The relationship between Dons and faculty goes well beyond the classroom to a trusted, sacred mentorship. Dedicated Magnet teachers and staff take special interest and pride in how well they know the students through personalization, project-based learning and collaboration across various disciplines.
Grounded in being supportive, we provide a safe, flexible, diverse and inclusive environment for our students. VHHS takes pride in allowing students to explore, learn and discover their own paths and talents to thrive.
Verdugo really allows a group of diverse people to excel in their own ways, which is very important to find out who you are and what you want to do in the future.
