Our daughter is in 4th grade and has been attending VVL since Kindergarten, and her years at this school have been truly exceptional. Having been raised myself in small town Midwest, VVL has the same feel of a small town school grounded in solid core values. Kids are taught more than just academics, ...  Read more

When we moved here from Colorado we were nervous about the school systems. VVL made us feel comfortable and the boys are happy with their school! My husband and I feel confident the boys are learning and being challenged.

I have had nothing but excellent experiences at this school. Both of my children have done well at VVL; and one is on an IEP. There was a great transition to Junior High. Band and Orchestra are outstanding.

I love this school. They have helped my son get caught up after falling behind at another school, helped get him an IEP he needed. The staff are great and friendly too.

I must say in regards to parent involvement it is too obvious that the 'groupie' parents that run around thinking they make all the difference ...  Read more

We love VVL. I am very impressed at the amount of learning that happens during the day - I don't know how the teachers are able to fit it all in, but they do! Parent involvement revolves around a core group of women who obviously care a great deal and have bounds of energy! I think the Principal is a ...  Read more

We love VVL! The entire staff, including the office and all the staff that help in the classrooms and the playground are wonderful. We felt they really cared about our kids, to keep them safe, learn to the best of their ability, and have fun. We always felt welcome and the principal was very accessable ...  Read more
