On Teachers: While some teachers leave a lot to be desired, there are quite a few genuinely fantastic teachers at this school. I highly recommend taking higher level classes to get to the better teachers. Mr. Saw and Dr. Neat, in particular, are not only two of the best teachers I have ever had, but wonderful human beings. Missing out on learning from them would be a tragedy. All in all, the good teachers at CV easily make up for their lesser coworkers.

On Resources & Facilities: CVHS is a clean, beautiful campus. We have a very well developed robotics team, plenty of tutoring services, and a myriad of activities to get involved in.
