This is one of the worst schools I have ever had to attend. The staff is disrespectful and looks down on the students. They don't care if the students are learning the material that is being taught. I have struggled with math a lot this year and I think it is because one of our math teachers quit mid-year and the staff couldn't be bothered to find a replacement. During the year we had people come in to grade our school and the teachers were told to be on their "best behavior". The staff doesn't care about the students and I am glad to be going to high school finally.
As a teacher at Villago, we have an outstanding team of educators who are each passionate and progressive in our teaching styles. Most schools are struggling to embrace the Common Core guidelines, while we have teachers who have already implemented them into our classrooms. As with all schools, there are weaknesses but overall our programming before, during and after school encourages student leadership and exploration . We have an outstanding Student Council, Band, NJHS, drama, robotics, science olympiad and journalism program. We have high expectations for both academics and behavior. Our staff doesn't solely believe in a punishment based system. We work with each child to develop a relationship first, and use referrals as a final resource. Your child's experience at Villago would be a strong one.
Villago Middle School is great.....if you would settle for mediocrity. I am in all the top classes and am still not challenged. The teachers are great but they are not able to give us all of their knowledge due to what the school board has said. Even the gym classes are bad, we can't even play dodgeball with real dodge balls. The only thing I must say is that if you are forced to move here go to Villago, it's the best you can do for now. After you get out of middle school though, LEAVE, the high schools have nothing to offer. Move the Chandler area and go there, again LEAVE after middle school.
There has been quite a turnover in staff this year. The people in charge are creating a lot of stress in the school. They are worried the kids won't pass the aims test. Shouldn't they be concerned that the kids aren't learning how to reason out things? There are many great teachers there but they are not treated with respect by the admin. Of course there are some who get better treatment than others. The students are not treated equally either-- some are allowed to act up & don't get in trouble. Something is wrong there.
this is by far the best school i have ever been in! in has awesome teachers and there is no question at all the best band and drum-line not only in the state but in the country! all tough by the best band teacher ever Mr. H
In my opinion villago middle school is a school of punishment consequences, and discipline. I have a child with special needs and every time I turn around they are belittling her putting her down giving her Zap and ASD I am so tired of them. You went to school to be a teacher to care for these kids is this how you would want your children treated by other teachers at there schools. This is a job teaching so then teach them the Math the reading the science the social studies and we the (PARENTS) will do our job of raising and discipline to make them responsible mature individuals when they become adults. You have your place as a teacher and we have our place as the parents let's not step over our boundaries.
My daughter is new to the school and so far she likes it very much! I am very impressed with the band teacher as my daughter was thinking of quiting before she started at Villago. My daughter has only good things to say about all of her teachers and I am pleased so far with the level of challenging assignments.
I'm very impressed by the standards the children are held to in both education and life. I would give it a 5 star rating, but i do disagree with the athletics department of not having 6th graders play certain sports.
hello, im a student at villago middle school. i must say that i am very pleased. the teachers are very strict but effective. the teachers care about our learning. overall villago is a great school
Hi, I am a student at vms and I am very pleased. Some teachers are the best and some aren't . Yet the school has an excellent band program along with a great band teacher.
My daughter goes to Villago. I must say that I am very dissapointed. I thought that it being a new school, that it would be rather ..... excelling. But, to my surprise it is actually barely in the average. If your child or if you are a student you will undrstand my concern.
I am a parent of a student who attends Villago and have been extremely pleased with the school during it's first year. The administration are strict but effective, the teachers care a lot about the students and the band program is very strong. Villago is a step in the right direction for the CGESD.
