I agree with the other reviews regarding bullying. My child has been treated like an outsider because one very popular student is allowed to direct his followers in name-calling and shunning. They are very young elementary. I've brought it to teachers' attention. Was dismissed saying they haven't witness it. Better curriculum than nearby public schools.
The bullying is beyond ridiculous and the allowance of these actions is even worse.
I honestly thought my child was getting a 'better' education being that it was private then we transferred and I find out in our local public school not only is there no bullying, but my child will have part of her college completed when she leaves high school in the medical field no less. Vcs does not offer this.
And all of the staff are Christians at our public school. I have come across staff at Vcs that say they wouldn't send their own children there.
When I was a child the private schools had a better education system, and you wanted to be apart of them. Now they are sub-par and for the socially awkward.
We endeavor to address issues as quickly as possible and listen to both sides of stories before we make decisions. Our students are loved and affirmed in an environment where we value the presence of the Lord and the Word of God.
There is nothing I can say bad about this school. It says a lot about the education that the kids acquire when 90% of the kids who attend this school receives a scholarships at graduation. There is not a school in this area that comes close. I have never seen a school so inviting. The school wants active parents in all areas.
This school is far from excellent. After leaving a constant bullying even physically hurt by others, my child has thrived at her new school. So much so that they will graduate with one full year of college done before they graduate high school. Something this school does not offer. The friends my children have gained don't put them down, yet instead lift them up. Something we never had at VCS, and my oldest is no longer coming home with bruises but with smiles.
