VAS is a warm, friendly environment and a nice place for kids to learn and make friends.

This school is not what it used to be I do not recommend you enroll your child in this school some of the students are mean. The teachers are kind but you do not learn anything. Problems do not get solved. The budget is extremely horrible there are no sports.

Horribe school. Teachers don't care much about the student/parent relationship. Teacher's assistants are rude and don't give a good example to the children. If I could go back in time I would NEVER enroll my child in this school.
