Villa Park High School History
VPHS opened in 1964 to over 1,300 sophomores and juniors. The first graduating class was in 1966. Both the teachers and students participated in the landscaping and even building benches for the amphitheater. The project was called “Operation Green Thumb” and by April 7th, 1965 the landscaping was done. Originally VPHS had quonset huts as classrooms on the east side and an Orange grove. The student body voted on the school mascot, the Spartans, which remains today.
