2/2/2012studentI am a graduating senior at Verrado and I must say I am very proud in my school and our accomplishments. Most of the teachers here are great and you'd do well to send your student here. Of course there are those teachers that are in my opinon in need of repolacement but every school has them. Do not expect a warm welcome or even any "please" and "thank you" from the front desk reception. Those people are mean, heartless, and robotic. The registrar, bookstore and the library are the places to go for good reception. The students are somewhat just like any other school, but they have thier own kind of attitude too. The school spirit is somewhat lacking but the sudent gov't is very animated about school spirit which is great. Most of the teachers love their students if the student is willing to participate. I know I loved my classes and my teachers appreciated that. The acedemics here are really top notch, but if your looking for sports, we're not bad. We just need a few years. Overall this school is the best I could have ever gone to! The teachers are great, the coaches really care, and I could not have done better at any other school. Millenium and Agua Fria pale in comparison.
3/16/2011parentVerrado s HS goal is all students college ready . I have two children that have graduated from Verrado HS. Both are currently doing well in college and one was able to achieve sports scholarship. I can honestly say my kids were academically challenged but, remained happy and achieved their full potential at Verrado. As a parent this is the most we can ask for from our public schools. The school started on the foot right by only bringing in a freshman class and built a culture of teamwork reflected in their motto One Verrado . I found a strong sense of community and partnership between parents, teachers, students and children at this school in comparison to other schools. As a military family, we were extremely pleased and I believe this school will continue to improve and become one of the top public high schools in the valley.
3/10/2011parentVHS has come a long way in 5 years. Incompetent teachers have been replaced, inexperienced teachers now have experience, some excellent progams are now well established. Was not at all happy with the Cheer program. Excellent AP Engllish and AP World History teachers. Great Science department.. Awesome Broadcast Tech classes. Parents just need to encourage their kids to take school seriously and to not leave their manners at home. Teachers lose interest in the students that have bad/apathetic attitudes. School needs to re-evaluate their ONE VERRADO philosophy and bring back some traditions to encourage school spirit and establish school pride which would translate to personal pride and self esteem.
1/15/2011studentWas a student at verrado high school. Seriously parents, this school does not care about your child education, blows their money on sports and then later in the year lecture the teachers not to print so much because they do not have enough money to spend on. As a student I was very involved in my academics, they did not have textbooks prepared when I went. The principal does not want to get involved into anything. The students are very disrespectful, you have to remember where the demographics is located at. The school only cares about cheerleading and football, which both sports are not even that good in the state. I can say that there are those teachers that you can find within the school that are very supportive. Like I said, I was a student and did not like the school at all, so I left. Trust me I wasn't a trouble maker or trying to cause problems I just wanted to get done with my education and this school left me hopeless when I went.
12/10/2010parentI am generally pleased with the School, but my daughter's science teacher is wearing one of the alcohol bracelets that Lindsay Lohan wears. We did a quick online check and learned that she has lengthy arrest record from North Carolina. What kind of roll models are they providing our children? I question the School's responsibility to provide a safe environment, There are plenty of sober people looking for work.
11/15/2010parentMy kids have done so well here, with band, sports, art, NHS. The kids they hang with are fun, it is a new school and with the proper amount of parent involvement your kids will excel. I have had both a son and daughter here. The only issues I have seen are from kids of broken families, or poor parents that bring their issues to school. Good kids will do very well here.
6/3/2010parentI have 2 students in Verrado and both love it! The school has diferences of opinion with the parents but they are reaasonable fair and diplomatic. The one Verrado concept is honored. I have read some of the previous posts crying racisim and that is a bold faced lie and isn't playing the race card getting a little old? The staff and admin are caring of each student. The pride and respect the student body has for each other as well as the staff and Admin and including the school itself is enviable. The schools only blemish is the varsity football team (sadly they seem determined to run that program into the ground) the weight room pales in comparison to other schools in the district.
5/29/2010studentVerrado high is the 5th school in the country to earn the all green award.
5/29/2010parentThe Principal does not want to be involved with any problems. Some teachers very inexperienced and when parents come forward with issues they are ignored to a large extent.
4/26/2010studentThis school is pretty good but I feel that the school can be better. Some of the teachers aren't that experianced and others are way too strict. But there are plenty of teachers who do their job well.
4/20/2010parentMy daughter's were students there and they were treated like criminals. I believe that the staff is very both very inmature and racist to the african american race. I would not recommend this school to any children of color.
11/16/2009parentMy son is a freshman at Verrado. Overall I am comfortable with the school, but do feel that many of the teachers I have come into contact with are inexperienced. If the school placed more emphasis on hiring more skilled and experienced teachers, I feel the school would make tremendous progress.
5/12/2009parentMy son is a freshmen at Varrado and he is very happy with Varrado teachers and students. Verrado has changed him in a very positive way. My son is more focused and mature since he started going to high school and his sports skills are very accurate now.
4/29/2009parentMy child does not like verrardo and I have some parents who have kids that are transferring out. Not all students are treated with value
10/2/2008studentThis school is fairly good with the academic courses but there are things that need adjustments. The sports program is great, with very caring coaches. I believe some of the teachers are inexperienced and should learn how to teach their class instead changing project criteria on the fly. Overall, I believe this is a good school, and it will hopefully get better as the years progress.
8/1/2008studentI love this school. I just finished my freshman year and I am moving on to my sophmore year in a couple days. Verrado is a very open and hands-on school. You can interact with all the students. There is plenty of space to walk around and the buildings are close together so there shouldnt be any problem getting to classes on time. The teachers are friendly and most of the students are. Just like every highschool there are the ones who think they are on top but what highschool doesnt have those students? Sending your child to Verrado will be the best choice you will make for your child.
7/13/2008studentVerrado is a very cool school with nice teachers and staff. I thought the 'open' class room thing would be a disturbance but its actually very interesting. It doesn't interfere with schoolwork like I thought it would.
9/26/2007studentI Love This School. I came from Buhs and you were scared, but not at verrado. I feel safe and the learnig inviroment is great and the class size is small the teachers care about you and how you do in school the school in ecourages parents and students to be involed. I love this school and wouldn't change it at all.
5/19/2007studentThe quality of the school is very poor there is no suppoet from the principal and the teachers are very inexperianced!
