Terrible. Do not recommend. I would send my children to a charter school over this school if I had the opportunity again.

The school used to be fabulous from what I was told. I have yet to see it. I had my kids in private and unfortunately that is the way to go!

Truly an amazing school. We feel so lucky that it’s so great and public! We moved into the area so we could take advantage of the awesome public schools like Vanderburg

This school is full of administrators that bully and harass the parents. The principal actually had the audacity to shame me in the office in front of other parents and staff because I was 12 minutes late to pick up my child. The other staff got in on it too, nodding their heads. I have never been treated like this by any public school staff in over 20 years in the public schools in other states. This behavior is unacceptable.

This school has been a total nightmare for my children. They have learned nothing. The principle is only concerned about test scores. She doesn’t care if you have a problem. She won’t even call when she’s made aware of serious issues or concerns. If your child doesn’t learn quickly or the same as everyone else, they move on. They don’t offer help to this student. Class size is ridiculous. The teachers are overwhelmed and don’t have any teacher assistance. I have witnessed some serious screaming coming out of classrooms. I’ve said things about it to other teachers. The teachers state that administration has been made aware of it. They don’t care. Unless your student is a genius and has heaps of confidence, don’t send them to Vandenberg. Look past that five star rating. It’s smoke and mirrors. The kids and teachers are unhappy. With the exception of their friends, my kids hate this school. It’s getting worse and worse every day. They never stop asking for money either. We (the parents) paid for 2 teachers out of our pockets last year so we wouldn’t lose them. We were told our class sizes would go up exponentially if we didn’t do it. This school is terribly mismanaged. The only thing that keeps it alive is the parent’s money and the parents volunteering for each teacher. I can’t wait to move out of this area so we can ditch this place.
