school. The English department is known for low AP scores because of their inability to see through favoritism and actually give feedback to all students."

    "First off, Vandegrift is an extremely challenging school. It has numerous opportunities for higher level courses (such as AP or IB) and options for taking college courses from Austin Community College for high school and college credit. The teachers are mostly average, but there are some extremely good and bad teachers. The athletic and academic clubs are competitive, with a world class robotics program. There is a high focus on college readiness starting in the junior year, with multiple resources and teachers devoted to college readiness."

    "Being a student at Vandegrift high school has been a fantastic experience for me, especially the band program (which I highly recommend you join). The teachers here are really great at teaching their subjects and love helping their students. If you ever have a question or need help, teachers and other students are more than happy to help. If you're taking AP classes, prepared to work hard no matter which class it is. It is important that you do take several Pre-AP or AP classes, since everyone at Vandegrift is an overachiever, so that your class rank stays at a good spot and also to boost your GPA. The only problem is that since everyone here works so hard, you have to try and beat them by studying harder and getting even better grades. If anyone in the top quarter, maybe even top half went to another school, I guarantee they would be in the top 10% if not higher."

    "As exchange student with experience from European high school, I think that this school maybe prepares for American colleges, but not for European ones. For me personally the huge disadvantage is overall size of school and size of classes with average around 28 students."
