    Although this school could be recommended for children who already accell I would not advise it for children with any problem academic or otherwise. They tend to be left behind or labeled. Extracurricular activities are available but very expensive and not directed toward the children who could benefit the most. Overall I would like to see more action and less talk from the officials in control.

    VJHS is a good school. It is also very new with a good principal and good staff. It is the only school with A/C also.
