We love Travis! The principal, teachers and administration are wonderful and really care about the children. The community and parents are very supportive. It's been a great experience for us and our child!

If you have a Vanguard child and you don't mind raising that child with a view of a 'Haves and Have Not' world, then you are in the right place. There is a distinct line between those kids deemed 'gifted' and those in the neighborhood classes. They are not treated equally...pray your child passes the ...  Read more

Travis is an inner-city school that is flourishing. Great teacher, fantastic administration and involved parents. The perfect trifecta! Oh yeah, and students who are engaged.
