About Us

VHS has a strong tradition of success in both academics and extracurricular activities. Our entire high school staff is committed to providing rigorous academic opportunities to our students while providing a variety of academic supports to insure success for all.  We are dedicated to providing a nurturing, safe and challenging learning environment. With outstanding support from our families and community, Vicksburg High School takes pride in developing high character in all of our students.

Advanced Placement

Vicksburg High School is proud to offer seventeen Advanced Placement courses, has nationally recognized fine arts, comprehensive and varied club activities, Career Technical Education (CTE) and Education For the Arts (EFE) course offerings, dual enrollment opportunities, and much more.

VHS was selected to be an AP Capstone High School and graduated its first cohort of AP Capstone students in the Spring of 2021. We feel this will push our AP Program, students and high school to new levels. AP Capstone is a diploma program created by the College Board. It's based on two year long AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and pass (scores of a 3 or higher) on four additional AP Exams of their choosing will receive an AP Capstone Diploma. In addition, we offer 26 varsity sports with impressive participation.  Our students are deeply involved in many projects that support the community as well as the greater Kalamazoo area. VHS was also recognized as one of the Best High Schools in the State of Michigan by US News and World Report.
