      Five comments about Van Nuys Senior High

      Van Nuys had the Highest AP pass rate score two years in a roll from 2007-2009 school years. Its academic is impeccable, and the students who attended had teachers who actually did care. I graduated from the Medical Magnet, and I learned many things. However this is the magnet, and I'm not sure if i can say this about the residential population of the school. Mainly the Magnet teachers were very concern about student's education, and i heard the Residential teachers gave up on them.
