I attended Vernon for 3 years and had some good and some not so good experiences. The principal, VP, secretary were all very nice and welcoming as well as many others. They is however some staff members that you can tell have been teaching a while. They have many opportunities to get involved with the community and your peers. They have had so many multi-cultural events. They regularly have visitors from local places and have had an annual day of visitors from Thailand, Japan, India, Australia, Croatia, and many other foreign countries. They make sure no one is ever left out. They strive to make sure everyone is happy. The teachers and principal will play sports with you and get involved.
