Who are some of VCS's best teachers, through the years?

Lauren Zalaznick
It was so great when Dale had a teacher that Ada and/or Lucy did, too -- Linda was fantastic at seeing each kid for who they are as individuals but bringing some of the same great teaching techniques to all! Luis! Ruben! Very special relationships for Dale...But, also when a new teacher came to VCS for the first time, someone like Richard (English, advisory) or Melissa (Latin), it was amazing to see them get to know Dale for who he was, and bring out the absolute best in him as a student and human being. We're really glad that Dale got to know the very last of the "old guard" -- RON! who had been at VCS for 25 years when Ada had him, 30+ by the time he retired after Dale's 7th grade year...

Mallory and Renee have both supported me and inspired me throughout my time at VCS. Mallory introduced the world of poetry and reading to me like I have never seen it before. She took me to poetry reading which shows how devoted she was to her students. Renee got me interested in CAFE (cultural awareness for everyone) now it is my elective and I go to the club. She has taught me about the value of diversity and many current events. Mallory and Renee have both been leaders in the Girls Affinity Group that we started this year. They have taught us what feminism really is and why we need to be active in female rights. I can not thank them enough for everything they have done.

Richard, Emma and Mallory by far. Richard was just awesome and made school fun. Classes with him were always exciting. Emma got me interested in the world of science and got me back into birdwatching. I also had a very memorable time in biodiversity club. Then Mallory introduced me to the beautiful world of politics.
But we should not forget about the amazing substitute teachers. Meg and Sheniqua were definitely the best subs.

What's VCS's favorite hangout spot?

Lauren Zalaznick
The "Corner Store"; Pizza for sure, after school; Golden Wok when nothing else could satisfy Dale's fried wonton cravings!
Lily Hupfel
I would say the benches outside the bagel store. There is always a crowd of VCSers there.
Freddie Peterson
We often go to Ready to Eat for out lunch, but after school there is always a line of VCS kids at Starbucks.

What was VCS's favorite subject or course?

Lily Hupfel
My favorite subject was English because Mallory introduced us to a whole new way of reading. CAFE was my favorite elective where we learned about current events and became more culturally aware.
Ava Cutrone
I think English because most of us love our English teachers and we have lots of freedom when we do projects.
Asher Dwoskin
My favorite was either Latin or Science.

Best Fall Festival and/or Halloween Photos?

Lauren Zalaznick
Scary bunch.

How did VCS change from the first day of school to the last?

Alex Seidman
The teachers. I can probably only point out a small handful of teachers that have stayed at VCS ever since I arrived in 2007.
Camila Brik
VCS stayed mostly the same, but everyone changed so much. Physically and Mentally. A big change was all the opportunities we got throughout the years.
