What Our Team Members Say
"Vestavia Hills City Schools is like a family to me. Our school system goes above and beyond to encourage and support teachers. The Board of Education, our school administrators, and our parents and community volunteers stand behind teachers as we support the academic and social-emotional growth of our students. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to love and serve the students in our community, and there's no place I would rather spend my career."

"Moving from the competitive Birmingham restaurant industry to Vestavia Hills City Schools has been so rewarding for me and my family. I get to use my training as a chef every day to create nutritious, amazing meals that students love to eat. I get to work alongside a great team who lead by example and support one another. Most of all, I get to experience the peace of mind that comes from all of the benefits our school system has to offer."
