Vail Academy & High School Ratings & Reviews

My daughter has had a great experience at VAHS!!! She has gone on trips, won State awards in their programs, has Excelling on all her state standardized tests, taken AP and honors classes and has passed all the AP exams, AND has great friends that are all focused on going to college. Sports is a general non-factor at VAHS, though the students can go over to Empire to play if that's their thing. The staff are able to see almost the whole campus looking out their door so there is not the bullying to a level at huge high schools. Having the little kids on the campus seems to engage the high school students to act more responsibly as they are the role models.

My daughter is graduating this year and has attended VAHS for 3 years. I have nothing but positive things to say about the school. The teachers and staff are very caring and the safe, family atmosphere is evident from the minute you arrive on campus. The on-line homework assignments (Moodle) and on-line grade book (Power School) allow you to keep on top of everything. Teachers are responsive and willing to help students succeed.

I'm reading the reviews below - "the work load is very hard", "my kid was an honor student in elementary school" ...these reviews are the reason why your children are not excelling. It would be like me whining about my boss because my job was too hard. We are trying to raise functioning members of society, not self entitled babies. Are you going on their job interviews with them as adults and then going to complain when they don't get the job. Vail Academy is not easy. The teachers challenge the students every day. If my children get a bad grade, the majority of the time, it was their fault. They have been going to Vail Academy since it's inception. I look forward to them graduating from this amazing school!

The work load is very hard, I notice the kids who are friends with the teachers are held to a different standard than the students who have not befriended anyone. Our children both were so depressed that we had to get counseling during the school year. My wife and I were very unhappy, this is the worst school we have ever encountered in the Tucson and Vail school districts we have attended. We are looking forward to the new school year at another high school, the depression we went through was like a huge weight crushing our family and I can't tell you how much better we feel anticipating the new school!

Both of my kids have really loved this school. At first, my older one did not care for it only because she came from another gigantic elementary school. Once she started to make some friends and started seeing the school, staff, and teachers recognize her for her achievements, when asked if she would like to go to another school, she stated firmly, NO. Same response with my younger one. This school does make you feel like part of their family. I've seen new kids come and go, probably a big transition since this school is not only a charter school, it's small and in the Vail School district. So yes, there is a higher standard here than most schools in southern Arizona. All the teachers my kids have had have been responsive whenever I contact by email or speak face to face. They have really worked with me whenever there are challenging times when my kid(s) have had a hard time with any subject. This school is very much digital, so both kids and parents need to be pretty comfortable with using computers to help their kids succeed. It's a huge adjustment because of moodle online where homework is posted and grades and attendance posted on powerschool online & by email.
