We currently have a 5th grader at Vanguard and have had three other children graduate from Vanguard. The teachers and administration go above and beyond to help their students succeed. They work with students who may be struggling and challenge those who may be working above grade level in certain subjects. ...  Read more

This is my first year as a Vanguard parent and I couldn't be more thrilled. My daughter is in kindergarten and her teacher has been amazing. We are thrilled with the challenges she's been given and wouldn't hesitate to suggest this school to those looking. My one complaint would be the class sizes - ...  Read more

VCA has some of the best teachers we have ever encountered. They are making strides towards pushing the more advanced learners while providing extra help for those kids who need it.

We have a 6th grader and Young Five student and could not be happier with our decision to attend Vanguard. The staff is so caring about the students and their families also. It's like a family here.

My child has attended since Young Fives and is now in 4th grade. The teachers and staff welcome communication with parents and are willing to help out as much as possible, especially the 4th grade teachers. We are very happy here!

Our children switched from the Kentwood area to Vanguard and couldn't be happier. Our three children are learning more than ever and the teachers and staff are great. If a student is learning a little faster than others, the teachers notice and challenge them, which we love. We also love the system they ...  Read more

There are a lot of bullying problems here and the school fails to adequately address them. As a result, I do not trust the staff to keep my child and other children safe. The academics are pretty good. If they could get a good principle with strong leadership skills and an authoritative presence, ...  Read more

I went to this school from 3rd grade to 8th and a absolutely loved it. Going into Vanguard from a public school was the best choice ever, at my old school we were free to do what we want and turn in homework when ever. The teachers at Vanguard are amazing. Each teacher loves us all the same. We also ...  Read more

Vanguard has one of the best selection of teachers I have ever worked with. They always keep me informed on what is going on in the class and how my child is doing. They are always willing to talk and help when one of my children has struggled in an area. I love helping out when I can because I hear ...  Read more

Test Year: 2013

Vanguard Charter Academy
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
