If you have a special needs student, choose any school but here! My special needs child is 6 years old, still wears a diaper, is developmentally delayed with autistic tendancies and gets suspended because the "principal" does not have time to deal wth anyone "special", she only likes the "perfect" students! Run from this school, it has been nothing but a nightmare! Good luck trying to get anyone over her head to call back as the "superintendent" refuses to take calls unless you go through 8 bazillion people before him, but none of them will return a call. So now I have to contact the State Superintendent of Public Schools & the Governor's Office to get my little guy an education. I can't get a report sent home of what happened! If they don't want to educate him, then DVUSD should let me choose a school and foot the bill! The school will be calling each day and suspending a 6 year old because he screamed, could not keep his hands to himself, threw a shoe! These people are to be trained to accomodate special needs, but they are not!
i went here trust me its fantastic, truly amazing they offer great education, fun, and strictness. (dont worry their not to strict) and after school clubs are a blast. great school
Village Meadows is an excellant school. I have had all three of my children and three of my grandchildren attend the school and they all received an excellant education. The teachers were all friendly and helpful if I ever needed any information or advice pertaining to my children. I enjoyed my Village experiance from the teachers, principal, and even the office staff.
Village Meadows is an outstanding school for students of the 21st century. All 5th & 6th grade classes have laptops for every student. These students build an e-portfolio of work including writing samples, presentatios and other projects. At the younger grades, students collaborate in small groups using Smart Tables. The atmosphere and community at the school are also amazing. This is attributed to using positive behavior interventions and supports along with weekly class discussions. For a technology and community oriented school, Village Meadows is an excellent choice. For more information please visit our website at https://villagemeadows.dvusd.org/
Village Meadows has excellent teachers, strong leadership and challenging academic programs! The technology is outstanding...Smartboards, SmartTables, document cameras and parents get a technology report card every semester. The school has a full computerize piano lab, laptops for each student in 5th adn 6th grade, and an awesome science lab. This is a fabulous place for your child to attend school!
My daughter is just finishing 6th grade and has loved this school. The teachers have been great. The curriculum is very good and extra curricular activities are great and there are plenty to choose from. They have a new gym and the school is completely enclosed and a safe place to learn. The PTO gives parents a chance to get involved. I would recommend this school highly.
I am very pleased by this school so far (knock on wood). My children are thriving and they love their teachers. Mrs. Paul is a pretty good principal. In my opinion though, she could be a bit more friendly to the parents of the students. Lupe Vakameilalo
This school continues to impress me! The teachers are so involved and excited about the learning of the children. I have a child at this school, and I would recommend it to all!!
Parents are not invited to get involved any most of the activities very often. The students have no respect for the teachers and my daughter's current teacher always complains she has too many students to meet the needs of each one.
The Principal is great, she loves each and every one of those kids. The teachers try really hard in everythig they do. The PTO is great. They try really hard to get parent participation going. I love this school. I would definitly recommend it. My daughter goes to Kindergarten there and loves it!
The academics are great, they have a gifted program, SAGE, which has improved ten fold with the new teacher. The teachers are very personable with kids and parents, but it would be nice to see more parents. The extracurricular activities are average. The front office staff is one of the friendliest in the district. The best asset to Village Meadows is it's principal Mrs. Paul. She is fair and strict in a positive manner. She expects a lot out of the children, which is very much needed in today's world. I have a choice where my children attend school, and I choose Village Meadows. You cannot ask for a better staff.
I have had or currently have children attending VM. Overall I like the school. I like the quality of teachers, most of them. But I am not crazy about the current principle. In particular I do not agree with her new Message Policy Change.
Not nearly enough control in the classrooms or playground. Kids are rowdy and downright mean to each other without any concern from the staff.
I think the academic programs are ok. I think they could do more like a spanish class or more computer classes. As far as music art and other extracurricular activites they are alright. The level of parent involement is slim to nothing. They don't offer parents to participate in alot of activites that may come up. I think more field trips of learning need to become part of their activities, school dances and most of all they need to learn more on history such as black history month!
I am thrilled to have my children in this school! The teachers and staff truly care about kids and they are dedicated to doiing anything it takes to make All students successful! I am also impressed with the level of parent involvement. I see parents helping out each and every day in a variety of ways. Outstanding!
My reveiw for VM may or may not be good in your eyes(the reader of course) but I have many things to say about it. All in all, it recently just got one of it's first remodelings in 50 years(yeah) and it turned out great. It was a pretty poor school and now has a good, strict, rule enforcing, 'yes' kind of day(you will hear this a lot, believe me)principle and is now better. However, the greatest of all about this school, is the often overlooked gifted program, or SAGE. At this time a quite a few schools have a gifted program, but none is greater than this one.In this program your child(if passed a test to get in)will have an advanced reading and/or math program and all along be helped step by step. Free learning will be applied and each child will learn at his/her own pace.
