I have four children that go to Vandagriff and the teachers are excellent. There is a strong group of volunteers, and great community support. The school itself is a little dated, but the teachers, administrators, and others more than make up for it.

The program for special needs children is way under par! We have to go outside of the district to have our childs needs met.

This is our first year at Vandagriff. We love our teacher. We see progress reports but no details but if we ask she is ready to help. It is sad that there is a very low PTO attendance. It is a friendly school but could use more parent involvement to make it a great school.

I am a teacher in another district and have lots of years experience in schools. (my grandchildren attend Vandagriff) ) I think this is a great school! The principal is very visable and the staff in the office are friendly and helpful. My grandchildren love the teachers they are very happy at Vandagriff!
