Photo Package: Same kind of different

Driving past Victoria East and West can be a little disorienting.
The high schools' architecture is identical, though they are separated by the city of Victoria. Their school colors correlate: Each wears red and black to show spirit, but East includes gold, while West dons silver. East's Titans parallel the West Warriors.
Most importantly, these two schools share a history.
The 2013 graduates of Victoria East and Victoria West began high school together as freshmen at the now-closed Memorial High School. The two high schools opened in August 2010 in an attempt to bridge the performance gap segregating north and south Victoria.
"Same Kind of Different" is a multimedia project about the high school experience in Victoria now, as told through the principals and student leaders of each school.
