    I attended Vardaman school and I loved every minute of it. I feel that it is the best school around.

    This is a great school. Seven of my grandchildren are attending at this time. I am well pleased with the education they are getting.

    Myself and five other brothers graduated from VHS. We all did very well with the education received at the school leadership and discipline were excellent. The ones I graduated with in 79 all tuned out well in life's pursuit. I would recommend the school too anyone my son will be a transfer student for the 2010 class. The only school I would not recommended would be TPSD in Tupelo.
