Students and Parents,
This fall VAHS will roll out the Family Connections (Naviance) program to our students and families. This innovative tool is used by many school districts in the area, and gives students and families information, resources, and guidance for college and career readiness. Students are able to research through interest inventories to better help them pick careers and colleges that match their criteria.
Click the link below for a brief video on Family Connections.
VAHS had the first Student Senate meeting Thursday, September 24 at the high school with the Culinary Arts department providing a fabulous lunch. Students got to meet with the Superintenent, and give advice from a students perspective on what makes VAHS great, and what will make us even better! Thanks so much students, Dr. Brown, and Dr. Spies.
