The school has won praise from all involved with it, from parents to the state Education Commissioner.
“The (students) results are good and at the same time there is a sense of purpose, sense of understanding why you’re doing what you’re doing and why you’re learning what you’re learning,” said Education Commissioner David Steiner.
“By attending TVHS, John has learned the importance of being respectful with his peers, teachers, and all he comes into contact with. Because of TVHS and the exposure John has had to business and university leaders … he has goals to work towards, and is learning how to reach those goals,” said Stacey Sicko, a parent of a sophomore.
