Successive batches of students established a sort of norm of sending passouts to key higher education institutions in the country- IITs, erstwhile RECs, Medical Colleges like the AFMC, the National Defence Academy, were known stops to several students of VSV. Several Alumni went on to higher education overseas but continue to keep in touch with the school.
As an institution, many distinguished people walked its portals as well as precincts. Principals and Teachers, Professionals and Managers from the parent HAL, helped shape the school from its humble essential beginnings- as an elementary provider of education facilities for first generation of HAL employees who opted to come to this area in the late 1960s and early 1970 s- with liberal doses of motivation and lofty ideals. And by the way, the geographic location of the school also saw Leaders who stopped by on their visit to the factory or the region - Central Cabinet Ministers, Chiefs of the Air Force, Naval Commanders, would know of the school as a first stop on their visit to this remote and culturally rich region in the Eastern Ghats. An old photograph bears fact to one occasion, when the school grounds served as a helipad for Mrs Indira Gandhi on her only visit to the region!
