My favorite thing about Visi is the atmosphere that the teachers, students, and campus create. The teachers here care so much about the individual growth of each student and go out of their way to make each class fun and interesting. The students make me feel like I am part of one big family. Everyone is very welcoming and kind. Finally, the atmosphere that the campus creates makes this whole high-school experience so much better. Charlotte '20
