Leadership often jump to conclusions and punish inappropriately.
Posted by a parent on 4/28/2017
This school has an assistant principle, principle, and some teachers that struggle to appreciate students. It lacks teaching methods that are creative. The role-modeling of the principle and assistant principle is based on an assumption that students cannot be trusted to act well and so administrator imply to all students that they are not trustworthy. Teaching methods are lacking in terms of engaging students in open dialogue and thought provoking activities. The adults in charge seem more interested in controlling students though punishment verses teaching students to learn and explore. There are minimal school spirit activities led by teachers or students to enjoy or look forward to.

This school is excellent! The teachers there are supportive and will always help you when needed. The staff is friendly and not too strict. If you are a patient student, it takes about 3-8 minutes to get your lunch from the cafeteria. This school is better than LVMS (Lompoc Valley Middle School).

Eh, the schools okay I guess. Most of the teachers are nice and helpful but the buses are really crowded. You have to sit three kids to a seat. There can be some really annoying kids but I wouldn't really consider them bullies. The lunch line is a little long but that's only if you get there late. I guess I'd rather be here than LVMS.

I like this school so far the teachers are nice especially Se ora Garmendia and Mrs.Zender. Mrs. Froemming is super nice lunch line wait is a little long people do cut but most kids bring a lunch so it doesn't bug me or my friends because we still have a lot of time to eat and hang with each other , before SSR(firth period) Aerospace is a bit boring my friends brother said it was a lot of fun last year, now its just boring. Every class I go to I learn something new or more about something I already learned about. I was a bit scared about going to this school after me and my mom read the reviews. especially the ones about the bulling because I was bullied and that's why I don't go to the boys and girls club any more. Actually when I got there and saw how it is for myself I liked it. One thing that is bad is the busses because its very crowed especially the g street bus because we have 86 kids and one bus but Mr. Fernados sister said a second bus is soon to come Im looking forword to a better edicatn and fun year at Vandenberg Middle School I recommend it to future 7th graders and 8th graders
