Community ratings & reviews

    I graduated from NVHS and think it was a great school. I did a lot of extra-curricular activities and think the guidance department helped me substantially in preparing for college enrollment as well as offering me an education tailored to my learning and transcript needs. While you don't get the cultural diversity of a large urban school that can only be expected considering the rural location. However for a smaller school it is well-maintained and up-to-date. I graduated with many people who travelled the world after graduating from college. I think their inspiration and passion came from being at NVHS.

    I graduated from NVHS and I would never send my children to this school. The school does not properly prepare its students for university level reading writing and mathematics. The people in the community are completely close minded and provincial. Your children will not receive a cultural education. A quick online search of indiana high school rankings will confirm my comments. NVHS is consistently ranked at the bottom of all Indiana schools. Send your children elsewhere.

    I have sent 3 girls through the North Vermillion grade school and high school. The youngest graduated this year and we will all miss the school. You have the best of a small community but still have a variety of class and sports for everyone. The facilities are kept clean and inviting. The district makes great effort to keep updated on new technology. It guidance department puts a lot of effort into helping the kids be prepared for college. They also make available scholarship information and help where it's needed.
