Brita Ahlers, Class of 2015
VVS isn’t just a school. I mean, it’s not just buildings and personality-less teachers with their degrees hanging on the wall. It’s not the loud hallways and the overwhelming rush of people and the unbearable assignments. VVS, for me, has been everything that public high school wasn’t. It’s provided me with a safe space – a place where I feel comfortable and myself, where I am surrounded by kind and caring people. I came as a Junior and have relished every moment at VVS as a gift, because for me it really is.
