This school has a history of nepotism and unethical financial practices, as reported by various news sources. They were investigated multiple times by the Ohio Ethics Commission and have still not corrected the findings of that commission. As a former employee, I know the incredible ineptitude of the ...  Read more

Please check VLT's academic performance via the Ohio Department of Education's website. The school has only received a rating of continuous improvement one time. The school has continually earned ratings of academic watch or emergency. I would think twice before sending my son/daughter there.

As I was reading previous reviews I must say VLT has come a long way. It now has 5 buildings with an accelerated K-1 program. I have a son in the program as well as a daughter in the high school who has been there since 6th grade. I chose to keep my daughter there because of the many opportunities ...  Read more

I have a child in kindergarden at VLT. In just the short 3 months, she has learned to spell many colors, knows how to write upper and lower case alphabet, reads license plate numbers and signs while I am driving (this makes me nuts as she expects me to acknowledge what she has read while I keep my eye ...  Read more

The empty star for missing parents. I too am a teacher and teaching is not just a job. It is a 'calling' dedicated to helping individuals learn. We love our school. Our children deserve the best possible education and teachers who love them and want to see them succeed. WE DO!! We need parents who ...  Read more

The reason for the high turnover of teachers is the lack of parent involvement. It's not always the teacher's fault; parents that don't get involved in their child's education should not even have a say! The teachers here work very hard with little reward; give them a break and work on the family and ...  Read more

I really love VLT Academy. Their focus is on our children. For the school to be a new school it has already done great things. It is continuosly growing and I see great things in the future for the school.
