The Van-Far High School has received National Recognition by US News and World Report Magazine. VFHS has been awarded Bronze Medal Status by the magazine in their review of schools across the nation.
The U.S. News and World Report rankings include data on more than 19,400 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments and how well they prepare students for college. The scoring index uses Algebra, English and College and Career Readiness results as its basis.
“Such a distinction only comes from strong curriculum, dedication and hard work on a daily basis. We are extremely proud of the efforts of our staff and students.” says Van-Far Superintendent Stephen Hunter.
“This community and school district is blessed to have such an outstanding group of dedicated staff members who work to provide our students with success. Our students know the importance of hard work and show it in all aspects. This award is well earned. I am proud to be part of the Van-Far R-1 School District and the Vandalia and Farber communities.” says Cindy Pirch, Van-Far Principal.
